Browns' Mock Drafts

With the NFL draft just a few weeks away, The Orange and Brown Report has a "Mock Draft Muncher" showing the projected Browns' #1 pick in roughly 50 different mock drafts. Several of the names have been in the mix for quite some time, while others have become more prominent in recent weeks.

Old favorites Haloti Ngata, Chad Greenway, DeMeco Ryans, Manny Lawson and Tamba Hali are named in several mock drafts, but a handful of Florida State Seminoles now feature prominently as well. Brodrick Bunkley (DT) and teammates Kamerion Wimbley (DE) and Ernie Sims (OLB) are identified by a number of mock drafts as possible #1 picks for the Pumpkin Heads.

Despite the Browns' efforts to bolster the offensive line through free agency, several drafts show them taking an offensive linemen with their first pick. If the Browns do pick an offensive linemen, the mock drafts suggest that it will either be Marcus McNeill or Winston Justice.

Running back DeAngelo Williams is identified as a possibility by two mock drafts. Earlier on, there had been some chatter that if they wanted a running back, the Browns might take USC's Lendale White, but his stock has been dropping faster than General Motors.
