Mock Draft Roundup: Offensive line, wide receiver a popular prediction for Browns after Senior Bowl

The Senior Bowl offered plenty of exposure to players looking to escalate their stock with a little less than three months before the NFL Draft.

Granted, many of the top-projected players weren't in Mobile for last week's festivities. Still, that kind of event can have a major impact on the analysts who make a living off these sorts of prognostications.

We're two weeks into our weekly roundup of the mock drafts from all across the Internet. We're focusing, of course, on the Browns, who hold the No. 17 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Kalyn Kahler - The MMQB: OT Cody Ford - Oklahoma
Of note: Ford was a starting guard for quarterback Baker Mayfield for a handful of games in 2016 and 2017.

Lance Zierlein - LB Devin White - LSU
Of note: White had a combined 256 tackles in his final two seasons with the Tigers.

Bucky Brooks - OT Jonah Williams - Alabama
Of note: Analysts are split on where along the line Williams projects to play in the NFL after starting all three of his seasons with the Crimson Tide.

Luke Easterling - USA Today: WR D.K. Metcalf - Ole Miss
Of note: Metcalf, who was sidelined by a neck injury for the second half of 2018, received some good news last week and is expected to participate at the NFL Combine.

Dan Kadar - SB Nation: DT Jeffery Simmons - Mississippi State
Of note: Simmons was the 2018 winner of the Conerly Trophy, given annually to the best football player in the state of Mississippi.

Of note: In this mock, Trapasso projects Metcalf to be the first wide receiver selected in the draft.

Of note: Williams began his Alabama career as a right tackle before shifting to the left side for his final two seasons.

Of note: Ford was a right tackle in his final season with the Sooners but has enough versatility, in some analysts' eyes, to play left tackle in the NFL.

Of note: Ford missed most of 2016 and only started a handful of games in 2017 because of a broken leg.
