Dan Jeremiah would love this Browns draft. I think Breeland is completely overrated. He reminds me of Shareece Wright and I wouldn't take him any earlier than he went.
Watkins is so tempting but then I remember he'd be the #2 WR and 3rd to 4th option on offense and likely be prompted to return kicks. I guess it depends how high they are on Hoyer. If they think he's an NFL starter then absolutely, load up on weapons, if not, they better take a QB early.

Where do you see Crichton fitting the Packers defense?
I think he's athletic enough to stand up. Usually there are concerns about whether or not some pass rushers can stand up in a 3-4, but those are typically unfounded; look at Nick Perry, Ryan Kerrigan, Tamba Hali, Brandon Graham, etc. A good rusher is a good rusher. Last year we saw that with Matthews/Perry hurt, the Packers were forced to rely on guys like Mike Neal too much, so I think they should consider some additional rushers, especially with the value being solid there.
The Dolphins are already overloaded with defensive ends (Barr was an edge rusher in Los Angeles). Also, what am I missing with Dontae Johnson? I never heard of him (and my draft board goes to 200). But this is generallly a good mock.
Barr is a rusher, but I was thinking about how the Dolphins tried to add Philip Wheeler for that rush linebacker role and think Barr would make sense for that reason. I don't see him as a defensive end regardless of scheme, 3-4 ROLB or 4-3 SLB.
Johnson is a much better prospect than David Amerson was last year. More physical, much better tackler, more natural coverage skills. I think he could play CB or FS. Had him as a 2nd-3rd before the Combine, then he did a great job there as well.
I'm loving it for the Rams but I have a real hard time believing Hageman will drop all the way to the middle of the 2nd round.
Stranger things, I guess have happened though!!
Hageman has a ton of concerns regarding consistency/motor, leverage, character, intelligence, etc. that make me feel like he's one of the most likely prospects to bust. Still worth looking into that late in the draft though.
Dallas won't take a LB in round 1. That pick will be a DT or DE.
The only value at either of those positions which I think would be comparable would be Louis Nix, but I'm not sure that's the type of defense he'd fit best in. As you can see, I'm not as high on guys like Jernigan and Ealy as most. This is a deep year for free-agent defensive linemen as well.
There are still Cyrus Kuondijo fans out there? Interesting.
I'm not too worried about anything he did at the Combine, if you can hold down the blindside in the SEC for a couple years, relegating DJ Fluker to the right side, you should be a possible first or second-day pick. Not sure how the medical will affect his stock, but he's a massive, aggressive guy who can mirror, anchor, punch. A little bit sloppy at times, but relatively new to tackle. There also aren't very many good second-day tackle candidates in this class, so that should limit his slide a bit.
I really like the Zack Martin pick for Baltimore. He could play left guard or right tackle depending on where the team feels Osemele fits best. Swanson is probably a reach that high at this point though and I don't see the Ravens going with another young center. I'm fully expecting a wide receiver to be taken in the top two rounds and after getting Martin at 17 Matthews would be perfect at 48. Robinson or Moncrief wouldn't be bad either, maybe even Landry.
I'll repeat what I've said to others, Cleveland will trade up with the Rams to get their QB, doing another Weedon will cut ticket sales in half for the Browns as their fans will riot if they went this route. Never going to happen.
The Rams will trade with somebody, they can go back as far as #5 and still get a superb LT if not Robinson then Matthews.
I think Beckham Jr might get looked at more than Lee for the Jets.
As for round 2, if they resign Calvin Pace....add along with Coples still there and Barnes returning from ACL and OLB becomes something to address in day 3. If David Yankey is there, I am starting to have more and more of a hunch we are taking a guard/offensive tackle in the 1st 2 rounds.
