Randy: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
The Browns need help on the interior of their defensive line and Christian Wilkins is the best fit at this spot. He can play either technique in Steve Wilks’ defense and will give them a well-rounded duo when paired with Larry Ogunjobi. The Clemson defensive line was incredible, and the Browns start to build their own version here.

Cory: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
The Browns find themselves in a position to more than likely replace Jamie Collins, who is expected to become a cap casualty. After putting on a show at the combine yesterday, Devin Bush makes the leap to the 17th pick and lands at home with the Cleveland Browns; three picks before the Pittsburgh Steelers have a chance to snag him. Running a 4.44 40 yard dash, a sub-seven second 3-cone time, and having some extremely impressive game film, Bush has the perfect combination of a gritty attitude and athletic build to fit with Joe Schobert on the Browns’ defense.
Shane: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
Sticking with the same pick, the Browns need another stud on their defensive line, and Wilkins is one of the elite in this year’s draft. Pairing Wilkins, a potential star, next to Larry Ogunjobi might be too much to pass up, and too much for the aging offensive lines of the AFC North to handle.
