With each passing day of the NFL offseason, the Cleveland Browns’ game plan becomes clearer. General manager Ray Farmer may have been a wild card of sorts entering free agency, but his plan to rebuild the Browns is slowly coming to light.
As promised, the Browns have used their cap space to fill holes in the roster. Safety Donte Whitner, linebacker Karlos Dansby and running back Ben Tate can all be classified as upgrades at their positions. These signings, along with the release of quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell, paint a picture of who the Browns might draft in May.
When I wrote the seven-round mock draft of “best case scenarios” for the Browns back in January, I had them selecting a quarterback and wide receiver with their first two picks. Farmer’s actions have done nothing but strengthen the case that they will draft a ton of offense early.
Here is my latest seven-round mock draft for the Browns. If this scenario comes true, they will have a huge face lift on the offensive side of the football.
