2012 NFL Mock Draft: McShay Says Trent Richardson, Kiper Says Justin Blackmon

There are just a few hours until Cleveland has it to make its first round pick, and at least two of the NFL's draft experts are split on who the Browns will take. ESPN's Todd McShay says it will be Alabama running back Trent Richardson and his colleague Mel Kiper Jr. thinks the Browns will pick Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon.

Kiper Jr. believes the Browns can find a running back later in the draft:

The Browns may go running back here, but I think they could target the best wide receiver on the board and look for help in the running game later, possibly at No. 22.

With their second pick of the first round, Kiper Jr. has the Browns choosing Boise State running back Doug Martin. McShay, however, believes this will be the time the team goes with a wide receiver, which will be Baylor wideout Kendall Wright. Concerns about Wright's weight have been made in the last few days.
