Can this young man lead the Cleveland Browns out of the "Decade of Draft Doldrums?"
We will find out in a matter of days. Quick capsules included for players I have not introduced in previous mocks.
Round One, Pick No. Seven
Eric Berry - Free Safety, University of Tennessee
Round Two, Pick No. 38
Colt McCoy - Quarterback, University of Texas
Round Three, Pick No. 71
Akwasi Owusu-Ansah - Cornerback, Indiana University (PA)
Big physical corner from a small Division Two school. Could be an impact right away on special teams.
Round Three, Pick No. 85
Cam Thomas - Defensive Tackle, North Carolina
Monster interior lineman relies heavily on the bull rush. Needs to work on technique and hands but an imposing presence.
Round Three, Pick No. 92
Austen Lane - Defensive End, Murray State
Very athletic, can grow into the position quickly. Needs to improve leverage and hands but edge speed is there to be an effective pass rusher.
Round Five, Pick No. 134
Jordan Shipley - Wide Receiver, University of Texas
Good fundamentals. Improves his chances being reunited with roommate McCoy.
Round Five, Pick No. 146
Marshall Newhouse - Offensive Guard, Texas Christian University
Round Five, Pick No. 160
Kurt Coleman - Strong Safety, The Ohio State University
Great instincts and good speed and hops. A bit undersized but has all the other tools.
Round Six, Pick No. 177
Nolan Carroll - Cornerback, University of Maryland
Round Six, Pick No. 186
Charles Scott - Running Back, Louisiana State University
Big bruising back, good complement to the quicker and lighter backs in the Browns stable.
