The beauty of all NFL Mock Draft posts is that no one really knows what is going to happen. We may have some ideas of what we think might happen but every year many of our expectations, especially after the Top 5 are proven wrong. Players get drafted higher than expected and we call it a reach. Players get drafted lower than expected and we call it a steal.
Today we will have at least two 4 Round NFL Mock Draft posts for you. This one is what I, Jared Mueller, would do if I were drafting for the Cleveland Browns. I will not be using FanSpeak, though I really enjoy having that tool at our disposal, but just looking at what I think could happen and where I would select players. I will give options, since I can already hear “that is a reach” and “NO WAY he falls that far” coming from some of you.
First let me give you my assessed team needs, in order of importance: QB, NT, OLB, TE, WR, OL, ILB, FS, CB. Important to note that I also do not believe in need based drafting. Needs get filtered in to my Best Grade Available belief. For example a corner with a 95 evaluation grade might get skipped to draft a receiver with a 93 evaluation grade.
I look forward to your feedback and thoughts in the comment section or on social media.
Given all that here we go:
