As many fantasy players religiously harp on finding the perfect MLB lineups to submit daily, hardcore NFL enthusiasts are viewing closely what their favorite teams are attempting to select in tomorrow’s NFL draft. No team needs more of a makeover than the Cleveland Browns including at quarterback, defensive back, and defensive end. The good news for Browns fans is the team has six of the first 65 picks in this year’s draft. Yet the opportunity for the Browns will be to get it right since in previous drafts the team has not done well in their selections including most recently with Johnny Manziel, Justin Gilbert, and Barkevious Mingo. Most prognosticators have the Browns selecting defensive end Myles Garrett from Texas A&M but do not put it in the bank. Many believe the Browns are considering taking former North Carolina quarterback, and Cleveland native, Mitchell Trubisky with the number one pick to ensure he is not taken later in the round by San Francisco, New York Jets, or Buffalo Bills.
One must remember that this franchise is presently run by a group of analytical executives, led by Sashi Brown, which leaves open the possibility that the Browns will again trade down to accumulate more picks since the team is so far off from contending for a playoff spot. Other names to keep your eye on that may land with the Browns in round one include tight end O.J. Howard, and cornerback Gareon Conley. In the end, if the Browns get it right they could potentially rebuild the team as quickly as Jimmy Johnson’s Dallas Cowboys of the 90s. Yet this is the Browns, so one would expect something to go array.
