Cleveland Browns: 7-Round Dawg Pound Daily collaborative mock draft — Vol. 1

Round 1: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
The biggest need for the Cleveland Browns is easily the quarterback spot. Many don’t think Baker Mayfield should be the No. 1 pick, but he makes the most sense considering how much better he looks than the other options.
Round 1: Minkah Fitzpatrick, FS, Alabama
Hands down the best defensive back in the class. This kid will shore up the free safety position for the Browns.
Round 2: Mike Hughes, CB, UCF
A potential stud corner with very limited experience. Could have a ton of upside.

Round 2: Sony Michel, RB, Georgia
Other than Saquon Barkley, no back is as complete as UGA’s Sony Michel Goodbye Mr. Crowell. The only worry is Michel’s age, he’s old for a rookie running back.
Round 2: Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado State
Another guy with limited experience gets his name called here.
Round 3: Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan
Western Michigan has turned out some pros lately, and Okorafor has a shot to be a starter down the road.
Round 4: Josey Jewell, LB, Iowa
Big production from a school that sends out minimal busts.
Round 4: Jalyn Holmes, DT, Ohio State
Wasn’t a full-time starter, but Jalyn Holmes has a lot of upside. Could shine if given the time to grow as a player. Tremendous size.
Round 5: Matthew Thomas, LB, Florida State
Talented linebacker that can play multiple positions.
Round 5: Ja’Von Rolland-Jones, EDGE, Arkansas State
Undersized and played at a small school, but still productive and worth a shot.
Round 6: Jake Wieneke, WR, South Dakota St
6-foot-4 receiver that brought in 59 touchdown passes in four seasons.
Round 7: Skyler Phillips, OG, Idaho State
Redshirt freshman guard is on the shorter side, but could add depth here.
