Mock Draft Roundup: 2 players consistently projected to Browns make headlines this week — Andrew Gribble, ClevelandBrowns.com
"“Simmons reportedly suffered a serious knee injury during a workout. Simmons did not receive an invitation to the NFL Combine because of an off-field incident during his high school days but was anticipated by many to be a first-round pick.”"
Gribble talked about a photo of Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf that’s gone around social media where he looks absolutely jacked as one headline. The other was Jeffery Simmons of Mississippi State tearing his ACL which severely hurts his draft stock. Although, it could help the Browns land him later in the draft while addressing other needs in the first.
If Kareem Hunt helps instead of hurts people, the Browns’ signing is a victory — Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com
"“A devout Catholic, Dorsey believes in redemption and second chances. He believes he can look into the eyes of a player and see his soul. The many times he’s looked into Hunt’s eyes since he began to scout him in 2016 for the Chiefs, he’s seen a good man and not the one who was captured on video almost a year ago shoving and kicking a woman in a hallway at the Metropolitan at The 9 in downtown Cleveland.”"
John Dorsey is never afraid of risks and this is the second time he has taken one with Kareem Hunt. We will all have to wait and see how it unfolds.
