Cleveland Browns Mock Draft Roundup 1.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Cleveland Browns Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Cleveland Browns from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Cleveland Browns, check out our 2021 Cleveland Browns Mock Draft Database.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Browns:
Pro Football Network - DiCecco (6/7)
15) Cleveland Browns: Carlos Basham, EDGE Wake Forest
Basham boasts tantalizing size (6'5", 275) and athleticism, and is coming off a career season with 11 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. Should Basham replicate his junior production in 2020, there is a strong possibility he doesn't fall this far next April.
Fox Sports - McIntyre (6/7)
23. Cleveland Browns -- Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State
Last year, everyone bought the Browns. I passed. Now, I'm all in after they got Baker Mayfield protection. I anticipate issues at linebacker, but the back end of the defense matters more.
Walter Football (5/19)
19. Cleveland Browns: Joe Tryon, DE, Washington
The Browns may lose Olivier Vernon soon, so they'll need to find another edge rusher to complement Myles Garrett.
Joe Tryon came out of nowhere to have a breakout 2019 campaign. He has a nice frame (6-5, 262) and tons of upside to be an impactful edge rusher in the NFL.
CBS Sports - Edwards (5/12)
19. Cleveland Browns: Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
Cleveland did a great job of filling its roster with viable candidates at each position. However, there are still positions in need of an upgrade. Linebacker is one. Moses is a bit of an unknown coming off an injury, but if he bounces back at a high level, he warrants first-round consideration.
CBS Sports - Trapasso (5/4)
13. Cleveland Browns: Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson
With Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry getting close to 30 -- by 2021 -- the Browns could dip back into the receiver well with Ross, who burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2018 at Clemson.
PFF - Renner (4/30)
16. Cleveland Browns -- WR Jaylen Waddle, Alabama
Waddle hasn't played much the past two seasons -- only 729 snaps over that span -- but he's produced whenever he has been thrust in. On 40 targets last season, Waddle averaged 12.2 yards after the catch per reception and had a perfect 158.3 passer rating when targeted. He's got NFL-level juice.
San Diego Union Tribune (4/29)
16. Cleveland (33/1) -- Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
A season-ending knee injury during fall camp likely kept Moses from being the first linebacker selected in this year's draft.
SI - Hanson (4/27)
16. Cleveland Browns: Seth Williams, WR, Auburn
If selected by the Browns, Williams (6' 3", 224 pounds) would give Baker Mayfield a big-bodied receiver to complement smaller wideouts Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. The physical wideout had a breakout season (59/830/8) despite playing with a freshman quarterback, and has averaged 17.3 yards per reception in the first two seasons of his collegiate career.
Bleacher Report - Miller (4/27)
14. Cleveland Browns -- DL Marvin Wilson, Florida State
The Browns have an offensive line and weapons on offense to go along with a defense loaded with first-rounders at cornerback and edge-rusher. Now, it's time to build the middle of the field.
Marvin Wilson can play anywhere between the tackles and do it at a high level. The Browns can unleash him as a 3-technique, where he'll wreak havoc and free up Myles Garrett and a group of speedy linebackers to make plays.
SB Nation - Kadar (4/27)
17. Cleveland Browns: Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama
This one is a little bit of a leap -- which is saying something about a mock draft that is coming out a year before the actual draft. The Browns have one of the most expensive wide receiver units in the NFL with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. Beckham was rumored in trade talks last year and Landry is due a combined $31 million in 2021 and 2022. Something may have to give.
The Athletic - Brugler (4/27)
16. Cleveland Browns -- Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama
A projected top-10 pick this past season, Moses missed the 2019 season with a torn ACL. But if he stays healthy in 2020 and looks like the same player post-injury, his rangy athleticism and versatile awareness will land in him in the first round.
