2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Browns Likely To Take Justin Blackmon, Says Mock Draft

In a mock draft published Monday, CBS Sports’ Pat Kirwan says the Cleveland Browns will likely take Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon with the fourth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Kirwan explains his logic thus:

The Browns don’t have playmakers on offense, making it is difficult to truly evaluate Colt McCoy. From top to bottom the people in Cleveland are pure west coast offense guys. So they may not be able to convince themselves [Robert] Griffin fits what they want or shell out the compensation to move up and get him.

SB Nation’s most recent mock draft has the Browns trading up to nab Robert Griffin III. To do so means Cleveland would likely have to get to No. 2, a spot currently occupied by the St. Louis Rams, a team that figures to be set at quarterback with Sam Bradford.

The possibility of the Browns moving up was bolstered by a report that came out last week saying that the Browns considered it “an intriguing prospect” to move up in order to get Griffin.
