This mock couldn’t have played out any better for the Browns. Even after adding Carlos Hyde in free agency, I just can’t see the Browns passing up on a possible generational talent at running back. A game changer is needed in the backfield to take some pressure off the QB. What better way to take pressure off the QB than by having an extremely powerful run game consisting of Hyde, Barkley and Duke Johnson?
Another route they could take here would be to select Denzel Ward, as I believe cornerback is the weakest position group on their entire roster, but there should still be some very solid options available at the cornerback position with the 33rd overall pick.
This domino effect happens to work out pretty nicely for the Broncos. They have quite a few holes on offense that need to be addressed, such as QB, RB and TE, and getting more youth in their wide receiving corps.
Everyone knows there are not many holes on this defense, even after losing one of the best cornerbacks in the entire league (Aqib Talib), but one glaring hole is at defensive end. The defensive end position provided very little production for the Broncos last season, and adding Chubb would add a whole new dynamic to this defense. The most elite pass rusher in the 2018 draft class paired up with Von Miller would be a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks.
