The Athletic’s Dane Brugler is out, mocking new players to the Cleveland Browns in his 7-round mock. Here’s how his picks graded out.

The Athletic’s Dane Brugler is one of the best NFL Draft analysts in the business, and The Athletic’s writer is out with a seven-round mock for the Cleveland Browns and every other team in the NFL.

Talk about yeomen’s work. It’s a wonder as to how long it took Brugler to compile such a comprehensive list.

As for the NFL Draft, the league is still moving ahead with the show despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Some teams expressed concerns about drafting remotely, specifically about security concerns.

The argument didn’t make a lot of sense to me, because if someone wanted to hack a team bad enough, they could’ve done it, no matter the location.

When it comes to the Browns, the new format shouldn’t slow the Browns and their Ivy League front office. Heck, their classmates probably invented the clouds and zooms the teams will use to communicate.

Plus, Paul DePodesta, the team’s chief strategy office, has notoriously telecommuted into work from his home outside San Diego, so this this old hat for the sabermetics gru.

Ok, enough, Brugler’s mock is in, so here’s how his picks grade out when it comes to the Browns.
