McShay's Mock Draft 5.0: Browns Go Johnny Manziel, Cody Latimer

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN's Todd McShay released his fifth mock draft today. Let's take a look at how McShay's picks have gone for Cleveland in his first four attempts:

McShay 1.0: QB Derek Carr (No. 6), WR Jordan Matthew (No. 23)
McShay 2.0: QB Blake Bortles (No. 4), WR Davante Adams (No. 26)
McShay 3.0: QB Johnny Manziel (No. 4), WR Brandin Cooks (No. 26)
McShay 4.0: QB Blake Bortles (No. 4), WR Kelvin Benjamin (No. 26), CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste (No. 35)

McShay has been going quarterback-wide receiver for the Browns so far. Here is how McShay's mock draft started off, prior to Cleveland being on the clock at No. 4 overall, which ended up being the same as what Kiper had in his most recent mock draft:

No. 1 - Houston: DE Jadeveon Clowney
No. 2 - St. Louis: OT Greg Robinson
No. 3 - Jacksonville: WR Sammy Watkins

McShay jumped back on the Manziel bandwagon for the Browns at No. 4 overall:

No. 4 - Cleveland: QB Johnny Manziel

I'm not sold on this one, but I keep hearing that Manziel could go early, and Cleveland is a logical landing spot given its need at QB. He's a leap-of-faith pick, as I've said many times in the past few months; he has a rare ability to create, but the team that takes him must be confident that he'll do what he needs to on and off the field to win from the pocket and that he'll be able to stay healthy long term, given his playing style.

At No. 26 overall, McShay mocked wide receiver Cody Latimer going to the Browns:

No. 26 - Cleveland: WR Cody Latimer

The Browns got their QB at No. 4 in Manziel, and now they'll add a weapon for him to throw to opposite Josh Gordon. I was really impressed with Latimer's tape when I finally got the chance to study him recently, and he's a really good fit for an offense like Cleveland's that figures to incorporate some West Coast principles under new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. He has good size, instincts, run-after-catch ability and toughness.

What do you think of McShay's picks for Cleveland?
