Daily Dawg Tags: Cleveland Browns still need safety help in the draft
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including one article saying safety help will still be needed in the draft
It’s hard to ever feel fully satisfied in the secondary.

One player to keep an eye on as a day two pick could be Jamar Johnson, a fast-rising safety prospect from Indiana. He could help ease the transition back to the field for Grant Delpit while also giving them even more depth for down the road.

In these mocks, Greg Newsome (CB) and Azeez Ojulari each make two appearances and both would be impact additions.
