Round 4: Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State

Jack Conklin is likely in his final season with the Browns and James Hudson proved he deserves a shot at the right tackle position if he were to leave. If that does happen, bringing in more talent is a must — and the front office knows this as they saw Nick Harris go down right after taking the starting center job.

Enter Dawand Jones from Ohio State. A massive 6-foot-8, 360-pounder, Jones cane be developed into a major player under Bill Callahan.

Round 4: Al Walcott, CB, Baylor

Greedy Williams is likely out and as we’ve seen with Denzel Ward and Greg Newsome this season, injuries will always be a problem with their starting corners. That’s why the Browns add Al Walcott from Baylor with their second pick in the fourth round.

Listed at 6-foot-2 and 211-pounds, Walcot has the desired size to go up against any receivers and has experience at both cornerback and safety.

Round 5: Parker Washington, WR, Penn State

Donovan Peoples-Jones has turned into a stellar No. 2 wide receiver but there are still more questions than answers behind him and Amari Cooper. That’s why it makes sense to throw more darts at the board, which is why Parker Washington from Penn State is added.

Washington doesn’t have overly impressive numbers but he’s a solid contributor that can return kicks. The more you can do, the better your chances are when picked on the final day.
