Todd McShay Pegs DE Robert Quinn Going to Cleveland

New, comments

After posting yesterday that Mel Kiper's latest mock draft has the Cleveland Browns going with WR Julio Jones, today we take a look at who Todd McShay now thinks will go to Cleveland: DE Robert Quinn.

It appeared at one point that Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers would be a steal here but concerns about Bowers' injured knee continue to increase. Quinn, meanwhile, is coming off a strong pro day workout, and while he's not as stout against the run he offers significantly more upside than Bowers as a pass rusher. Adding an impact right defensive end like Quinn would be a great start for the Browns as they transition to a 4-3 defense.

Both mock drafts have Patrick Peterson falling past the Browns to No. 7 overall, where the San Francisco 49ers would be getting a steal. I know that Kiper and McShay both addressed needs with their picks (wide receiver and defensive end), but I stick by the fact that I will be really let down if we let the opportunity of a Joe Haden-Patrick Peterson defensive backfield slip away from us. McShay now has Bowers falling all the way down to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
