Rd 1 1 Josh Allen

The Browns need to take a QB here and I believe that Allen should be the pick because he has the highest upside because of his arm strength, mobility, and has good size. I also believe he is a risky prospect but the Browns need to take the QB who will have the best NFL career not a QB who is deemed a “safe” pick or who had the best college stats. I understand that Allen’s accuracy is a concern but I believe even if he doesn’t throw in the 60s he will still be able to win in the NFL. Baker Mayfield will probably be the pick like I predicted in January but I think in 5 years there will be another QB the Browns should have taken but hopefully I'm wrong. 
Rd 1 4 Minkah Fitzpatrick

I like Fitzpatrick a lot and believe he is who the Browns should target with their second pick. The Browns need more speed in the secondary and have had problems covering TEs the past several seasons. Fitzpatrick also brings much needed leadership to the defense. Try to trade down a few picks here maybe and still get Fitzpatrick because I know 4 does seem early for him but he fits the Browns well I believe.

Rd 2 33 Nick Chubb

Round 2 is where you can find good value for a RB. I believe Chubb would be a good fit for the Browns because he split carries in college with Sony Michel and did well in that role. With the Browns he would split time with Duke Johnson and Carlos Hyde for at least a year. Chubb could be the feature back in year 2 or 3.

Rd 2 35 DJ Chark

There are a lot of different directions the Browns could go with this pick. A player I like is DJ Chark. The Browns have needed WRs for years and I think Chark could be a solid number 2 or 3 WR. Josh Gordon is a huge question mark as always, and Corey Coleman has been terrible thus far. Therefore, more WRs are needed.

Rd 2 64 Mark Andrews

A TE? Yes the Browns did draft Njoku last year and signed Fales in free agency and still have Telfer and DeValve but I believe Andrews will be really good and is the best out of the 4 players I just mentioned. Njoku did not impress me as a rookie and I could see him having an Eric Ebron like career, full of potential but will disappoint fans with drops. I'm not ready to give up on Njoku I just think in 4 years we’ll be saying he did not live up to 1st round expectations. Telfer will be cut. Fales signing was shocking and I don’t think he'll have a big role. DeValve is an okay backup. Andrews impressed me every time I watched Baker Mayfield and I think the Browns would regret passing on him when looking back on this draft in 4 years.

Rd 4 114 Shaquem Griffin

The Browns could use some linebacker depth. Also special teams tackling has been horrendous the last two seasons so Griffin could possibly help there because of his speed.

Rd 5 150 Jamarco Jones

OL depth is needed. I have no faith in Coleman or Drango at LT. The Browns need to add more competition at this position.

Rd 6 175 Shaun Dion Hamilton

As mentioned before LB depth is needed and special teams needs a lot of help.

Rd 6 188 Lowell Lotulelei

Lotulelei may not make the team but he does have potential and could provide depth. Shelton got traded so a DT is needed for depth.
