Top NFL Draft Targets
In the 2014 draft the Browns will have their own 1st round pick along with the Colts 1st round pick. They are either going to pair them together to move up; or sit back and make their picks. The Browns own pick will be a top 10, as they currently sit at 4-8. The Colts will be in the 20’s, most likely between 24-26. The Browns are going to take a good long look at Marcus Mariota (QB, Oregon) and Tajh Boyd (QB, Clemson) at the quarterback position. Mike Evans (WR, Texas A&M) or Allen Robinson (WR, Penn State) would be a solid pick at the WR position, with one of their two picks. With so many needs, and so many QBs available, it’s hard to imagine the Browns pairing the two picks together, but never count out surprise moves by the Browns.
