There is a love/hate relationship with mock drafts. Nobody really likes them, but we click on every single mock draft that comes our way. This mock draft features a couple trades, a couple head-scratchers, a few no-brainers, and everything in between.
This mock is what I would think happens. At least, something along those lines. It’s more to give you an idea of where teams are looking position-wise. For the picks outside of the box, it’s to help you look at things from a different point of view. It is focused more on fit rather than need. So a team might take “Player A” because that player helps them more than reaching for a need.
The Dallas Cowboys trade the 28th and 60th overall picks to the Tennessee Titans for the 18th overall pick.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade the 19th, 84th and 125th overall picks to the Arizona Cardinals for the 13th overall pick.
1. Cleveland Browns – Myles Garrett, Edge Defender, Texas A&M
Garrett has a lot more flaws than the media will lead you to believe. I don’t think he’s this can’t-miss prospect that he’s being made out to be. He’s a good player. He’s incredibly explosive and covers a lot of ground. His effort is questionable, and his moves leave something to be desired. But in a sport where potential matters, Garrett is the pick. If the Browns believe in their quarterback, they should take him here. Garrett will slide into a role opposite Jamie Collins, and that should instantly give the Browns one heck of an athletic pass rushing duo.
