Browns potential draft target: Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield

Only three of the top seven picks in this mock are non-quarterbacks: Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick (Indianapolis Colts), Penn State running back Saquon Barkley (Browns) and North Carolina State edge defender Bradley Chubb (Tampa Bay Buccaneers).

Thanks to last year's draft day trade that sent the No. 12 overall pick to the Houston Texans, who selected eventual star quarterback Deshaun Watson, the Browns also own Houston's selection in this year's draft.

For the second straight year the hapless Cleveland Browns control the NFL Draft.

The Browns also own the Texans' second-round pick after taking on Brock Osweiler's $16 million contract in March.

There will be a lot of coaches looking for work soon, some have already been let go. The Colts (4-12) helped the Giants by defeating the Texans 22-13. The Giants (3-13) will pick second. "So we're excited to see what (general manager John Dorsey) can do with the draft picks we've accumulated as well as what we can do in free agency".

There was a chance Sunday that the Colts could move up in the draft order, which would require the Colts to lose and the New York Giants to beat the Washington Redskins. Broncos (5-11) 6. Jets (5-11) 7.
