Todd McShay of ESPN released his third mock draft of the year last week, and this time it is a two-round mock draft. To compare, here is who he had the Cleveland Browns taking in his first two mock drafts, which were only one round each:
McShay 1.0: WR Tee Higgins
McShay 2.0: OT Josh Jones
McShay’s last mock draft was way back in early February, and a lot has changed since then, both in the NFL world and the actual world. In the NFL, though, the Combine took place, and more team needs were filled via free agency. At No. 10 overall, McShay still likes Cleveland drafting a left tackle, but this time it is Jedrick Wills Jr, as he has Jones falling all the way to No. 26:
No. 10: Cleveland Browns - OT Jedrick Wills Jr., Alabama - “The Browns brought in Jack Conklin in free agency, but they still need a left tackle opposite the former Titan. Wills played the right side at Alabama, but he is versatile enough to make the transition and continue Cleveland’s process in getting Baker Mayfield more protection. Louisville’s Mekhi Becton is another tackle to watch here.”
In the second round, McShay has Cleveland taking a safety to try to bolster a group that is still very patchwork at this point:
No. 41: Cleveland Browns - S Grant Delpit, LSU - “Free agent Damarious Randall won’t be back, and that Cleveland safety group is lacking. Delpit slid a bit throughout the year, and though he misses his share of tackles, he is a rangy defender over the top with good instincts.”
What would you think of the Browns coming away with Wills and Delpit for their first two picks in the 2020 NFL Draft?
