It didn't take much longer for the readers to address the quarterback position, after having picked up Sammy Watkins with the Browns first pick. Following a very close race between Derek Carr at No. 26 overall and Jimmy Garoppolo at No. 35, Carr ultimately finished with the most votes of the entire field.
In order to avoid back-to-back selections of QB, which understandably had no momentum in the polls, the next highest voted player for the team's first pick in the second round was OG David Yankey, who brought in almost double the votes of the next closest candidate at that spot.
So after two rounds, here's how the Browns' draft looks according to the Dawgs By Nature community polls:
No. 4: WR Sammy Watkins - No. 26: QB Derek Carr - No. 35: OG David Yankey
Now we move on to the third. Here's a refresher for those that may have missed the first post:
During this final week leading up to the big day, we're going to go through all seven rounds and the community will make selections for each of the 10 Cleveland Browns draft picks this year. How it will work:
- (1) Vote for the prospect you personally believe will be the best selection at that given spot for the Browns.
- (2) Debate the options in the comments below.
- (3) Leave suggestions for realistically viable prospects for the next round.
- (4) "Rec" and reply to comments with prospects that you agree would make for a great selection at that next spot.
- (5) Wait for the post on the next round/pick and do the process again.
Keep in mind, you are free to use whatever draft philosophy you think is best for the Browns. But majority rules in this mock draft.
Note: This is an all-round mock draft for the Browns, so even if you didn't like the previous selection, it could still influence who think is best for them at the next spot.
Also, we won't be making the picks for any other team, so each successive selection is even more speculative. When you make suggestions for prospects that you think would be great picks in any given round, if there's consensus that player is rated much higher than where you suggested, be prepared to justify why think he'll fall that far and why the Browns should ignore those same issues.
The Browns' next two picks at No. 71 and 83 will be decided over the next 24 hours through the poll below.
Vote for your ideal pick, defend your selection in the comments below, and feel free to start leaving suggestions for prospects you'd like to see on the ballot for the fourth-rounders, picks No. 106 and 127.
