Cleveland Browns Week 12 mock draft all about protecting Baker Mayfield
By Randy Gurzi
The Cleveland Browns have had some issues up front this season and they try and address that problem in this 7-round 2020 NFL Mock Draft
At 4-6, the Cleveland Browns still have some hopes to make this season a success. They have a favorable schedule down the stretch and are on a two-game winning streak which is impressive considering they were 2-6 and looking ready for implosion.
Somehow, they were able to stare disaster in the face and found a way to get things turned around. That’s not to say all is perfect now because it’s not. While they did knock off the Buffalo Bills in Week 10 on a late touchdown from Baker Mayfield to Rashard Higgins and followed that up with an easy win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, they do have a lot to fix.
The biggest thing is clearly their discipline. This team gets penalties at an alarming rate and on Thursday Night Football they completely lost their cool. Defensive end Myles Garrett got into it with Mason Rudolph of the Steelers and is suspended indefinitely (pending appeal) for hitting the quarterback with a helmet in the altercation.
Losing their defensive star will be hard to overcome but they do have enough weapons on offense to put points on the board and rack up some wins. The only question is whether or not they can get it together on that side of the ball as they’ve been out of rhythm and their offensive line has been outright bad to this point.
With that in mind, we look ahead to the 2020 NFL Draft with this mock and add some talent, with that very offensive line being the primary focus.
