The 2011 NFL Draft is fast approaching and the Cleveland Browns finally have a coaching staff in place.
Now is the time for the team to begin work on a list of players and begin evaluating targets for the upcoming draft.
The following list includes 10 targets with various draft expectations covering all seven rounds.
Last season, the Browns traded away their final pick in the 2011 NFL draft to the Seattle Seahawks for Seneca Wallace.
The list will begin with the 165th overall pick in the sixth round...
Chykie Brown will be a great late-round pickup for any team that has a little time to develop their secondary.
Cleveland already has Joe Haden, Sheldon Brown, and Eric Wright to lead the forefront of the cornerback unit so picking up a developmental player like Chykie Brown would make sense.
Although Brown suffered through injuries during his final season with the Longhorns, experts say that he should be able to bounce back and still have a productive NFL career.
Brown also played alongside Cleveland's quarterback, Colt McCoy, for several years at Texas.
Niles Paul had a solid career at the University of Nebraska as a slot receiver and a weak side run blocker.
Paul caught 103 passes over his college career for 1,500 yards and 5 touchdowns.
This pick would make sense for Cleveland if they decide to go in a defensive direction early in the draft rather than addressing their needs at wide receiver.
Paul could be a great addition underneath in a west coast offense that will more than likely be focused around a short and precise passing attack.
Paul also fits the role of a return specialist as he gained nearly 2,000 yards on special teams during his career.
Browns' fans love the hometown heroes from Ohio State whenever they get drafted to Cleveland.
Brian Rolle fits the mold of a speedy linebacker that has a great upside and good instincts.
In 2010, Rolle collected a total of 76 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Rolle also picked off two passes and forced one fumble.
Rolle would fit nicely into a linebacker corps that is beginning to show wear and tear with age.
Rolle's ability to drop into coverage and track on drag routes would also be beneficial as Dick Jauron is known for his complex 4-3 schemes.
Ras-I Dowling would be a huge stretch for the Cleveland Browns during the fourth round, which leads me to believe that the pick will have no chance of happening.
Although, Dowling is still projected in the early-middle fourth round and Cleveland has seemed interested in every cornerback prospect available.
Dowling only played in five games in 2010 as a member of the Virginia Cavaliers. Injuries sidelined him for a great portion of the year and forced him to only record 12 tackles in 2010 and one broken pass.
Dowling's biggest injury woes came against the University of Maryland as he suffered a fractured ankle and was forced to miss the remainder of the year.
Jarvis Jenkins is exactly the type of 4-3 defensive tackle that the Cleveland Browns would need in order to help solidify the run defense next season.
At 6'4 and 309 pounds, Jenkins recorded nine tackles for a loss in 2010 and pressured the quarterback 16 times.
That type of production is something that Cleveland has not seen from a defensive tackle since Shaun Rogers first came to Cleveland from the Detroit Lions.
Jenkins would fit in nicely in Cleveland as he would alternate with Athyba Rubin and Shaun Rogers (assuming he will still be on the roster) at the middle of the defensive front.
In most NFL mock drafts, Casey Matthews is projected to be selected near the end of the third round to either the Green Bay Packers or Baltimore Ravens.
If Cleveland would happen to take the chance on Matthews early in the second round, he would be the second linebacker on this list that could make a great impact in just his first season.
In 2010, Matthews had a total of 73 tackles for the Ducks while recording three sacks and three interceptions.
Matthews is also a son of former Cleveland Browns linebacker, Clay Matthews Sr. Casey Matthews' brother, Clay Matthews Jr., plays for the Green Bay Packers.
Leonard Hankerson is considered the best "impact" receiver that will more than likely still be available for teams in the second round.
In 2010, Hankerson caught 72 passes and 13 touchdowns for a Miami team that eventually lost in the Hyundai Sun Bowl.
Hankerson had his best game against the Clemson Tigers on October 2. Hankerson caught seven balls on the day for 143 yards and three touchdowns.
The Browns need for a wide receiver is quite obvious as the team has continually struggled with passing for the last several years.
Mike Holmgren stated earlier in the off-season that getting Colt McCoy some weapons would be vital to his success. If the Browns lose out on the wide receiver battle in the first round, Hankerson could be a great pickup.
As stated before, the Browns will be switching to a 4-3 defense in 2011 and the need for strong pass rushers will have to be a priority if the defense is going to be successful.
Jeremy Beal is a pure pass rusher with 29 sacks over his four seasons with the Sooners which included 11 sacks in the 2009 season alone.
Beal has great size and an unparalleled ability to come off his blocks and get to the quarterback.
Cleveland has a need for defensive ends which makes this pick a bit of a no-brainer if Beal's combine workouts go well and he is available at 37.
A.J. Green is the obvious selection for the Cleveland Browns with the sixth overall pick in the draft. The only problem is that Green may already be off the board.
Green is listed as the best wide receiver in the entire 2011 draft class and any team with offensive tribulation would be more than happy to add him to their receiving corps.
Many mocks have the Cincinnati Bengals selecting Green with the fourth overall pick in the first round but that is based off of the idea that the Bengals will be in a complete rebuilding state by late April.
If the Bengals can work out their differences with Carson Palmer and retain either Chad Ochocinco (soon to be Johnson again) or Terrell Owens, I would expect the Bengals to head the defensive route leaving Green open for Cleveland.
In 2010, Green had 848 receiving yards and nine touchdowns after missing the first four games of the season.
If A.J. Green is off the board, Da'Quan Bowers is exactly what the Cleveland Browns defense needs to start off the Pat Shurmur era on the right foot.
Bowers has everything a team needs in his size, speed and overall football presence.
Bowers had a great 2010 season in general, as he won the ACC Player of The Year Award.
Bowers would have much of the same role as was previously discussed for Jeremy Beal, although Bowers should prove to be slightly more productive than Beal at the NFL level.
