Cleveland Browns 2024 Mock Draft

This will be the final year the Cleveland Browns will be without a first-rounder from the Deshaun Watson trade. Regardless, I know one thing: this team is ready to reload after a surprisingly solid season. Despite the injury bug, they Flacco’d into the playoffs only to be heartbroken by the Houston Texans.

Where are their main areas of need? Right off the bat, we know they need some help at tackle. Also, Watson will need more weapons downfield. Cleveland would be smart to add some depth at their RB position to tag team with Nick Chubb post-injury. As far as defense goes, keeping this unit stout is ideal.

Cleveland Browns 2024 Mock Draft

2-54: Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Outside of Amari Cooper, the remainder of the receiving corps is a little up in the air. Even the recent addition of Jerry Jeudy does not quite cut it. Securing another target could open the playbook for Stefanski. Not only are Mitchell’s hands ultra-reliable, but his frame is ideal for an NFL pass-catcher. Hopefully, this would breathe some life into the offense when Watson returns from injury.

3-85: Michael Hall Jr, DI, Ohio State

The catch-22 about the Buckeye is his middling size up against his versatility. He is stuck in between the size of a defensive end and a defensive tackle; nevertheless, he has played snaps in multiple positions. With a little weight management and development, he should be a reliable force who can mold into one positional group. His strength and long arms should not be ignored. A gamble in the 3rd round? Maybe, but Hall Jr.’s ceiling outweighs his negatives.

5-155 (via Philadelphia): Jaheim Bell, TE, FSU

Bell had a fantastic Combine between his 4.61 40 and a top-scoring burst drill. He would come in as a nice complement to David Njoku and can be used in a number of ways: HB, FB, TE. Imagine adding Jerry Juedy, Adonai Mitchell, and Jaheim Bell to this offense! Cleveland would have to get a little lucky with him falling this far, but it could happen.

6-205 (via Baltimore): Austin Booker, EDGE, Kansas

It seems probable that Za’Darius Smith is a goner based on their cap situation and his determination to test his value in free agency. Booker recorded eight sacks in his first year at Kansas last season. The edge rusher did a wonderful job adding weight, yet maintaining his serviceable speed. You can never have too many athletic linebackers and this would be a fun addition for Cleveland’s defense.

7-230 (via Atlanta): Jarvis Brownlee Jr., CB, Louisville

Brownlee Jr. has asserted himself as a physical corner with a good understanding of routes. His style of play sets him up to notch some INT’s.
