2011 NFL Draft: 3 Names the Cleveland Browns Should Get to Know Round 2

Hopefully, you have had the opportunity to see my piece for the three guys the Browns need to know for Round one. If you didn't have a chance to check it out, please visit it here.

The Browns have several needs or holes to fill heading into the coming season. Whether they choose to select Patrick Peterson, Robert Quinn or A.J. Green is still undecided. The team is probably going to try and upgrade its defensive line or wide receiving corps by the time the weekend has ended.

If they move on either A.J. Green or Julio Jones on the first night of the draft, what does that mean for their first pick on day two? Or, if they choose a D-line player at No. 6 overall, do they then look for a WR to stretch the field and fit into their new west coast offensive system?

One thing is for sure, options will be a plenty. The team will need to solidify the other of their two biggest needs (WR, DL) with this pick.

Last season, I admit, I was completely skeptical of the T.J. Ward pick because, like many of you, I had no idea who he was. This is why I'm not a scout. They managed to find an absolute diamond in the rough and his punishing hit in the middle of the end zone against Jordan Shipley of Cincinnati cemented his place in our hearts.

These are the three difference makers the Browns can hope to land on Friday night.
