Third round

Round 3, No. 68 (from Jags)-Curtis Weaver-DE-Boise St-In this range keep an eye on production, Weaver is the all-time leader sack leader in the Mountain West, James Lynch from Baylor was super productive as well.

As for the Browns, Olivier Vernon is still on the roster, and if he maintains his job, he’ll make $15.5 million in 2020. After that, he’ll be a free agent and the Browns will need to seriously think about adding depth at the position. They can do that by taking someone like Weaver.

Round 3, No. 74-Devin Duvernay-WR-Texas-Pay attention this spot, and even later on, because the Browns need to look at another wideout or pass catcher.

Tight end is coming later, but at No. 74, Duvernay gives the Browns a burner. Keep an eye on Bryan Edwards, the WR from South Carolina or Gabriel Davis from UCF as well.

On paper, the Browns are solid up top with Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, but the team’s depth is severely lacking after Rashard Higgins was free to walk away.

Keep in mind that the Browns trade OBJ seemingly every day in the national press, and well, you just never know when you’re going to need another receiver.
