Cleveland Browns 2023 NFL mock draft bye week edition
Round 3 pick 96- Ruke Orhorhoro, defensive tackle, Clemson
Currently, the team lacks big playmakers in the middle of the line, though the play of Tommy Togiai has been encouraging as of late. The Browns must find a guy that can take advantage of the extra attention that Myles Garrett draws on the outside and that is exactly what they would get with Ruke Orhorhoro from Clemson.
Orhorhoro stands at 6-foot-4 and 295 pounds but has a great burst off the line and the strength to anchor the middle of the defensive line. He has a good motor and plays through the whistle on every snap even though some might consider him a little undersized. Orhorhoro would be a nice piece to add to a talented young defensive line overall.
Round 4 pick 111- Parker Washington, wide receiver, Penn State
Parker Washington brings good size at 5-foot-10 and 216 pounds as well as production to the table on day three of the draft. Last season for Penn State he had 64 grabs for 820 yards while averaging 12.8 a catch and has built off that this year with 597 yards on 13.3 a catch through nine games.
He has good speed and acceleration and can get behind a defense if you underestimate his ability to stretch the field. For a team that has some proven talent in the room and looking for depth Washington is a young prospect with some tools that could develop into a good player long term.
Round 4 pick 129- Alex Forsyth, center, Oregon
The Browns have an interesting situation with Ethan Pocic and former pick, Nick Harris, after the play of Pocic this year. Even if they re-sign Pocic (which seems likely) there’s a good chance depth at the position will be something they need.
Forsyth stands 6-foot-4 and 312 pounds and comes from a system that asks their linemen to do a lot of the same things the Browns ask of theirs. If they target interior depth he is a piece you could see Bill Callahan liking.
