Cleveland Browns: Redrafting the past five first-rounds
By Tyler Hise
2016, Round 1, Pick 15
Original Pick: Corey Coleman, Wide Receiver, Baylor
Updated Pick: Taylor Decker, Offensive Tackle, Ohio State
Look, I like Coleman as much as the next guy, but his inability to stay healthy hasn’t been worth the first round pick we spent on him. In this scenario, we take Taylor Decker who has been a standout in Detroit, to help seal up our O-Line.
2017, Round 1, Pick 1
Original Pick: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M
Updated Pick: Myles Garrett, Defensive End, Texas A&M
Not much to say except that he is going to be a force for a long time to come.
2017, Round 1, Pick 25
Original Pick: Jabrill Peppers, Safety, Michigan
Updated Pick: T.J Watt, Linebacker, Wisconsin
I struggled to make this pick simply because Peppers is so talented and can be great in this league. I personally think the Browns have been misusing him. Either way, he didn’t make as big of an impact as most people would have liked in his rookie season.
Having a Watt brother is like having a cheat code, their football IQ and overall skill-sets are incredible. Watt would have greatly improved our linebacker corp.

2017, Round 1, Pick 29
Original Pick: David Njoku, Tight End, Miami(FL)
Updated Pick: David Njoku, Tight End, Miami(FL)
I am super excited to see Njoku in 2018. I think he is a great fit and is a big physical Tight End who can go get the ball. I wouldn’t change this pick.
