No it’s not Christmas, it’s not Easter, it’s the most important, non-federal holiday in the world: The NFL Draft. It is a time for broken hearts, jaw-dropping selections, and even some favorable outcomes depending who is the GM of your favorite team.
This year, I found a Draft simulator online, where you get to be the GM for the day, and draft your star team. With that being said, it’s time for GM Eirons, to make his debut.
And with the 26th pick, in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select: Jayson Oweh, Edge, Penn State. My first pick may come as a shock, as the Browns recently signed Clowney and Takkarist McKinley, however, Clowney is on the down hill of his prime, in both age and being injury prone, so adding Oweh will bring some reliable youth to the D line, being mentored by Myles Garrett.
RD 2, No. 56 – LB Jamin Davis, Kentucky: I ended up following the rumors of going linebacker, however, I waited until the 2nd round to find one. I picked up the Kentucky linebacker, not only being the best available on the board at this time, but he will add more depth to the linebacker core, with the recent signing of middle aged Anthony Walker and Mack Wilson, who has been in the talks about possibly departing the team.
RD 3, No. 89 – DB Ar’ Darius Washington, Washington: Sticking with the defensive theme, I went with Washington in the 3rd round, to add another good safety to assist with the return of Grant Delpit, and could be a good starter/replacement for both the struggling Sendejo and Ronnie Harrison.
RD 3, No. 91: DB Thomas Graham, Jr, Oregon: More defense! Essentially trying to build the Browns version of the Iron Curtain, I went defense again adding another solid, cornerback already adding to the scary core of Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and recent signing of Troy Hill.
RD 4, No. 110: DT Bobby Brown III, Texas A&M: Adding to my defensive units, again, I picked up the former Aggie, as another big body in the trenches, to help replace the loss of Larry Ogunjobi.
RD 4, No 132: WR Damonte Coxie, Memphis: Prolly my biggest sleeper pick out of everyone on my list (and even the entire Draft if I do say so), the 6’3 receiver would be a nice fit as a slot receiver, amongst the receiving core of Landry, OBJ, and DPJ, and Higgins.
RD 5, No. 169: TE Tommy Tremble, Notre Dame: I went a little rogue here late in the draft, going with a tight end. I could honestly see Njoku getting traded, so I felt Tremble would be a solid replacement, with both having good hands and blocking ability, especially in Kevin Stefanski heavy tight end sets he runs.
RD 6, No. 211: T Cole Van Lanen, Wisconsin: Jack Conklin is good, but he is also getting old. Van Lanen would be a good youthful addition to the O-Line, plus them Wisco boys built a little different. Not much else to report on.
RD 7, No. 257: DE Malik Herring, Georgia: Was actually really surprised to see him last this long. A big name in Georgia, with some slept on talent. Maybe drafting another DE was bold, but the amount of speed and power coming off that line, would be amazing.
