Mock drafts are immensely popular. For the hopeful, mocks offer exciting possibilities. For those who love to argue, mocks provide fodder. Dozens (hundreds maybe – who has time to count?) of sites publish mock drafts and update them frequently. Mocks may come in a “best guess” format, or a “what I would do” format. They may be one round, two rounds, seven rounds, whatever. Hell, if you scroll through your twitter timeline right now there is probably some kind of mock draft happening. You can even simulate the draft right here if you’re into that sort of thing. Perhaps it’s this over saturation that has caused me to avoid doing one of my own this year. Or it could be that my last offering, from April 24, 2013, was so hopelessly inaccurate that it caused me to become subconsciously gun-shy. Still, I couldn’t just retire from the mock draft game, so with 35 days to go until the real deal, I decided to dust off the Magic Eight Ball. But did I opt for the “Seven Round Browns Mock Draft” over one that included every team in the league? All signs point to “yes.” (more…)

Free agent negotiations have begun, and players can officially sign contracts on Tuesday. The Browns have applied the transition tag to center Alex Mack, and are prepared to let T.J. Ward test the waters. The team brass may still lock both players up to long term deals, but the Browns  must also look to free agency for outside help. Even with ten draft picks, the Browns have room to add as many as eight or nine starters, and Cleveland can’t head into the season using rookies to plug all of the holes at quarterback, running back, receiver, offensive line, linebacker and defensive back. Free agency is a chance for the team to use its ample salary cap space to add quality depth and players familiar with the new coaching staff. Here is a look at some of the outside free agents who will be, or should be on the Browns’ radar. (more…)

Midway through the preseason, the Cleveland Browns look like a different team – an expected result considering the turnover of nearly the entire coaching staff and front office.  Some position battles are revealing clear winners.  Others remain a bit muddled.  While still others have been complicated by injuries – an inevitable consequence of a brutal sport.  Here’s a look at how things are shaping up as the Browns prepare for their third preseason contest – a game in which projected starters from both teams should see extended playing time.

The Cleveland Browns will open the preseason at home against the St. Louis Rams this coming Thursday, and in anticipation the team has released their first depth chart of the year.  Early August depth charts are written in pencil, and plenty will happen between now and the regular season opener, but this initial glimpse still offers plenty of clues as to how some key positional battles are shaping up.  Here are a few quick thoughts on each position grouping.

The Cleveland Browns have completed mandatory minicamps and organized team activities, and will regroup for training camp on July 25th.  Players have around six weeks to rest up, nurse injuries and brush up on the playbook.  The names haven’t changed much since early May, but there have been a few interesting developments.  Here is a look at the current offensive personnel, and who seems poised to earn a spot on the final 53-man roster.
