Cleveland Browns: 7-Round mock draft more exciting than Super Bowl LIII
Round 4, Pick 17: Lonnie Johnson, Jr., CB, Kentucky
Last offseason, John Dorsey and company added four cornerbacks that contributed on the field for the Browns, and although the national talking heads seem to think that the secondary is a day one or two priority for the Browns to address, that will likely not be the case.
Getting stellar performances out of rookie and Pro-Bowler Denzel Ward, and free agent signing Terrance Mitchell, the Browns have bided themselves an early round pick for another year as these two should be day-one locks to start for the Browns at corner for the brown and orange. However, adding a big, physical piece for depth and rotational use in the fourth round would not be a bad idea for the Dawg Pound.
Standing at a towering 6-3 and 206-pounds, Lonnie Johnson, Jr. out of Kentucky would be great value midway through the fourth round. Although Johnson did not put up huge numbers at Kentucky, he put together a solid week at the Senior Bowl and absolutely has the measurables that scouts drool over.
If he proves agile in Indianapolis at the Combine, Johnson could catapult up draft boards but for now, he finds himself coming off of the board in the fourth round.
