Daily Dawg Tags: The endless first-round possibilities


The Cleveland Browns enter the 2017 NFL Draft with two picks in the first round, and the possibilities are endless as mock draft season rolls on.

It is only February but Cleveland Browns fans have already offered countless opinions of what the Browns should do with their two first-round draft picks. It wouldn’t be a Browns offseason if this weren’t the case.

The Browns have a legitimate chance to take the next step toward being a competitive team by landing stars with these two picks, and the team cannot afford to draft any more busts after so many years of whiffing on picks.

One possibility is that the team trades one of the picks for a current NFL player, such as trading the No. 12 overall pick for Jimmy Garoppolo, but this would be a risk for a team that has a chance to take a top prospect to help improve another position in need besides quarterback.

Because if the Browns trade a pick for a quarterback and that individual is a bust, the team may be set back even further. And that would be a disaster.

Everyone has an opinion, which is the beauty of this time of year, but it is down to a small group of individuals to ultimately make the right decisions to help turn this franchise around. Let’s hope they don’t let us down.

Time to take a look at this and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
