Last top RB picks have made important performances in recent years. Names like Leonard Forunette, Ezekiel Elliot, Christian Mc Caffrey. They made their teams improve and be competitive, and have shown that even with a strong OL, runners must be good. And in senior season, Saquon Barkley showed that he have the skills and numbers to be top 5 pick in 2018 NFL Draft.
The Cleveland Browns are interested in a RB , his general manager John Dorsey stated that “If he’s a good football player and he plays the running back position, I’d love to have him on my team,” .
However the NY Giants have the 2nd pick, and they need a RB, so they m ay go to get Saquon Barkley to strengthen the backfield. However, other possible scenario is that the Giants pick OG Quenton Nelson out of Notre Dame, the OL is another need for the NY Giants to protect Eli Manning.
With the trade of the NY Jets in 3rd position of the draft and looking forward a QB, the draft scenario gets more interesting, because they will push the Browns to choose QB in first round and may leave Barkley to be the second pick.
So, the Cleveland Browns will need to choose between QB or RB and know how to use No. 1 and No. 4 pick.
