Logan Wilson, LB Wyoming
Wyoming’s senior linebacker Logan Wilson is a player whose stock has been continually on the rise. The Browns reportedly met with Wilson at his Pro Day in early March.
Wilson was a three-time team captain for the Cowboys of Wyoming and has made 52 consecutive starts. His 421 career tackles rank No. 4 in Wyoming history as well as No. 4 in the history of the Mountain West Conference.

To the delight of Browns fans, he has plenty of experience playing middle linebacker and could eventually fill the void of Joe Schobert‘s departure.
The issue is, Wilson’s stock is continually on the rise. With 22 teams attending his Pro Day after a super impressive Senior Bowl, Wilson has morphed to be much more than a “sleeper” prospect and has definitely cemented himself as one of the top ten linebackers in this class. Linebacker is a position of great need for the Browns, and they could address that need by drafting Wilson as soon as the third round.
Ezra Cleveland, OT Boise State
It seems like Ezra Cleveland is meant to be a Brown, and it has way more to do than just his last name.
While Cleveland certainly didn’t have the dominant career or combine of the “big name” offensive tackles that are projected at No. 10 such as Tristan Wirfs, Mekhi Becton, and Andrew Thomas, he could certainly be a first-round prospect that the Browns are considering.
In the past, analytically-driven approaches have caused the Browns to trade back in the first round to acquire more draft picks. If that happens in 2020, Cleveland is a left tackle that the Browns have dumped plenty of resources into. The Browns have reportedly met with Cleveland at his Pro Day, at the combine, as well as a private meeting.
Like Logan Wilson, Cleveland had a promising Senior Bowl that caused his stock to begin to rise. After redshirting in 2016, Cleveland stepped into the starting left tackle role for all 14 games in 2017. He was a first-team All-Mountain West Conference his final year on campus, starting 13 games at left tackle his junior season.
Cleveland projects as a late first-round, early second-round selection. If the Browns draft a position other than an offensive tackle at No. 10 overall, or acquire Trent Williams, they can possibly trade back into Round No. 1 for Cleveland, who will likely be the seventh or eighth offensive lineman selected.
