NFL Draft 2012: Todd McShay Mock Gives Browns Mike Adams And Quarterback

The Cleveland Browns and their No. 4 pick have been the topic of much debate when it comes to mock drafts. Most figure that the Colts will take Andrew Luck, the Redskins will take Robert Griffin III and the Vikings will take Matt Kalil. After that, the first real question mark is Cleveland, with multiple needs, almost all on offense. Many are suggesting Justin Blackmon, Trent Richardson or Ryan Tannehill at that pick, and they're all feasible.

Todd McShay, in his latest mock draft, went with Blackmon, as noted earlier. But his mock spanned two rounds, and the Browns also had a pick later on in the first. McShay ended up giving the Browns offensive tackle Mike Adams out of Ohio State:

Adams is a little risky because of his lack of consistency and killer instinct, but he has the size (6-7¼, 323), agility and long arms that teams look for in left tackles. The Browns have a need at tackle, and Adams has plenty of upside.

Cleveland does need a tackle, especially if they end up taking a quarterback in the first round before they get to Adams. Even if they proceed with Colt McCoy, they'll still need to protect him better as they look to improve the entire offense. McShay doesn't think they'll go with a quarterback in the first though, and in stead has them selecting Brandon Weeden out of Oklahoma State at pick No. 37, their second-rounder.
