NFL first 11 picks mock draft with the Kirk Cousins factor
By Brian Miller
5 of 12
4: Cleveland Browns – with Cousins
Selection – Minkah Fitzpatrick – S/CB Alabama
This will be an interesting pick for the Browns for several reasons. Could they draft a quarterback first overall and if they do would Barkley fall to four? Would Bradley Chubb be the pick if the Colts selected Barkley? Cleveland needs a top rated corner and Fitzpatrick is the best in this years class. Assuming that the team lands Cousins, this makes a lot of sense.
Selection without Kirk Cousins
QB – Sam Darnold, USC: Without Cousins the Browns will either draft Josh Rosen at the very top of the draft or will wait and take Darnold or Josh Allen at number four. It really depends on who they have more immediate value in, quarterback or running back.
