Quinn works at #6 as a 4-3 DE, even with the risk his benign brain tumor presents, but Taylor is a real head scratcher with the team moving to a 4-3. Sheppard is an interesting third rounder with the range to play all three downs in the middle but a long way to go instincts-wise. Taiwan Jones seems to be a very odd pick to me with RB arguably the strength of the offense. Salas helps as a crafty wideout who can do a lot of the things Jordan Shipley did for Colt McCoy back at Texas. I do like the late pick of Hall to develop as a quality mean RT. With all the crazy trading going on and Cleveland needing help all over the front seven of their defense in a transition to a new scheme, I would have expected a clear plan to move down and get more picks, just like the two deals that happened right in front of them in the early second.

    How do I get involved in this? I’m a huge Browns fan, huge draft nut, and very interested in contributing. I’ve published mocks before, went to the Sloan MIT sports analytics conference this year (if you don’t know, google it), and have a ton of interest in helping out.
