The Cleveland Browns did not move back into the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft but there are still plenty of options avilable on Day 2.
John Dorsey did not move back into the first round of the draft Thursday. Good thing is there are plenty of players still available that could interest the Cleveland Browns on Friday.
Only a couple defensive backs went in the first round of the draft which leaves plenty available in the second and third rounds. Byron Murphy and Greedy Williams highlight the remaining corners, but may be unavailable unless the Browns move up. Rock Ya-Sin is also another cornerback that could interest the Browns, but again a trade up would most likely be necessary. An interesting target is Michigan State’s Justin Layne. Layne has been connected to the Browns for some time now and even got the fanbase excited with this tweet.
Sure it may be pandering, but Layne is a good cornerback prospect that Cleveland would be wise to consider.
As just mentioned above, the Cleveland Browns defensive line needs depth. This leads to the possibility that Ohio State’s Dre’Mont Jones could be on the Browns radar. Sheldon Richardson was signed to a two-year deal this past offseason but is not a longterm solution. Adding Jones would also provide depth past Sheldon Richardson and Larry Ogunjobi. This would allow proper rotations to be made and insurance in case of injury.
Ole Miss’ Greg Little would be an interesting addition to the Browns offensive line. It is well known that the offensive tackles on the roster are not necessarily of the best quality. Sure Greg Robinson was an adequate spot starter after Desmond Harrison proved unplayable and Chris Hubbard held his own next to one of the best guards in football. If the Browns were to select Little it would help provide a bit more clarity to a position group that is anything but settled.
