2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Browns Looking Defense?

The Cleveland Browns will end their season with a whimper this weekend, but the bright side is that the team will go right into NFL Draft mode as a way to forget about this year. In an interesting turn of events, there are plenty of sites that have already started publishing their 2012 NFL mock drafts.

Thursday's mock draft update comes courtesy of Russ Lande of Sporting News. The veteran football writer decided that the Browns will apparently be in the market for a player on the defensive end, too -- at least as far as the first round is concerned.

While they would like to get a receiver for QB Colt McCoy, Kuechly brings explosive playmaking ability to a defense that needs it.

The Browns are known to be looking at quarterback Russell Wilson III this weekend, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to add a playmaker on the other side of the ball.
