I took OURLAD’S mock as a road map, and chose Cleveland’s entire draft—all 13 picks. This class is heavy on wideouts, but I chose the best players on the board. Agree?

#4 Trent Richardson/RB/Alabama
Releasing the Kraken (Richardson), gives Cleveland a threat they haven’t had in the backfield since Greg Pruitt played here.

#22 Cordy Glenn/T-G/Georgia
To get a guy who can play several line positions, is NEVER bad!

#37 Don’ta Hightower/MLB/Alabama
If he’s home at #37, Cleveland HAS to call. This athletic thumper frees the team to use D’quell Jackson as the WILL or SAM!

#67 Amini Silatolo/G/Midwestern State
Will give Cleveland flexibility, and attitude along their offensive front.

He’ll be Cleveland’s Mike Wallace.

#139 Jonathan Massaquoi/DE-OLB/Troy
Mo Mass’s cousin, and a definite playmaker off the edge.

#160 Chris Owusu/WR/Stanford
My only issue with Owusu is health. Concussions are no joke!

#204 Drew Butler/P/Georgia
Best punter in this class, with NFL bloodlines. Definite weapon.

Typical ‘Cane, flashes potential though not consistent.

#211 Greg Childs/WR/Arkansas
If injury issues are over, maybe Cleveland drafts a gem.

Developmental prospect with some tools.

#247 Lavon Brazill/WR/Ohio
Big time playmaker all over the field, with speed. Another weapon for Colt. Worth a pick here!
