Round 4, Pick 114: Terrell Edmunds, Safety, Virginia Tech

Brother of Trumaine Edmunds, Terrell Edmunds has been overshadowed by his sibling throughout his time with the Hokies. He gets a chance with Cleveland here to finally show what he’s made of.

Even with the addition of Damarious Randall on defense, Cleveland needs that one last piece to finish off their new secondary. Edmunds could be the choice here, and that’s mighty exciting for both sides.

Round 5, Pick 150: Micah Kiser, Linebacker, Virginia

The next pick, also coming out of the state of Virginia, could greatly help the Browns’ front seven. Micah Kiser is a bit undersized, but he can fly from sideline to sideline. At this point, the Browns are likely going best player available on every pick.

Joe Schobert is a good option, but he is no world-beater. Fans can expect Kiser to take over the starting middle linebacker spot by the end of the year, hopefully clawing it away from Schobert, adding even more value to the pick.

Round 6, Pick 175: Chukwuma Okorafor, Tackle, Western Michigan

Getting Okorafor in this round would be a total steal. At pick No. 175, Okorafor looks like a total stud. But, if for some reason he really does fall this far, there must be a reason why.

There have been reports that Okorafor looked “soft” during his time at Western Michigan. However, throughout his college tape, he had glimpses of total dominance. If the Browns can manage to unleash that in full, we could be looking at a replacement for the great Joe Thomas.

Round 6, Pick 188: Godwin Igwebuike, Safety, Northwestern

Again, the Browns go with the best player available here. Igwebuike is a known sleeper in this class, and the Browns could be getting some great value by taking him in the sixth round.

Not much to say about Igwebuike; you just have to watch him play. He kept Northwestern’s defense locked in for the entire year, and that obviously means something.
