In Latest SB Nation NFL Mock Draft, Cleveland Browns Select Da'Quan Bowers

SB Nation’s Brian Galliford has once again updated his 2011 NFL Mock Draft, and he now projects the Cleveland Browns will select Da’Quan Bowers, a defensive end from Clemson, with the sixth overall selection. He explains his choice:

Either receiver, A.J. Green or Julio Jones, would be a smart pick here as the Browns build around Colt McCoy. That said, either of the two pass rushers – Bowers or Robert Quinn – would be equally difficult to pass on as the Browns move to the 4-3.

The shift to a 4-3 defense could indeed prompt the Browns to shore up their line with Bowers; ESPN Insider Todd McShay had the same thought last week.

Dawgs by Nature, SB Nation’s Browns blog, also had Cleveland taking a defensive end in its ongoing mock draft exercise, but with Bowers off the board, it settled for Cameron Jordan of California.
