• Keon Coleman joins the Browns in Round 2: Cleveland, without a first-round pick, takes the Florida State wideout — an impressive 6-foot-4 and 215-pound athlete who enjoys getting physical with cornerbacks.

• Cleveland gets some help at tackle: With Jedrick Wills Jr. in the final year of his contract, the Browns draft Dominick Puni and Sataoa Laumea.

As the 2024 NFL Draft nears, our seven-round team mock draft series continues with the Cleveland Browns.

Round 2, Pick 54: WR Keon Coleman, Florida State

Coleman originally committed to Michigan State as a two-sport athlete before transferring to Florida State in 2023. His evaluation is a test of how much scouts prefer contested-catch receivers to athletic separators. He is an impressive 6-foot-4 and 215-pound athlete who enjoys getting physical with cornerbacks, as he constantly catches passes through contact. While that yields jaw-dropping feats of strength, his lack of separation ability is concerning for the next level — there just aren't a lot of guys who make a living as consistent contested-catch receivers. The ones who do are often some of the best receivers in the league.


Round 3, Pick 85: T Dominick Puni, Kansas

Puni was a no-star recruit and played at Central Missouri for four seasons before transferring to Kansas in 2022, where he played left guard and left tackle. In his first season with the Jayhawks (left guard), Puni displayed bad posture and poor pad level. That made him susceptible to rushers and didn't allow him to really maintain blocks. His posture was better in 2023 (left tackle), and although he was still standing taller than preferred, he was conscious of leverage and dropped his pads more before contact. He also showed a lot more power in 2023, disrupting and displacing defenders. His power best projects to guard.


Round 5, Pick 156: LB Trevin Wallace, Kentucky

Wallace confirmed his track explosiveness at the NFL scouting combine with 80th- and 90th-percentile scores in the 40-yard dash, vertical and broad jump. That athleticism shows up on tape, especially when triggering downhill. He can cut ball carriers off quickly, and that leg power brings hitting power when he arrives. He can be a good option for QB spy assignments. While he is an adequate athlete, he still needs to be more consistent in play recognition after the snap. He can often make up for it with his speed at the college level, but that won't be as easy in the NFL.


Round 6, Pick 206: LB Curtis Jacobs, Penn State

Jacobs is a good athlete with starting potential movement skills, but he must get stronger and continue to improve his coverage instincts to shorten throwing windows.


Round 7, Pick 227: Sataoa Laumea, Utah

Laumea's power profile is that of a potential starting guard. However, his footwork and anticipation must improve to match the speed of NFL rushers.


Round 7, Pick 243: CB Ryan Watts, Texas

Watts failed to earn a single 70.0-plus coverage grade over his career. That said, his size, tackling ability and prowess against the run mean that he'll likely get a chance to stick around on special teams.

Safety worth way more than 2 points. Help protect your family with fast, free will.
