Our Football Insider subscribers make picks 11
CLEVELAND, Ohio With the Browns taking tackle Andrew Thomas in our Football Insiders mock draft, it is time to reveal picks 11 20.
There is still a lot of talent on the board, highlighted by a plethora of receivers that likely won’t be available much longer. We turned to our Football Insider subscribers to help us mock what could happen, beginning April 23 and through Day 1.
Our Insiders have already seen most of the first round by now, too, and will see the full mock before it goes up here. We will also have an exclusive Football Insider digital draft show later this week.
On top of that, you’ll get texted news and analysis as it happens and you can interact with me, Mary Kay Cabot, Scott Patsko and Ellis Williams directly you text us and we text you back, cutting through the clutter of social media. It’s also the only way we take questions for our Orange and Brown Talk podcast, which now runs five days a week. The cost is $3.99 per month after the trial expires. Or you can text 216 208 3965 to sign up.
Here are the first 20 picks of our mock draft:
1. Cincinnati: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU (Dave in Clyde)
## ## 2. Washington: Chase Young, DE, Ohio State (Chris in Chicago)
3. Detroit: Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State (253 area code)
4. NY Giants: Isaiah Simmons, LB/S, Clemson (Bud in San Jose)
5. Miami: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama (Alex in 419 area code)
6. LA Chargers: Jordan Love, QB, Utah State (Mike in Westlake)
7. Carolina: Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn (Jordan in Raleigh)
8. Arizona: Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama (Ross in Tucson)
9. Jacksonville: Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa (Andy in Bratenahl)
10. Browns: Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia (All vote)
11. NY Jets: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma (Jeff in Orlando)
After Robby Anderson left via free agency, the Jets need a weapon on the outside to help Sam Darnold. Lamb is that guy.
12. Las Vegas: Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama (Hayden in Lima)
The run at receiver starts here. Coach John Gruden finally replaces the long departed Antonio Brown.
13. San Francisco f/IND: Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama (Barry in Lima)
As if the 49ers needed more offensive weapons, the fastest WR lands with a Super Bowl contender.
14. Tampa Bay: Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville (Brian in Cleveland)
Tom Brady puts Tampa in win now mode. Becton will help keep Brady upright while he throws to all his new toys.
15. Denver: Javon Kinlaw, DE, South Carolina (Tony in Cleveland)
The Broncos capitalize on adding talent upfront to a defense that is already in the top half of the league.
16. Atlanta: Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor (Garth in Shaker Heights)
Not sure Atlanta needs more pass catchers but to compete in the NFC South, it is going to take a lot of points.
