The Cleveland Browns, as of right now, have the 10th overall pick. This is great if they’re looking to add a future left tackle. What about drafting a linebacker at No. 10?
If the Cleveland Browns take a linebacker at No. 10 after letting Joe Schobert walk, it will be hard to support this front office. The only linebacker worth drafting at No. 10 is Isaiah Simmons, and he should be moved to safety if the Cleveland Browns draft him.
Solidify your secondary and draft heavy linebackers in the middle rounds. There will be plenty of talent in there to choose from.
Shoot, the Browns could move some pieces around and add some picks in the middle rounds if they find some guys they can’t live without. As for taking a full-fledged linebacker at No. 10: no.

Andrew Thomas is the goal here. If Thomas is there and the Browns do not draft him, or trade back, this front office will have failed. Jedrick Wills should be high on their list too. However, with picking up Jack Conklin, drafting Wills would be silly unless one of them was moved to left tackle. This scenario will most likely not end up happening.
Drafting Andrew Thomas, however, could very well end up being the reality of the Cleveland Browns. Most mock drafts have Thomas to Cleveland, or Cleveland trading out.
If you were Andrew Berry, would you pass up a day one starter, future anchor for your franchise to trade down, grab some more picks, but take a risk on a tackle who is not as polished or a sure thing like Thomas?
Rolling the dice on that pick is pushing buttons with the fan base. Draft Thomas and take a safety at No. 41 (Antoine Winfield Jr.). Boom, then Cleveland’s draft fills two huge holes on their team.
