Well look at that, two strong first round selections for the Cleveland Browns in the same draft?! The selection of Cameron Erving to throw on that offensive line is another solid pick for the Browns brain trust.
Erving not only provides protection for
Josh McCown Johnny Manziel Tim Couch the quarterback as a guard in 2015, but could easily move over to his natural position of center if Alex Mack opts out of his contract prior to the 2016 season.
Kudos to the Browns for a very strong first round. While they needed a running back, quarterback, receiver and even tight end, they opted to build on their lines instead of taking risks like they did in 2010, 2012 and 2014. The picks were very unlike Cleveland, and that’s a compliment.
