Cleveland Browns 2019 NFL Mock Draft: Post Hue Jackson draft moves
By Randy Gurzi
After moving on from Hue Jackson and staying silent at the deadline, we know the Cleveland Browns are looking to 2019, which is what we do with this mock draft
This past week has seen a lot of change sweep through Berea as the Cleveland Browns have made some big moves. Now, they’ve been making moves since John Dorsey took over as general manager, but this week was different.
We already saw Dorsey shake up the roster. He brought in three new quarterbacks in Baker Mayfield, Tyrod Taylor, and Drew Stanton. He also added a new receiver in Jarvis Landry, running back in Nick Chubb, and two new tackles on the edges with Desmond Harrison and Chris Hubbard.
Defensively, we saw a change to the defensive backfield with Damarious Randall taking over at free safety and Denzel Ward becoming the No. 1 corner. There were other changes like Genard Avery coming in at linebacker and shining as a rookie.
The moves weren’t turning the Browns into a winner though, which is what led to the moves following their Week 8 loss. That’s when Dorsey and team owner Jimmy Haslam finally decided to move on from Hue Jackson and his record of 3-36-1.
Jackson wasn’t the only casualty, as offensive coordinator Todd Haley also was shown the door. Gregg Williams took over as interim coach and then the team was silent at the trade deadline, which shows they’re focused on the next chapter — 2019.
Here, we too focus on the next season with a look ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft. With that being said, here’s a full seven-round mock trying to help the Browns complete their roster overhaul.
