The Cleveland Browns' overall big board is a list that breaks down the team's ten top-rated players in the entire draft.
This board will be completely fluid until draft day. Even then, it may change as the top five picks may change things tremendously for the Browns' war room.
1. Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama (Top 10)
Cornerback is a key concern for the Browns this offseason. Former Alabama DB Dee Milliner is the best cover corner in this draft and would provide the Browns would a formidable tandem on the corners.
2. Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida (Top 10)
Sharrif Floyd is rapidly rising during pre-draft events, but for different reasons than what the Browns are interested in. He has the size and athletic ability that could help him transition to an imposing 3-4 defensive end at the next level.
3. Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia (Top 15)
Medical concerns are the only reasons Jarvis Jones is not No. 1 on many teams' draft boards this season. Cleveland would be wise to do its own investigating and have Jones checked out prior to draft day. If they take the gamble, they will be getting one of the best players in the draft.
4. Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon (Top 15)
Dion Jordan is an athletic freak at 6'6" and 243 pounds. He wowed us all at the NFL Scouting Combine but left some question marks after announcing he would undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum.
Someone is going to take a chance on him. Will it be Cleveland?
5. Ezekiel Ansah, OLB, BYU (Top 15)
At 6'5" and 271 pounds, Ezekiel Ansah might not immediately fit in the Cleveland Browns' new defense. But, I'm sure they would be willing to make an exception in order to add the dominating pass-rusher to the fold. Ansah will be a matchup problem for most teams he faces if his massive but raw athletic ability can be harnessed by his new team.
6. Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU (Top 20)
Barkevious Mingo is right behind his peers as one of the best options available in this class at the pass-rusher position. The problem for Cleveland is that, while he is an interesting prospect at outside linebacker in their new 3-4 scheme, Mingo wants to play defensive end at the next level (h/t CBS Sports' Larry Hartstein).
7. Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama (Top 20)
Adding another hog to the already solid group of offensive linemen isn't a bad idea for Cleveland. The team definitely needs help at the right guard position, making Chance Warmack an intriguing option.
Is taking an interior lineman this high worth it, though?
8. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia (Top 10)
Geno Smith isn't going to the Kansas City Chiefs. That's about all we know about the debated top quarterback in this draft class. Cleveland missed out on Robert Griffin III last season, but that was a different regime with a different plan.
If Joe Banner likes Smith he could surprise a lot of people by taking a gamble on him at No. 6 (or at least pretend he will in order to trade out of the pick).
9. Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State (Top 15)
Big, physical and quick cornerbacks are becoming the norm as wide receivers and tight ends get even bigger and faster. If cornerback is the route the Browns go, and Dee Milliner is off of the board, don't be surprised if Xavier Rhodes makes a monumental leap into the top 10.
10. Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina (Top 20)
Jonathan Cooper is the next best thing when it comes to interior linemen in this draft. If Cleveland trades down, you have to imagine they would consider bolstering their offensive line with someone like Cooper if Warmack and some of their other targets are off of the board already.
11. Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas (Top 20)
Safety is a concern for Cleveland, but not the most pressing of the bunch. Still, the impact of a ball-hawking safety playing centerfield for the defense cannot be understated. Texas' Kenny Vaccaro will be a baller at the next level and will get some consideration from Cleveland in a trade-down scenario.
12. Sheldon Richardson, DT/DE, Missouri (Top 20)
Former Missouri DT Sheldon Richardson has the tools to be a disruptive 3-4 defensive end. He can shoot gaps, beat blockers one on one and stuff running backs in the backfield.
His athleticism will help in that transition, but he doesn't have the measurables (arm length and height) that teams typically look for at the position.
13. Datone Jones, DE, UCLA (Round 1 to 2)
Former UCLA defensive end Datone Jones is an interesting option for the Browns at the 3-4 defensive end position. A trade-down scenario, garnering a late-first or second-round pick would position the team to selective the 6'4", 280-pound defensive end.
14. Alec Ogeltree, LB, Georgia (Round 1 to 2)
Off-the-field problems aside, former Georgia linebacker Alec Ogeltree is the type of physical presence the Browns could utilize at any linebacking position in its new 3-4 defense.
15. Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame (Round 1 to 2)
Adding an impact tight end this offseason is likely one of the top priorities of this new regime. Tyler Eifert is the best pass-catcher in this tight end class, making him a logical target for Rob Chudzinski and Norv Turner as they construct their new offense.
