Last month, Luke took a tour of mock drafts around the Web, so I thought I'd do a quick roundup today. Neither Todd McShay or Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN has updated their mock since Luke's post.
The Huddle Report - Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State Comment: Do the Browns need a cornerback after signing Hank Poteat Tuesday night? Also, is pick No. 5 too high for a player who ran so poorly at the NFL Scouting Combine?
Walter Football - Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas Comment: A contingent of Browns officials are going to Texas next week to work out Orakpo. There, they'll find out if he can move to 3-4 rush linebacker or if he's strictly a 4-3 defensive end. Some people are beginning to think the latter.
Football Burrito - Rey Maualuga, MLB, Southern California Comment: I love Maualuga, but this is way too high for him to go in the draft. Mostly I included this site because I like to eat burritos.
Sporting News - Matt Stafford, QB, Georgia Comment: Really? Someone got paid to make that prognostication? Really?
Rob Rang, CBS Sports - BJ Raji, DT, Boston College Comment: This is a reasonable choice if he's there and the Browns decide to do something with Shaun Rogers. Otherwise, the Browns have much greater needs.
Chad Reuter, CBS Sports - Orakpo Comment: This is fairly popular, especially when you get to the less-known sites. In round two, Reuter gives the Browns DJ Moore, CB, Vanderbilt and apparently forgot about the Browns' second second rounder. D'oh! Oh, and he screwed up other parts of the second round draft order. Double d'oh!
Draft Countdown - Orakpo Comment: Go figure. In the second, Scott Wright gives us Donald Brown, RB, Connecticut and Jared Cook, TE, South Carolina. As I noted last night, I doubt the Browns take a second-round tight end. I do like Brown, however.
Mocking the Draft - Everette Brown, DE/OLB, Florida State Comment: This is my site, so check it out! Also, I like Brown better than Orakpo for the Browns. In the second round, I gave Cleveland LeSean McCoy, RB, Pittsburgh and Mike Mickens, CB, Cincinnati. They just seemed to fit best while I was putting the mock together.
So, there are several mock drafts. Who would you like the Browns to select with picks 5, 36 and 50? Tell us, and tear up my picks, in the comments!
