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.
