The Cleveland Browns have plenty of holes on the both sides of the ball to fill this offseason. Luckily they have two first-round picks in the 2014 NFL Draft. With the 4th pick, the Browns are expected to draft a quarterback or wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The 26th pick needs to be used to complement a WR/QB or to strengthen the defense.
If the Browns draft Sammy Watkins or a player at another position, then they need to draft a QB with their second pick in the first round. Brian Hoyer, a player coming off an ACL injury, is the only QB on the depth chart. Derek Carr may be the best QB available at this time.
If the Browns do pick a QB with the 4th pick, selecting a player to protect the QB might be a wise decision. Xavier Su'a-Filo is the best offensive guard in the draft this year.
The Browns have a surprisingly solid defense and should continue to strengthen that side of the football. A cornerback to complement Joe Haden would improve the defense mightily. Fuller can play the outside as well as the inside and is an impact performer.
Jason Verrett is more NFL-ready than Kyle Fuller is and would be able to make an impact right away. He's an extremely fluid athlete with a high football IQ.
Karlos Dansby fills a hole at the linebacking position, but it does not solve anything long term. Cleveland could further improve their defense by drafting C.J. Mosley. He's an all-around LB with sure-tackling skills and ability to drop in coverage.
