2020 NFL Draft

Round 2 of mock drafts: Who do experts peg to the Browns now?


The NFL Scouting Combine starts next week and the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft is right around the corner.

OK, that might be a stretch. The draft is 78 days away, but who's counting?

Those who churn out mock drafts certainly are not.

Just a few weeks ago, we took a look at a handful of mock drafts to see what experts think the Browns will do with the 12th and 19th picks. Remember, the Browns are the only team with two first-round picks because of last year's trade with Buffalo.

Here's how the latest shake out. As you'll see, opinions are all over the map.

12 - WR DeVante Parker (Louisville)

19 - DT Eddie Goldman (Florida State)

Of note: Parker missed the first seven games of his senior season with a foot injury but was absolutely dominant in the final six, catching 43 passes for 855 yards and five touchdowns. Kiper Jr., who re-graded the Browns' 2014 draft as a B , writes Parker has "as high a ceiling as you can find in this class."

12 - OL T.J. Clemmings (Pittsburgh)

19 - WR Devin Funchess (Michigan)

Of note: Clemmings has played offensive line for just two seasons, as he began his college career as a defensive lineman. McShay writes Clemmings at No. 12 might be a reach but "he makes sense because of the importance of the position and his high potential."

12 - WR Kevin White (West Virginia

19 - NG Jordan Phillips (Oklahoma)

Of note: Phillips last checked in at 6-foot-6 and 334 pounds. His strengths, according to, include a massive frame, long arms and surprising athleticism for a player of his size.

12 - NG Danny Shelton (Washington)

19 - WR Jaelen Strong (Arizona State)

Of note: Strong has prototypical size (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) but is considered relatively raw. He began his collegiate career at Pierce College, a junior college in Washington.

12 - Clemmings

19 - WR Devin Smith (Ohio State)

Of note: The Buckeyes went 22-0 when Smith caught a touchdown pass. The big-play threat had a catch of 30 yards or longer in 13 of 15 games this past season.

12 - OLB Dante Fowler Jr. (Florida)

19 - Smith

Of note: Fowler Jr. was one of the nation's best pass rushers even though his stats (15 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks) didn't necessarily reflect it. Fowler Jr., who constantly drew double-teams, was a Sporting News second-team All-American.

12 - OT Andrus Peat (Stanford)

19 - Strong

Of note: One of the nation's top left tackles in 2014, Peat has the versatility to play right tackle and enough potential to take over for Joe Thomas whenever he retires, Rang writes.

12 - White

19 - DT Malcom Brown (Texas)

Of note: A dominant force from the beginning of his senior season, White had just two games in which he didn't have either 100 yards or a touchdown reception.

12 - OT Brandon Scherff (Iowa)

19 - WR Sammie Coates (Auburn)

Of note: Most mock drafts don't peg Scherff to fall this far, but Kirwan believes "right tackle types" tend to not be drafted as high as they're originally anticipated.

12 - White

19 - OT Ereck Flowers (Miami)

Of note: Flowers played just three seasons with the Hurricanes, a common occurrence at many positions but not typical with offensive tackles. Kiper Jr. writes Flowers "plays with an edge, is a coachable kid who could get better quickly, and could become an elite pass protector if he can be better with his hand placement."
