With the 19th pick in the 2015 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Cleveland Browns GM ryanyankee2362 selects...

LSU G / T La'el Collins

addressed defensive line with the 12th overall pick by drafting Danny Shelton, so I thought I would go over to the offense with this pick.  The biggest need on offense for the Browns besides QB is WR, and the top two WRs left are Dorial Green Beckham and Jaelen Strong. DGB has a ton of talent, but his off the field issues are a concern. The Browns have had more than their share of off the field issues with Johnny Manziel and Josh Gordon, so I would pass on DGB if I were them. As for Strong, I'm not completely sold on him being a player worthy of being picked top 20, so I would pass on him as well.

The Browns OL was really good before Alex Mack went down last year, but Mack's injury exposed some depth issues. It also wouldn't hurt to upgrade at RT, as Michael Schwartz received an average PFF grade last year. That brings me to La'el Collins from LSU. Collins played LT at LSU, but most scouts say he would be better as either a RT or G in the NFL.  He can come in and probably take over for Schwartz right away, and make an already rock solid OL even better.  Collins is a very talented player, who many scouts and analysts rave about.  When I saw that he was still available, I couldn't resist.
