Needs of Browns NFL Draft
- Defensive line: Myles Garrett totaled 12 sacks last season, further consolidating himself as one of the best passing throwers in the game. The Browns should prioritize landing from another defensive end or tackle to give opposing quarterbacks even more nightmares.
- Linebacker: If Cleveland wants a mix of rushing passing and covering ability, then he can lean more toward a linebacker than a defensive lineman. This hunt group could use an upgrade.
- Wide receiver: Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry are a talented tandem, but the Browns should consider adding a wide receiver who can develop as Baker Mayfield climaxes.
