Defensive players figure to dominate at NFL Draft

So any move by Robinson likely will help net a pick to get back into that round. Presumably, the Browns would do so to take a quarterback after using the first overall pick on Garrett.

"We're going to keep searching", coach Hue Jackson said recently. No, Myles Garrett is the clear cut top overall pick.

Things will be different for Howie Roseman and his front office staff as well, as the decision-makers will have a much better sense of what direction they need to go in for each position, whether it's emphasizing athleticism or size at a position or the fit of a college scheme.

This post is not meant to tell you what each draft guide says. That's the reality of this situation.

The Browns are now led by an analytics-based regime that drafted a promising 2016 class, and with the impending draft being crucial to the immediate and future success of the team, the Browns must draft accordingly to succeed. Many NFL experts had Conley as potentially being a first round draft selection in their mock drafts, including our latest one here at FanSided Conley is described as a defensive back who possesses good size and athleticism. Nothing is more important than getting a franchise QB. Wednesday morning, we'll have an all-Browns roundtable discussion for your reading pleasure, and earlier today, we already posted a bunch of big boards and mock drafts for you to digest.

North Carolina quarterback and Mentor, Ohio native Mitchell Trubisky is widely believed to be the primary target for the Browns in a QB class that has not impressed those around the league this year as being worthy of top-end of the draft consideration. Can the Browns bring him home? The most recent pick came in 1999 when defensive end Lamar King was taken towards the end of the 1999 first round by the Seahawks.

Duke has the longest drought since having a player taken in the second round (Lennie Friedman, 1999) and third round (Anthony Dilweg, 1989).

Lynch said there are certain media members with whom personnel officials like him speak, and because of that they may have some insight into what certain teams are thinking in the run-up to the draft, which begins Thursday.

"I think the discipline out of this building's been excellent", he said.

Couple this with the fact that Deshaun Watson isn't that famous yet, and nobody was wise to the fact that he was asking them questions about himself.

The Browns have made so many trades on draft day over the years. On Sunday I learned a few teams stamp the linebacker as a top 20-prospect and feel that he'll be gone by the middle of Round 1. Again, it's the Jimmy Johnson method.

Whatever happens, the draft is two days away and that alone is a reason for us to be happy in Cleveland. When I talk to teams, I know what they tell me.
