Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller has released his seven round mock draft and has some interesting picks for the Cleveland Browns.
10th: Tristan Wirfs, OT Iowa
This seems like a very popular pick at 10. Many have mocked Tristan Wirfs to the Browns at 10. The reason? The Cleveland Browns desperately need offensive line help. Cleveland taking Tristan Wirfs would provide Baker Mayfield with some much needed protection.
41st: Ashtyn Davis, S California
Another position of need is safety. Damarious Randall is most likely gone and the other options are less than inspiring. Drafting Ashtyn Davis makes a ton of sense. This is another selection that has been gaining traction as of late. Dane Brugler previously had Davis to Cleveland at 41 in an earlier mock.
74th: Curtis Weaver, EDGE Boise State
Even if the Browns starting defensive line remains intact they still need help. There is not a lot once you get past the starting group of Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi, Sheldon Richardson, and Olivier Vernon. Vernon may also be on the way out which would create a need for a starter. Curtis Weaver could step in and replace Vernon opposite of Garrett if the team does indeed move on from the eight-year veteran.
90th: Albert Okwuegbunam, TE Missouri
Cleveland’s new offense needs tight ends and they really don’t have one a the moment. David Njoku is a tight end in name only which puts the Browns in a position to draft a tight end. Albert Okwuegbunam has the ability to block that Njoku simply doesn’t have. Adding Okwuegbunam into the mix at the tight end position should make the offensive transition a bit easier.
112th: Solomon Kindley, OL Georgia
Joel Bitonio and JC Tretter have the left guard and center positions on lock down. With Cleveland addressing the tackle position at 10 with Tristan Wirfs, the Browns look to find someone to line up on the right side of Tretter in Solomon Kindley. Wyatt Teller performed adequately in his limited time, but there is still room for an upgrade.
118th: Carter Coughlin, EDGE Minnesota
Taking Carter Coughlin goes along with needing depth on the defensive line. Cleveland needs depth in the worst way and this should help in that area.
245th: Kamal Martin, LB Minnesota
Kamal Martin could give the Browns depth at the linebacker position. The future of Joe Schobert is unclear, the team may move on from Christian Kirksey and there are a collection of other guys on the roster. Mack Wilson and Sione Takitaki were rookies last season, but bringing in more players to compete for playing time cold bring out the best in everyone.
