The Cleveland Browns are getting ready for the 2020 NFL Draft. Here are 10 prospects who can be selected by Cleveland.
With the draft coming up quickly towards the end of the month, the Cleveland Browns are in an all-out sprint to get caught up in preparations. With it sounding like the draft will be held remotely, GM Andrew Berry must be prepared and organized to lead his first-ever NFL Draft.
As we continue to keep you updated on all the latest notes and rumor’s here at Dawg Pound Daily, here is a list of 10 prospects who could potentially wear the Brown and Orange next fall.
No. 10: Anthony McFarland RB, Maryland
Anthony McFarland is a player to watch out for on day three of the draft. The former Maryland Terp could be considered for a role as a scatback out of the backfield in Kevin Stefanski’s new offense. With two great running backs on the roster as is, developing a third running back could be useful in case of injury.
And with Kareem Hunt in the last year of his deal, it may be hard for the Browns to pay two top running backs so having a solid third back is crucial. McFarland had some excellent games for Maryland over his career including one against Ohio State where he single-handedly almost beat the Buckeyes with 298 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
The speedy back caught 17 passes last season for 126 yards and a score. As a late-round pick, McFarland could be worth the gamble with his play-making abilities and good hands out of the backfield.
No. 9: David Woodward LB, Utah State
David Woodward could be seen as a mid to late round replacement for Joe Schobert. Expected to play the MIKE position in the NFL, Woodward demonstrates the smart and tackling to succeed at the next level.
In three seasons playing for Utah State, Woodward registered 252 tackles and eight sacks while also being responsible for six forced fumbles. He led the Mountain West Conference in total tackles in 2018 with 134 and if it wasn’t for injury he would have probably done the same in 2019.
