Darnold fits the mold of what the Browns need at the position—he's smart, accurate, tough and has a lightning-fast release.He's also steady enough in terms of personality to handle being the new savior of Cleveland football.At 6'4 ½" and 253 pounds, he doesn't look like a teenager and doesn't play like one either. Ward is the draft's best cornerback, and even after using a first-rounder on Gareon Conley last year, the Raiders still need help at the position.Edmunds is a versatile asset on defense, and given Reuben Foster's off-field issues, he would also provide insurance in case the Niners lose last year's first-rounder for an extended time. Ward's toughness, speed and instincts would make him an ideal fit opposite Conley, his former Ohio State teammate.Dating back to the combine, this is the noise the entire NFL has been hearing.It helps cement matters that Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was photographed sitting with Darnold's parents at his USC pro day.
The Buccaneers would likely identify him as a plug-and-play starter at strong safety.
He's a big (6'5", 233 lbs), athletic, strong-armed quarterback with the ideal tools to run offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates' scheme. He might be walking into a crowded backfield with Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson, but the Browns have no one like this dude.
There will be plenty of speculation that the Cleveland Browns could trade out of this spot on draft day and let a team such as Buffalo or even the Broncos move up to get a quarterback. Barkley is a rare prospect with the speed, strength, versatility and big-play ability to change the offense.
The Miami Dolphins are a hard team to peg in mock drafts.
They're out of range for a quarterback (despite sources telling me they are interested in them) and have added a pass-rusher in Robert Quinn. Linebacker speed is still an area of need, and it matches up well with the board.
