2011 NFL Mock Draft: A.J. Green To The Browns In The Latest SB Nation Mock

SB Nation just came out with the latest edition of their 2011 NFL Mock Draft, and the prospect they have going to the Browns is a pretty welcome sight. They have Georgia A.J. Green going No. 6 to Cleveland. Here is their rationale.

Last Thursday, the easy projection here would have been Da'Quan Bowers. Now, it's tough to see any pass rusher worth this pick; Nick Fairley would make sense for Dick Jauron's 4-3, but adding a unique receiving talent to aid in Colt McCoy's development makes more sense.

There are certainly a lot of prospects that should be available who could help the Browns out defensively, but none of them could change a game quite like A.J. Green. They need to add some pieces around Colt McCoy, and Green could be a No. 1 target for years to come. He has all the tools to be a dominant receiver in the NFL, and I don't think the Browns pass him up if he is available to them.
