FanSided NFL Mock Draft: Clevleland Browns Select Derek Carr

We are running through our FanSided NFL Mock draft at the moment. This is where the editors around the network make the selections for their teams. We will be publishing the entire mock when it is complete on this site and will post each selection individually as they come in as well. 

Here are the selections that have already been made by our FanSided editors:

1. Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins) Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo
3. Jacksonville Jaguars Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

With the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select…

Derek Carr, QB Fresno State

Selection made by Peter Smith, Editor of Dawg Pound Daily

Here is the analysis on the selection:

The Browns appear to be hoping Khalil Mack lasts until their pick and failing that, they would ideally like to move down before selecting the quarterback they want, who I believe to be Derek Carr.

Carr has all of the arm strength and accuracy to be a franchise quarterback as well as the experience and the hard working mindset to succeed. Not only does he fit Kyle Shannahan extremely, but is also built for the AFC North climate.

How far Carr can go as a quarterback will depend entirely on his ability to improve and demonstrate consistent footwork.
