Cleveland Browns trade back and load up in 7-round mock draft
By Randy Gurzi
With their fourth-round pick, the Cleveland Browns look to fill another pretty big need as they add
Michael Ojemudia out of Iowa to play cornerback. Currently, they have Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and Terrance Mitchell but could use more as they recently cut T.J. Carrie.
Ojemudia is a player who can take some snaps as a rookie but is a developmental player according to most scouts — especially when it comes to man coverage. While he does have issues there, Kyle Crabbs of The Draft Network is high on his ability to play in zone coverage.
"“He’s super sharp here. He’s aggressive and routinely keys plays to jump into the catch point or crash receivers as they’re flipping their eyes up field. Much of his ball production has come from zone as well to react and flow to the throw as he navigates both deep third and flat responsibilities.” — Crabbs, The Draft Network"
He’s also an impressive prospect when looking at the numbers from the Combine. Ojemudia has great length with his 6-foot-1 frame and 32 and 1/4-inch arms. He’s also a solid 200-pounds but still moved well in drills.
Over the past two seasons, he’s really improved as well for the Hawkeyes. He had six picks in those two years while also breaking up 15 passes. Not a bad player to take a shot on at this point in the draft.
