Over at Mocking the Draft I participated in a mock where each team had a representative from an SB nation blog. Here is who I got the Browns...
1. Joe Haden, CB, Florida
The Browns secondary is attrocious. Joe Haden is the best DB right now and is a pretty good value at 7. Sounds like a pretty good pick, right? With Joe Haden and Eric Wright, the Browns have two good starting corners.
2. Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech
With Dez Bryant, Golden Tate, and Damian Williams gone, Thomas is definitely the best receiver left. Thomas is way better than Massoquoi and Robiskie out of college. He is the top blocking receiver in the draft and he is a great big-play threat. He is also very big (6'3 230) and has great speed for his size. His only downsides are his lack of production because of the run heavy offense he played in and his rawness as a route runner. Thomas would probably step in as our #1 receiver.

3a. Ciron Black, T/G, LSU
At this point, people have called Black overrated for so long that he has become underrated. Of course, he can't pass protect good enough to play LT, but he is a mauler and could excel at right tackle or guard. He has ideal size for a right tackle (6'5 330) and would most likely start for us by Week 3.

3b. Major Wright, FS/SS, Florida
It's no secret that the Browns secondary is bad. With Joe Haden as my first pick, I decided to take a safety to assist the secondary even more. If Brodney Pool is back, that is good, but he won't last much longer with all the concussions. Let me remind you guys that Mike Furrey started at safety this year for us. Mike Furrey. Major Wright is a brutal hitter that still needs a little work in coverage but he has great potential. Plus, wouldn't it be cool to have two DBs named Wright?(kidding.) If Pool retires, Wright will start immediately.

4. John Jerry, G, Ole Miss
Already having Ciron Black, some of you may question this pick. However, Jerry is a good value here and can probably be a starter in this league. He is very strong and has excelled at right tackle in college but will still have to make the shift to guard in the NFL. He is a dominant run blocker and is pretty good in pass protection as a guard. He and Ciron Black could possibly fill in the only holes on the Browns already young Offensive line.
5a. Jason Worilds, DE/OLB, Virginia Tech
Worilds is a good pass rushing DE that will have to swich to 3-4 OLB in the pros. His speed off the edge is one of his best attributes. The Browns have a pretty good group of young OLBs, but there is still room for improvement.

5b. Walter Thurmond, CB/FS, Oregon
Before his season-ending injury, many people thought that Thurmond would be a better prospect than former teammate Jairus Byrd. A lot of draft gurus even considered Thurmond the top CB in this class. If he ends up recovering fine, I think this would be a steal.
5c. Andrew Quarless, TE, Penn State
Tight end is a pretty big need for the Browns. Quinn is a QB that likes to throw to TEs. But with tight ends like Gresham, Gronkowski, and Dickson all going early I had to wait and draft a TE later. Quarless has the skills necessary to be succesful in the NFL, he just needs to put it all together. He may have small character concerns, but nothing big.
6a. Blair White, WR, Michigan State
White is not a flashy receiver. He won't wow you with his 40 time, vertical jump, size. But he is one of the those receivers that just knows how to get open. I think he will be a nice 3rd down or slot receiver that will be a QB's good friend.

6b. Clifton Geathers, DT/DE, South Carolina
A surprise to skip his senior year, Geathers has potential that matches his size. Character issues may cause him to drop.
7. Brandon Deaderick, DE, Alabama
Deaderick had a very disappointing season, but I don't blame him; He got shot in the arm and missed no time! Deaderick is said to be a hard worker and a great fit for a 3-4 defense.
