The Cleveland Browns address key needs with their nine picks in this 2018 NFL Mock Draft

The Cleveland Browns have nine total picks in the 2018 NFL Draft this year, including five in the first two rounds. There is a lot they can do with those picks, including trading some of them for proven players or even more picks to potentially recover some they lost in trades earlier this off-season.

Trades are of course what got them the multiple picks early on, but the best idea this time may be to simply stay put and select the best available players to strengthen their roster.

Here is how I see it playing out if they hold on to all of the current picks they have and just make their picks.

Most people think USC’s Sam Darnold is the most polished quarterback in the draft and the Browns need to get this right this year. Dorsey takes no chances and drafts this signal caller to sit behind the recently aquired Tyrod Taylor for a year or possibly even two.

In two seasons as a starter with the Trojans, Darnold completed just under 65 percent of his passes with 7,229 yards. He threw 57 touchdowns against 22 interceptions.
