SB Nation Mock Draft: Dawgs By Nature Selects DE Adrian Clayborn at No. 37

The annual SB Nation Writers Mock Draft has entered the second round over at Mocking the Draft, and after getting Marcell Dareus in the first round, I thought long and hard about what position to go after in round two...

With the 37th overall pick in the 2011 SB Nation NFL Mock Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected Adrian Clayborn, defensive end, Iowa.

No. 6


Pick by Dawgs By Nature

Adrian Clayborn
Defensive End


Why the selection? Find out after the jump...

After grabbing DT Marcell Dareus in the first round, DE Adrian Clayborn is the perfect type of pass rusher to get in the second round to make Cleveland's defensive line depth issues disappear in a flash. Clayborn has fallen pretty significantly from his original projected value in mock drafts, so this marks the second steal in a row for the Browns. Through the rest of the draft, Cleveland would have the luxury of taking chances on other prospects since other holes, such as safety and depth on the offensive line, can be addressed through free agency.
