A team source has told DPN that the Cleveland Browns draft strategy is not built around a particular player or position, but rather is said to be fluid and built around contingency plans in the event that certain players are gone. GM Ray Farmer is said to be building his big board based on scouting reports, film, as well as Combine performance and interviews. Once the team’s big board is set, the team will build contingency plans around the various draft day scenarios.
What does this mean? Essentially, Farmer is not yet sold on one particular player or position. I’ve been hearing reports that the Browns are “all in” on Sammy Watkins, or “all out” on Johnny Manziel, but this is simply not the case. While I have been hearing that the Browns draft board is beginning to take shape, it’s a far way from finished, and according to the “little bird”, the Browns are committed to keeping their options as open as possible.
