No. 1 Cleveland Browns draft prospect contender: Darnell Wright, OL, Tennessee
Darnell Wright is from the University of Tennessee and is probably already on the radar since the Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is a big fan of the Volunteers. Cleveland has a pretty established offensive line; however, they have a few potential holes.
The Browns drafted Jedrick Wills a few seasons ago to play left tackle and while he’s had a semi-decent career to this point, he hasn’t jumped off the page and truly proven himself. Some even believe that Wills could be traded.
Regardless of Will’s future with the team, Cleveland still needs to make their offensive line even stronger to help protect Deshaun Watson. Wright has had a very good career with the Volunteers and is considered one of the top prospects rising on most draft boards. Even so, he could very well be available when the Browns are on the board in Round 2.
Wright has good mobility and anticipation but what stands out most is his sheer size. The Tennessee lineman stands 6-foot-6, and 335 pounds, but can still move.
He’s also just 21 years old and can be hopefully molded into a great offensive lineman. Wright will be playing at the Senior Bowl upcoming in Mobile Alabama in two weeks so keep an eye out for him.
