ClevelandBrowns.com Mock Draft 3.0: Predictions for all 7 of Browns' picks

We've spent all of 2020 guessing what the Browns might do with their first couple of picks in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Now, for a grand finale of sorts, we're doing it for all seven of the team's selections.

Andrew Gribble, Jason Gibbs and Nathan Zegura, for the final time in 2020, are on the clock.

Andrew Gribble

Check out Andrew Gribble's picks for the 2020 NFL Draft first round and all of the Browns' picks

1. Bengals — QB Joe Burrow (LSU)
2. Redskins — DE Chase Young (Ohio State)
3. Lions — CB Jeff Okudah (Ohio State)
4. Giants — OT Tristan Wirfs (Iowa)
5. Dolphins — QB Justin Herbert (Oregon) 
6. Chargers — QB Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama)
7. Panthers — LB Isaiah Simmons (Clemson)
8. Cardinals — OT Andrew Thomas (Georgia)
9. Jaguars — WR Jerry Jeudy (Alabama)
10. BROWNS — OT Jedrick Wills Jr. (Alabama) — I'm done caring about which side of the line he played for the Crimson Tide. Take the best tackle and coach him up. This is about more than 2020.
11. Jets — DT Derrick Brown (Auburn)
12. Raiders — CB CJ Henderson (Florida)
13. 49ers — WR CeeDee Lamb (Oklahoma)
14. Buccaneers — OT Mekhi Becton (Louisville) 
15. Broncos — WR Henry Ruggs III (Alabama)
16. Falcons — DT Javon Kinlaw (South Carolina) 
17. Cowboys — CB A.J. Terrell (Clemson)
18. Dolphins — OT Josh Jones (Houston)
19. Raiders — DE K'Lavon Chaisson
20. Jaguars — LB Patrick Queen (LSU)
21. Eagles — WR Tee Higgins (Clemson)
22. Vikings — DE Yetur Gross-Matos (Penn State)
23. Patriots — QB Jordan Love (Utah State)
24. Saints — WR Justin Jefferson (LSU)
25. Vikings — OT Ezra Cleveland (Boise State)
26. Dolphins — S Xavier McKinney (Alabama)
27. Seahawks — DT Ross Blacklock (TCU)
28. Ravens — S Grant Delpit (LSU)
29. Titans — CB Kristian Fulton (LSU)
30. Packers — LB Kenneth Murray (Oklahoma)
31. 49ers — OT Austin Jackson (USC)
32. Chiefs — DE Zack Baun (Wisconsin)

2nd round

41. S Jeremy Chinn (Southern Illinois) - I just can't wrap my head around the idea of LSU's Grant Delpit, the 2019 Thorpe Award winner, being available at this spot, but there's no shame in landing one of the fastest risers in this year's class.

3rd round

74. DE Darrell Taylor (Tennessee) - NFL.com's Lance Zierlein says he has five-star traits, and that's good enough for me at this point in the draft. Browns get a big-school player to add to the mix at pass rusher.

97. WR Chase Claypool (Notre Dame) - Before the Combine, some thought he might have to work out as a tight end. After posting blazing times and impressing in a number of different areas, Claypool sits as a likely Day 2 selection that would be considered a steal at this spot.

4th round

115. LB Malik Harrison (Ohio State) - The big run-stuffer would bring a different element and skill set to Cleveland's young linebacker room.

6th round

187. CB Lamar Jackson (Nebraska) - Who says there isn't room for two Lamar Jacksons in the AFC North?

7th round

244. C Calvin Throckmorton (Oregon) - It's always good to have as many players as you can with this skill set on the roster. Throckmorton started at least one game at every spot on the offensive line during his college career.

Nathan Zegura

Check out Nathan Zegura's picks for the 2020 NFL Draft first round and all of the Browns' picks

1. Bengals — QB Joe Burrow (LSU)
2. Redskins – DE Chase Young (Ohio State)
3. Lions – CB Jeff Okudah (Ohio State)
4. Giants — OT Tristan Wirfs (Iowa)
5. Dolphins — QB Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama)
6. Chargers – QB Justin Herbert (Oregon)
7. Panthers – DT Derrick Brown (Auburn)
8. Cardinals – LB Isaiah Simmons (Clemson)
9. Jaguars – WR Jerry Jeudy (Alabama)
10. BROWNS – OT Jedrick Wills Jr. (Alabama) The Browns find every team's dream scenario when the best player available also fits their biggest need. Andrew Berry will run to the podium to select an elite tackle, and, in this scenario with the run on QBs, they are able to land Wills, whom many regard as the best tackle in this draft.
11. Jets – OT Andrew Thomas (Georgia)
12. Raiders – WR CeeDee Lamb (Oklahoma)
13. 49ers – WR Henry Ruggs III (Alabama)
14. Buccaneers – OT Mekhi Becton (Louisville)
15. Broncos – WR Justin Jefferson (LSU)
16. Falcons – CB CJ Henderson (Florida)
17. Cowboys – DE K'Lavon Chaisson (LSU)
18. Dolphins – DT Javon Kinlaw (South Carolina)
19. Raiders – CB A.J. Terrell (Clemson)
20. Jaguars – S Xavier McKinney (Alabama)
21. Eagles – WR Denzel Mims (Baylor)
22. Vikings – CB Trevon Diggs (Alabama)
23. Patriots – QB Jordan Love (Utah State)
24. Saints – WR Brandon Aiyuk (Arizona State)
25.. Vikings – WR Tee Higgins (Clemson)
26. Dolphins – OT Josh Jones (Houston)
27. Seahawks – DE Yetur Gross-Matos (Penn State)
28. Ravens – LB Kenneth Murray (Oklahoma)
29. Titans – OT Austin Jackson (USC)
30. Packers – WR Jalen Reagor (TCU)
31. 49ers – OT Ezra Cleveland (Boise State)
32. Chiefs — C Cesar Ruiz (Michigan)

