2014 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Browns Select a Tight End


It's never too early to start thinking about the 2014 NFL Draft, right? Of course everyone knows it is technically premature to start thinking about next year, but it's still a fun discussion.

Dan Kadar from Mocking the Draft put together an early look at next year's class. His draft position was based on the offseason SB Nation Power Rankings that were held, which means the Browns ended up with the No. 7 overall pick. With that slot, Kadar had the Browns going with a tight end to support head coach Rob Chudzinski's need for a high-caliber player at the position:

7. Cleveland Browns: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

When the Browns opted out of the fourth and fifth rounds of the draft this year, it meant the team was stuck with Jordan Cameron or Kellen Davis as their starting tight end. Rob Chudzinkski loves tight ends and the Browns don't have a good one. Seferian-Jenkins has had some off-field troubles but on the field he's a superstar. He's Antonio Gates and Jimmy Graham wrapped into one.

A combination between Gates and Graham? I'd kill for that. Matthew Fairburn, who is Kadar's colleague at Mocking the Draft, also put out a 2014 NFL Mock Draft, and he had the Browns going with LB C.J. Mosley, not to be confused with the veteran defensive end the Browns had on their roster a few years ago.

What are your thoughts on the premature mock drafts for 2014?
