CLEVELAND, Ohio — Let’s start here: mock drafts are not real drafts. I know, we react to them like they’re real, but if we’re being honest, most of them you can ball up and throw in the trash after about 10 picks.
Not this one, in part because it’s a podcast and if you throw it in the trash you’ll realize soon enough you’ll have to dig through the trash to get your phone back. Also, since we did it panel-style, it feels a little more like the real thing, where the guy you really want gets snagged one pick too soon or the reality hits your position of need is gone before you even had a chance.
Mary Kay Cabot, Doug Lesmerises, Scott Patsko, Ellis Williams, Tim Bielik and Dan Labbe mocked the entire first round of the NFL Draft for our Thursday roundtable pod.
Make sure you check out cleveland.com on Thursday night beginning at 9 p.m. when we’ll have a live draft show taking you up and through the Browns’ pick at No. 26, with live reaction and more.
