Cleveland Browns Round 3 Pick 78: Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC
One of the players Cleveland brought in for their allotted 30 prospect visits was UCLA tight end Greg Dulcich. He’s a player with a huge catch radius that hauled in 42 passes of 725 yards with five touchdowns as a redshirt junior — then showed off in workouts after the season.
He’s been climbing boards as of late and now would likely cost a Round 3 pick for the Browns to secure him. Dulcich would join David Njoku and Harrison Bryant to again allow Kevin Stefanski to go three-deep at the position.
Cleveland Browns Round 3 Pick 99: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
Cleveland’s wide receiving corps is going to look vastly different this season with Amari Cooper now as the No. 1 receiver. In this mock, they’re banking on Donovan Peoples-Jones being capable of filling the No. 2 role but they still add some depth with Jalen Tolbert from South Alabama.
With good size (6-1, 194-pounds) and speed (sub 4.5 in the 40-yard dash), Tolbert has the tools to be a success and could become a highly-productive receiver with some patience.
Cleveland Browns Round 4 Pick 118: Matthew Butler, DT, Tennessee
Tommy Togiai and Jordan Elliott are likely to start the season at defensive tackle for the Browns, with Sheldon Day as a rotational player. They need to add more depth there and while it was tempting to go for a tackle earlier, this regime doesn’t seem to place a whole lot of importance on the position.
That’s why they wait until Round 4, where they still land a solid option in Matthew Butler from Tennessee. He’s most likely a 3-technique but has the power to fill in some as a 1-tech. He might not be able to start from day one but has enough talent to potentially do this down the road while competing for snaps as a rookie.
