2. They didn’t trade down

First, try and convince a gullible friend who doesn’t know all that much about football that the Vikings are being sued. Claim Ezra Cleveland’s surname is Cleveland, which means he’s contractually obligated to play for the Cleveland Browns and that Minnesota is violating league rules.

After they take the bait, give yourself a pat on the shoulder. Well done. Now, be thankful the Boise State isn’t who the Browns tapped to be their left tackle.

There’s just a good feeling knowing Alabama and SEC stalwart Jedrick Wills is going to be protecting Baker Mayfield’s blind side. Cleveland might be a good player, but the safer bet is Wills.

It took the Browns running through Desmond Harrison and Greg Robinson to finally figure out that the left tackle needed to be addressed in the early portion of the draft. You can hem and haw about which prospect they should have taken, but Wirfs is drawing consensus praise as the right choice.

In 929 passing blocking attempts, Wills allowed one sack, I repeat, one sack, while wearing a Crimson Tide uniform.
