Kiper gives Browns a surprise pick in his latest Mock Draft

46

Mel Kiper's second mock draft (Insider only) has the Browns take Wisconsin DE J.J. Watt with their sixth pick, which would be quite a reach based on the other mock drafts I've been seeing. He may be moving up people's boards, and things can certainly change a lot with the combine and pro days coming up, but most mock drafts I've seen have Watt being picked in the high teens or 20's. He certainly fits an area of need for the Browns, but Kiper has the Browns picking him over other defensive lineman like Marcel Darius and Robert Quinn as well as CB's Patrick Peterson and Prince Amukamara. I remember Watt wrecking havok on the Buckeyes in Wisconsin's win over OSU, so I've been interested in him ever since that game. We'll have to see if the Browns show much interest in him and how his workouts compare to the other lineman projected to go high in the first round. Kiper is either reaching or he's way ahead of the curve on this one.
