2011 NFL Mock Draft: All 32 1st Round Picks, Cleveland Browns Finally Pick

2011 NFL Mock Draft Cleveland Browns Land Late-First-Round Gem

In this scenario, the Cleveland Browns traded down with the Cowboys to No. 9, and then traded all the way down with Atlanta. For a team on the rise with a new head coach, Mike Holmgren stocks up draft picks in the second and third rounds to build a division winning team sooner than later.

Despite trading all the way down to No. 27, the Browns land an absolute steal with their first round selection. Muhammad Wilkerson is an absolute beast out of Temple and fills the major pass-rushing need for the Browns. Wilkerson is a versatile player who can play both defensive end and defensive tackle, but will play end for the Browns and become a leader on the front seven quickly.
