The Cleveland Browns knocked their first pick out of the park and they can add even more talent, which they do in this day two mock draft
Rookie general manager Andrew Berry made an excellent selection for the Cleveland Browns as he took Alabama offensive tackle Jedrick Wills, Jr. at No. 10 overall. Throughout the entire process leading up to this draft, it seemed to be a sure thing that the Browns were going to take an offensive tackle — and they didn’t disappoint.
With only Andrew Thomas, who went to the New York Giants at No. 4, off the board, the Browns had their share of picks. Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs and Louisville’s Mekhi Becton were also available and Cleveland was linked to them at one point as well.
Both Becton and Wirfs had more experience at left tackle, which is the position they needed after signing Jack Conklin in free agency. Conklin was one of the best in the league at his right tackle position and Wills will end up making the move considering he’s more athletic and can handle the speed rushers.
The pick was a home run and will help shore up their biggest weakness. Last season, the O-line absolutely killed the team and kept Baker Mayfield from getting the ball out to Odell Beckham, Jr. and Jarvis Landry consistently. Wills will help everyone do their job better, but the work isn’t done.
Cleveland still has other needs to address and plenty of draft picks left to add the talent they need. Here, we look ahead to Friday night and predict what they will do with their selections, which as of now will come at No. 41 in Round 2 and 74 and 97 in the third.
