Front Office Takeover (Continued)! Cleveland Browns 2018 NFL Draft

The night is finally here, it is April 26th, 2018.  With the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select Saquon Barkley, running back, Penn State University. When the fourth pick arrives, we strike a deal with the Arizona Cardinals allowing them to jump from #15 to fourth overall; in this trade we receive the Cardinals 1st (15), 2nd (47), 3rd (79) along with the Cardinals 2019 and 2020 first round pick. This trade is comparable to the Redskins and Rams trade, allowing Washington to select Robert Griffin III. The trade gives us four selections in the 2nd round now, as well as two additional 1st round picks for the next two drafts (2019 and 2020) to continue to bolster our roster with blue-chip players. Time for the remaining picks Rounds 1 through 3 (6 picks):

  • Round 1 (15th from Cardinals) OT Kolton Miller from UCLA – Insurance just in case Joe Thomas retires or gets injured again.
  • Round 2 (33rd) CB Jaire Alexander Louisville – You can never have too many good corners.
  • Round 2 (35th) WR D.J. Moore Maryland – Adding a physical, quick wide receiver to help add depth, plus he can push or surpass Corey Coleman.
  • Round 2 (47th from Cardinals) S Justin Reid Stanford – He played free safety, strong safety and lined up in man coverage vs. wide receivers and tight ends. This gives Greg Williams great flexibility having Jabrill Peppers as the other safety.
  • Round 2 (63rd) DT Harrison Phillips Stanford – More interior pass rush and great run stopper to improve upon the already top 10 run defense.
  • Round 3 (79th from Cardinals) QB Luke Falk Washington State – QB prospect with great anticipation, timing, and touch. After sitting behind Tyrod Taylor for 2 to 3 years he could be ready to take over as starter or be moved in a trade.

This concludes what I would do if I oversaw the Cleveland Browns war room, although now I finally have faith in the Browns front office. The Browns are finally turning it around thanks to their great GM John Dorsey. They will be contenders for years to come and just as I predicted in my offseason preview, this offseason will completely change the landscape of the NFL.
