This is as perfect of a mock draft for the Browns you could ask for. Sure, some positions you’d like to see swapped with others, but it addressed every potential issue that may arrise. Not even with the defense, which got two linebackers, two defensive tackles, a defensive end, a safety, and a cornerback. No, you also got a guard and a top-flight receiver.
The fact that not one of my preferred guys got picked, but yet everyone but one player got B’s or higher, shows you that this was a well thought out draft and that the folks at Draft Tek really did their homework on not just the needs of the team but the fit the players would have on the team.
The real prizes were Nico Collins, Chazz Surratt, and Tuf Borland. While they aren’t guaranteed to be stars or even make the team, the fact that the Browns were able to land them in this mock draft is incredible. They have upside and potential, which granted doesn’t mean anything tangible at this juncture, for evaluation purposes it’s everything.
Each pick has to have some kind of inherent value upon selection, whether that value translates to production is anyone’s guess. This draft maximized just about every pick the best they could.
Just like before, the final evaluation will be done just like a student’s grade. Each letter grade is a number value, A’s are four, B’s are three, C’s are two, and D’s are one, with F’s not getting you anything. So the final grade for the draft is.
