Surprising names fall to Cleveland Browns in new 7-Round mock draft
By Clay Goodwin
Round 6, Pick 167: Jordan Fuller, Safety, Ohio State University
In the 6th round, the Browns get another safety to add competition and depth to their void. Jordan Fuller from The Ohio State University falls to pick 167 for Cleveland. Fuller is a very smart player. While he does not have the most speed or athleticism, he uses great anticipation and angles to make plays.
He’s a good tackler and is always in the right spot when you need him to be. Fuller was a team captain for the Buckeyes in 2019 and was a great leader for the team. He may not make the big, highlight level play that catches people’s eye, but Fuller is a reliable and mature presence to have in your defensive backfield. Another Buckeye to excel in the NFL.
Round 7, Pick 221: Mike Panasiuk, Defensive Tackle, Michigan State University
In the 7th Round, Cleveland attempts to find late, interior defensive line depth. The Browns select, Mike Panasiuk with the 221st pick. Panasiuk played at Michigan State University all four years while starting his junior and senior seasons.
Listed at 6’4 and 300 pounds, Panasiuk is a massive body that can fill run lanes. The Browns have two very solid starting defensive tackles but lack any true backups. Panasiuk is a guy that can come fill in for run-stop situations.
He had nine tackles for loss this past season. He is extremely powerful and can use leverage to blow up the offensive line. The Browns desperately need a run-stopping DT and hope Panasiuk can develop into a solid reserve.
The Cleveland Browns get a great package of players in the 2020 NFL draft. While there may not be any big names or flashy picks, this is the kind of draft the Browns needed. The team gets much better in positions of need and will be much better on the offensive line and defensive backfield.
