Browns Mock Draft: Cleveland Takes Baker Mayfield First

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

They should both be chosen in the middle to late first round.

The 2018 NFL Draft could see as many as six quarterbacks could be drafted in the first round with several teams having an urgent need at the position.

"While the Browns plan to stay put at No. 1, they've had a lot of conversations about the No. 4 pick, sources tell me and @RapSheet".

This year, quarterbacks are all on the rise with four quarterbacks set to be taken within the first several selections and another one or even two could be selected in the first round.

The Eagles traded up with the Browns in 2016 to get their quarterback in Carson Wentz.

Buffalo has no one closely resembling a franchise quarterback after trading Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland last month.

Wyche said the Browns know who they're going to pick at No. 1, and that they haven't had much trade interest in the pick. "Most teams are very comfortable with Baker and his personality".

He would relish it and is hopeful the Cleveland Browns view him as the top quarterback in this year's class. He was taken 10 picks after Purdue quarterback Bob Griese, one of eight Hall of Famers taken in that draft, which lasted 17 rounds. We don't know in which direction the New York Giants are leaning at two. Maybe the Browns want Darnold to shoot up draft boards, and there is no better way to do that than for them to convince others that they don't like him. And the consensus among draft analysts is that Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is the premier player in this year's draft, regardless of position.

After one season in Jacksonville, Howard signed with the Packers and led the National Football League in punt return yards (875) and punt return touchdowns (3) in 1996. Nelson would likely be an immediate replacement for Justin Pugh and would suit Gettleman's focus on building from the trenches. In exchange for the Patriots' 31st-overall pick, they get No. 40 overall No. 148 overall from Pittsburgh. In fact, they are now discussing trade options for that one.

4th overall pick: Bradley Chubb- Defensive End, North Carolina State- The Browns will take Chubb to pair up with Myles Garrett.

The Jaguars, who lost the AFC championship game, got Pro Bowl linebacker Telvin Smith (fifth round, 2014) on Day 3 of the draft.

Kyle Shanahan is all too aware of the importance of matchups and Derwin James is a matchup weapon. "Whatever happens, happens. I'm looking forward to the challenge of being in the NFL, I'm looking forward to getting with my teammates and new coaching staff and putting in the hours to start winning football games because that's really what it's all about". Do they think they can get a lineman that can play immediately and help be a tough run blocker for this dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, or do they believe that drafting a receiver like Christian Kirk or Courtland Sutton is the best move?
