AFC North Draft: Browns Select Cameron Erving
Now the Browns went with a good pick for their first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft when they selected Danny Shelton out of Washington. The 19th pick the Browns had from the draft day trade last year with the Buffalo Bills when they moved up to select WR Sammy Watkins.
The Browns left the 2014 NFL Draft without a single wide receiver selected only to see Josh Gordon return from his suspension a scooch too hefty to catch passes from whatever horrible quarterback the Browns were throwing under center and now he’s gone for the next season as well.
One of the biggest draft needs for the Cleveland Browns was wide receivers. So it makes perfect Browns sense for them to go with Cameron Erving, a guard out of Florida State with their second pick in the first round of the draft. Perfect sense indeed.
Even more, Erving was projected to be a second round pick so it makes even more sense that the Browns would jump all over him in the first round and leave all the available wide receivers sitting on the board for anyone to jump on.
Erving could provide to be an eventual successor to Browns center Alex Mack but he will need a big learning curve considering he played only two seasons as a starter on the offensive line. Perfect guy to protect Johnny Manziel, huh?
Erving is a massive man at 6’5” and 313lbs but seems to be like more of a project than a first-round pick that can fit right into the lineup and be a difference maker. Those crazy Browns and their drafts. Never a dull moment with those guys, right?
What do you think of the pick of Cameron Ervin for the Browns? Do you see any battles between him and the Steelers defensive line in the future?
