Cincy Jungle Writer's mock draft: Cleveland Browns on the clock (again)

Chris Graythen

With their second first-round pick, who will the Browns select that could help them finally rise from the basement of the AFC North?

The latest edition of the Cincy Jungle Writer's Mock Draft is here. Be sure to keep up with all of the picks in a out stream page.

Next up are the Cleveland Browns, who are picking in the first round for the second time.

Mickey: Browns take Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

The Browns look tom improve their offense and will look for Cooks to emulate a former Brown, Josh Cribbs. Cooks is an explosive playmaker that can make cuts as well as patiently wait for plays to develop.

The Browns seem to be all in over the next couple season based on their activity in free agency. Adding Cooks gives their earlier quarterback selection another weapon and if they gel, could be a very strong passing offense.

Anthony: Cardinals (TRADE) take Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

The man who shall remain nameless in Cincinnati (Carson Palmer, cough, cough) is 34 years old and in the twilight of his career. He can likely be their quarterback for the next year or two, but Arizona needs to start looking to the future. Opinions vary widely on Carr, but he'll likely be a late first round selection.

Bruce Arians loves throwing the football and there is plenty of effective tape of Carr doing just that at Fresno State. He needs to work on his pocket presence in the face of pressure, but could develop into a solid NFL starter.

Jason: Browns take Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

Roby may have some holes in his game and character, but talent will win out with him as the Browns nab him to pair alongside the All-Pro Joe Haden. Roby needs to have his technique refined and become a more consistent player, but Mike Pettine is the perfect head coach for him to be under.

He'll ensure Roby keeps his head on straight and lives up to his potential. If Roby does buy in and learn from Pettine and Haden, this Browns secondary could become one of the best in the NFL with Donte Whitner protecting the back-end of their defense.