2nd round

41. WR K.J. Hamler (Penn State) – Grant Delpit and Jeremy Chinn go off the board early in my mock, and the Browns are forced into a tougher decision with their second pick. They decide to get an electric playmaker at WR and have that pure speed burner in the mold of Tyreek Hill to add an element of danger to their offense.

3rd round

74. S Ashtyn Davis (California) – With the surprising pick of WR at 41, the Browns turn back to the safety position and snag the former track star in Davis, who projects as a great single-high center fielder type of free safety.

97. S Terrell Burgess (Utah) – Burgess is a great value who can play both safety and the slot/nickel corner for the Browns, who now have really addressed the back-end of their defense for the present and the future.

4th round

115. DE Jabari Zuniga (Florida) – He's a great athlete who plays a very physical style. He is still very young in terms of football experience but is a good ball of clay that you hope can develop into a starter down the road.

6th round

187. TE Thaddeus Moss (LSU) – TE is a critical position in this offense, and Moss is a good blocker who possesses excellent hands in the short area passing game. Plus, Randy Moss at training camp would be a lot of fun.

7th round

244. CB Madre Harper (Southern Illinois) – The Browns didn't get Chinn but land his teammate in Harper, who is a big, rangy corner with speed. Harper is a total sleeper who could end up as a late-round steal in a defense that will value his length.

Jason Gibbs

Check out Jason Gibbs picks for the 2020 NFL Draft first round and all of the Browns' picks

1. Bengals — QB Joe Burrow (LSU)
2. Redskins – DE Chase Young (Ohio State)
3. Lions – CB Jeff Okudah (Ohio State)
4. Giants — OT Tristan Wirfs (Iowa)
5. Dolphins — QB Justin Herbert (Oregon)
6. Chargers – QB Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama)
7. Panthers – LB Isaiah Simmons (Clemson)
8. Cardinals – OT Jedrick Wills Jr. (Alabama)
9. Jaguars – WR Jerry Jeudy (Alabama)
10. BROWNS – OT Andrew Thomas (Georgia) – It just makes too much sense. That's it. Bring the big fella in and let's open up some holes.
11. Jets – OT Mekhi Becton (Louisville)
12. Raiders – WR CeeDee Lamb (Oklahoma)
13. 49ers – DT Derrick Brown (Auburn)
14. Buccaneers – OT Austin Jackson (USC)
15. Broncos – WR Henry Ruggs III (Alabama)
16. Falcons – CB CJ Henderson (Florida)
17. Cowboys – DT Javon Kinlaw (South Carolina)
18. Dolphins – OT Josh Jones (Houston)
19. Raiders – DE K'Lavon Chaisson (LSU)
20. Jaguars – S Xavier McKinney (Alabama)
21. Eagles – WR Justin Jefferson (LSU)
22. Vikings – CB A.J. Terrell (Clemson)
23. Patriots – LB Patrick Queen (LSU)
24. Saints – CB Trevon Diggs (Alabama)
25. Vikings – WR Tee Higgins (Clemson)
26. Dolphins – RB D'Andre Swift (Georgia)
27. Seahawks – DE Yetur Gross-Matos (Penn State)
28. Ravens – LB Kenneth Murray (Oklahoma)
29. Titans – DT Ross Blacklock (TCU)
30. Packers – WR Denzel Mims (Baylor)
31. 49ers – S Antoine Winfield Jr. (Minnesota)
32. Chiefs — C Cesar Ruiz (Michigan)

2nd round

41. S Grant Delpit (LSU) — This is the scenario that I'm hoping for, hence why I moved Delpit out of the first round. I still think there's a good chance San Francisco gobbles him up at No. 31, but in this case they don't.

3rd round

74. LB Akeem Davis-Gaither (Appalachian State) – In my first mock I had Gaither going to us at No. 41. For whatever reason, he has dropped, and the Browns capitalize and get a LB they need in the third round.

97. DT Raekwon Davis (Alabama) – You can never have enough defensive linemen. We learned that last year.

4th round

115. LB Troy Dye (Oregon) – You need LBs. A good player to develop and who can play on special teams.

6th round

187. CB John Reid (Penn State) – Seven passes defended. Seven INTs in a four year career in Happy Valley. He's a little shorter than your typical CB (5'10) but he makes plays.

7th round

244. WR Trishton Jackson (Syracuse) – I wouldn't be surprised if the Browns took a WR way earlier than this (as early as day two). Your top two WRs are coming off of surgery and it might be number three on the need list behind OT and LB.
