The NFL Draft has a different feel for the Cleveland Browns in 2022, as the franchise is without a first round pick in the aftermath of the Deshaun Watson trade.

If  Watson is a top three quarterback like the Browns believe, then there you have your first-round pick for at least the next five seasons.

With the draft quickly approaching, mocks are being published at a high-octane rate. Who’s going where? Who fits where? What are the best value picks. Oh yeah, it’s that time of year and we all love it.

Some are wondering if the Browns might trade back into the first round, and while unlikely, it’s not impossible to conjure up a scenario, especially with Cleveland possessing two third-round selections.

If they did make a move, it’d probably be in the mid-to-late 20s and it would be for an offensive player. I just can’t see a defensive player who would be available that would warrant a trade up.

This latest Browns seven-round mock comes from Josh Edwards of CBS Sports. Lets’s take a look and see if his picks make the grade.
