Cleveland Browns Team Needs:

The Cleveland Browns has youth on their side but have a number of positions that need to be upgraded in the 2017 NFL Draft


GM Sashi Brown has a difficult task of filling the Browns roster will talent. Coach Hue Jackson did an admirable job in his first year at the helm given all the new faces  and devastating injuries they’ve had to deal with over the past few months. The 2017 NFL Draft will be the perfect opportunity for Brown & Company to add supreme talent to bolster their core for future seasons to come.

The Browns fortunately hold the 1st and 12th overall picks in the upcoming draft. The 12th pick was a consolation from Philadelphia after trading out of their pick in 2016’s draft and essentially passing on quarterback Carson Wentz.

Texas A&M Star Myles Garrett seems like a great fit and a future Pro Bowler. According to Pro Football Focus, Garrett finished his three-year career with 31 sacks, 35 QB hits and 99 hurries (165 total pressures) on 978 rushes, creating pressure on 16.9 percent of his attempts (NCAA average is 10.0 percent). Myles could fit into any scheme and would pair nicely with second year player Carl Nassib.

The second selection in the first round is going to be a splash player and the best player on the board at that time. With this pick, LSU star Jamal Adams could potentially be the steal of the draft. His game is reminiscent of Brian Dawkins and Ronnie Lott. He’s an ultimate throwback with his coverage, passion for the game, and his ability to deliver a big hit. According to Pro Football Focus, Jamal played in 37 games with 26 starts, including every game in 2015 and 2016.  Adams finished career with 209 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, five interceptions and two sacks. He was First Team All-America and First Team All-SEC in 2016, when he was the leader of an LSU defense that allowed only 16 touchdowns all season. He could end of being a “once-in-a-generation-type of safety that will thwart opposing offenses from throwing or running in his direction.
