Cleveland Browns: Complete 6-round 2017 Browns mock draft
The Cleveland Browns have a great chance to improve the team with 11 picks in the 2017 NFL Draft. We go through all 11 here in this mock draft.
In a previous article, I made the argument that the Cleveland Browns should not draft a quarterback. Instead, the team should stick to other positions of need in the draft this year such as pass rush, secondary, linebacker, etc.
Not only do I stand by this, but the following mock draft gives the Browns another route to go to help build success.
This draft appears to be very deep in many positions such as cornerback, wide receiver, safety and tight end, and it would behoove the Browns to stock up on as much talent as possible with all of their 11 picks. And there is quite a bit of talent they could use this year and next.
However, quarterback is a position that could be compared unfavorably to the 2013 class, despite this one being a tad stronger (but not that much).
Sure there are names like Deshaun Watson, Mitch Trubisky and Patrick Mahomes, but there is no Andrew Luck, no Matt Ryan or no Jameis Winston. In other words, there isn’t any sure-fire star quarterback that people believe will be the next “guy” for an NFL franchise.
Despite the need and history Cleveland has in the draft with quarterbacks, they need to stay away this year.
With all that in mind, Cleveland should stock up on what they can. Once you’ve seen who I think they’ll draft, you too might find yourself in my way of thinking. The selections are looking at the next four years and many of whom could turn into steals and names Browns fans chant for years to come.
