The Cleveland Browns are once again the biggest wild card in the NFL draft. If you need some proof, then look no further then the expert’s mock drafts. There is a case to be made for the Browns selecting any one of six different players with the fourth overall pick.
The reason there is so much disagreement is because the Browns have so many pressing needs. Among them, and most glaringly, is the quarterback position. Depending on who you ask, there are varying degrees of satisfaction with this class of signal-callers.
If the Browns want a quarterback at No. 4, then one will be there for them to select. If they want another offensive playmaker, then Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins could be available.
Perhaps they want to strengthen their offensive line or linebacking units. Both offensive tackle Jake Matthews and linebacker Khalil Mack could do the trick.
With general manager Ray Farmer protecting his information like it’s the nuclear launch codes, we are all left to our own guesses, including the experts.
Here are five of the most respected names in mock drafting and the players they have the Browns selecting in the first round.
