Cleveland Browns Round 2 Pick: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan
It feels like only yesterday when we were praising the Cleveland Browns offensive line as one of the best in the NFL. But in 2021, they were anything but.
Not only was Baker Mayfield sacked a career-high 43 times (in just 14 games) but there were times when they couldn’t get the push they needed on short-yardage downs. The main reason for these struggles wasn’t talent though, but rather injuries.
Jedrick Wills hurt his ankle early and never looked right after that. Jack Conklin was also lost to a severe injury and there are concerns going forward about his health. Throw in the loss of Chris Hubbard and the offensive line was just decimated in 2021.
With all that being said, they go for Bernhard Raimann from Central Michigan with their second-round pick. A potential starter, Raimann could slide in at right tackle and replace Conklin if he’s not ready to go — and if he is, he would be a great swing tackle.
Cleveland Browns Round 3 Pick: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
One player that is starting to get a lot of attention heading into the draft is Skyy Moore from Western Michigan. He had a solid start to his career but then in 2021, he went off.
The redshirt sophomore had 94 receptions for 1,283 yards and 10 touchdowns in his final collegiate campaign. He ends up being the Browns first pick in Round 3 (they have one more coming up) and could be a steal at this point.
His addition would not only help them revamp the receiving corps but it would take some pressure off Jameson Williams — who we took two picks ago — and keep him from forcing his way back too early.
