Selection Comment - Pick #19

Return to Mock Draft

The draft will be so much more pleasant for the Dawg Pound in 2025 without the 24-hour wait until they make their first pick. I have continued to advocate for a pass-rush partner for Myles Garrett, but it's certainly not the only place Cleveland has question marks. I like this young receiving core but they are still widely unproven, and that includes Elijah Moore and Jerry Jeudy, who are searching for some consistency for the first time in their respective careers.

This starting offensive line is widely-proven, but will account for more than $70M in cap hits in 2025 without Jedrick Wills under contract. On defense, the Browns have the potential to be really good. They have a ton of depth at every level, and was quietly one of the better units in the league during last season's injury-plagued campaign. Similar to the offensive line though, there is a lot of money invested on this side of the ball with Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah looking for a new contract as well. Next April's task may not be to fill holes left by free agents, but rather cap casualties. Still, it will be good to make that first selection on day one.
