Time for try number two on the Browns seven-round mock draft. As before, we use the ever-popular TDN. The first draft most would have signed up for but felt a bit unrealistic, according to most Browns fans. Well, we run it back for 2.0, and only one player is still available to grab from the last draft. Let’s get 2.0 going.
Andrew Thomas, Left Tackle, Georgia
Height 6′ 5″ Weight 315 lbs Arms 36 1/8” Hands 10 1/4”
Thomas is one of four tackles expected to go top 15 in the NFL draft. Thomas spent his college career in Georgia. Andrew stepped in, taking over at right tackle his freshman season. He would garner All-American honors while starting all 15 games. Over the next two seasons, Thomas would start all but two games at left tackle for the Bulldogs. He started 13 games at left tackle and was awarded first-team Associated Press All-American and first-team all-conference accolades in 2019. Andrew Thomas is a legit left tackle prospect heading into the NFL Draft.
Antoine Winfield Jr., Safety, Minnesota
Height 5′ 9″ Weight 203 lbs Arms 30 1/8” Hands 9 1/2”
The son of former Jim Thorpe Award winner and three-time NFL All-Pro cornerback Antoine Winfield Sr. Antoine Jr. was not highly recruited out of Texas. He would start nine games his freshman year highlighted by 82-yard touchdown interception return. He would then struggles with hamstring and foot injuries over the next two seasons. 2019 would be a different story as Winfield jr. started all 13 games and excelled for the Golden Gophers. He would finish the year with 88 tackles (3.5 for loss, three sacks) and seven interceptions (returning one for a score). His stellar 2019 would garner a first-team Associated Press All-American award and All-Big ten selection. For Browns, fans having the son of an Ohio State legend on the Browns will make Winfield a popular pick.
Kyle Dugger, Safety, Lenoir-Rhyne
Height 6′ 1″ Weight 217 lbs Arms 32 7/8” Hands 10 3/8”
Dugger has shown a unique blend of size, speed, and explosiveness during his time in college. There is no doubt about the talent, but there are some questions regarding his motor. This concern could just be an elite talent losing focus against lesser talent. Dugger will need to prove he can play with NFL talent. The Browns brought two safeties in during free agency but if a talent like Dugger is sitting at pick 74 it’s worth the pick.
Logan Wilson, Linebacker, Wyoming
Height 6′ 2″ Weight 241 lbs Arms 32 3/8” Hands 9 1/2”
Wilson started 14 games as a freshman for Wyoming. He finished the year as the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year, finishing with 94 tackles, 7.5 for loss, three sacks, three interceptions, and four pass breakups.
As a sophomore, he garnered second-team all-conference accolades with a team-high 119 tackles, eight for loss, two forced fumbles, and one interception in 13 starts. Wilson led his squad for the second year in a row in 2018 (103) as well as tackles for loss (11). He would also intercept two passes and break up two others on his way to honorable mention All-MWC honors.
As a senior, Logan was a first-team all-conference pick and also was named third-team Associated Press All-American with another stellar season. Logan racked up 104 tackles, 9.5 for loss, one sack, three interceptions, and six pass breakups in 13 starts. The Browns need linebacker help, and Logan brings 4.6 speed and playmaking ability.
K.J. Hill, Wide Receiver, Ohio State
Height 6′ 0″ Weight 196 lbs Arms 29 1/8” Hands 9 1/4”
Hill polished off his Ohio State career by becoming the all-time receptions leader with 201 career receptions. He is more quick than fast and works hard at his craft. Hill led the Buckeyes in receptions once again as a senior with 57 for 636 yards and ten touchdowns. With players like Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, and Kareem Hunt gobbling up reception a rookie wideout might be what you have to have. New head coach Kevin Stefanski loves two tight ends, and you have the above trio. Not many veteran wideouts are running to sit behind all that. Hill gives them a four-year polished wideout to grab all the leftovers.
Javelin Guidry, Cornerback, Utah
Height 5′ 9″ Weight 191 lbs Arms 31 1/4” Hands 9”
Guidry has one thing NFL teams always covet, speed. According to NFL.com, he ran a 4.29 40 yard dash. That will always move you up the draft board a bit. On the field, Guidry had 42 tackles and six pass breakups in 14 games (12 starts). For his career, he has three interventions, one for a touchdown and 19 pass breakups. If you are drafting a player this late in the draft, then find one with one elite talent and go for it. A player with the kind of speed Guidry has clearly qualifies. The Browns depth at cornerback will help limit pressure and allow the young corner to develop over his first couple years in brown and orange.
