Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY SportsThe defense should consume much of this year’s draft Chris Hubbard Color Rush Jersey , and GM John Dorsey needs to make sure each pick is one that will help this team contend for the AFC North Division title. Since the Browns do not possess a first-round pick this year, their selection in the second stanza is critical.Expect one of the draft picks in all likelihood at some point to be spent on a DT for added depth and to work towards a starting position. The Browns have already traded DE Emmanuel Ogbah and realize that a good defense will use multiple defensive linemen continually throughout the game to keep fresh legs on the field. Gerald Willis could very well be that player and should be available in Round 2 with pick number 49.A former five-star recruit, he originally signed with Florida, but had issues with several coaches and teammates. As a freshman, he was involved in a fight over a pair of cleats with Gators’ QB Skyler Mornhinweg to which the signalcaller required stitches. He was also suspended twice for undisclosed reasons. In another incident in the game against rival Florida State, QB Jameis Winston of the Seminoles had scrambled and gained minimal yardage and then darted out-of-bounds into the Florida bench. As Winston decelerated he approached two Florida players standing on the sideline, one being Willis. Next, Willis hauls off and shoves and then punches Winston with both forearms right in the facemask. Willis was ejected and his team was assessed a 15-yard personal foul.Florida in due course released him fundamentally, and then he transferred to the University of Miami. Willis’ playing growth was stalled in 2017 when he took the entire season off at Miami with allegations of character issues. But once he returned, he was a completely different player and possessed new leadership skills plus a good work ethic previously missed. Everyone associated with him - especially his Miami coaches - all rant about the change in his attitude and life in general. The result was a very productive 2018 season peppered with a relentless behavior. This player is a force and does not miss tackles.Specifics: College: MiamiHeight: 6’-4”Weight: 300 pounds 40-time: 4.95Career Tackles: 33 Career Tackles for Loss: 18 Career Sacks: 1.5 Career Forced Fumbles: 1Positives:First-step explosiveness & burstSwim move his forte’Big enough to push through weaker blockersNatural big-man strengthWill chase down plays from backsideQuick feet and excellent change of directionSure tacklerNasty playerAfter sitting out 2017 season exceptional player2018 Second-Team All-AmericanNegatives: Needs to stay lower for more leverageImprove hand usageWork on more flexibilityBetter balance controlOff-field issues include a transfer from Florida, one-game suspension for violation of team rules , partial MCL tear in 2016, took a leave of absence for the entire 2017 college season, dislocated finger 2018Expert Draft Site AnalysisCBSsports.comDo you think Willis’ off-field issues would prevent you from drafting him and adding him to the defensive line rotation? BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Baker Mayfield has become the NFL’s unwanted poster boy for helmet-to-helmet hits.Twice this season, Cleveland’s rookie quarterback has been struck in the head by tacklers during games and both times the officials failed to call a penalty for the obvious infractions.Mayfield’s trying not to take oversights personally.“They just have to find their consistency,” he said of the erratic calls. “With every ref it’s different — how they see it, how they’re seeing the plays, momentum with the whistle, when it’s blown, stuff like that. So as they continue to try to enforce the same rule, I think the consistency will grow. But right now Kevin Zeitler Jersey , that’s why you’re seeing some confusion.”On Oct. 21 at Tampa Bay, Mayfield slid after a 35-yard run and was drilled from the side by Buccaneers safety Jordan Whitehead, who wasn’t flagged but was fined $26,739 fine by the NFL, which acknowledged days after the hit that it should have been a penalty.Last week, Kansas City safety Ron Parker delivered a glancing blow with his helmet to Mayfield while the quarterback was being wrapped up by defensive tackle Chris Jones. Again, no penalty was called, but Mayfield was forced to leave the game after an independent medical observer called the officials and requested the QB undergo a concussion evaluation.Mayfield passed the test and was allowed to return three plays later. He fought to stay in the game.“Yeah. I guess that is the new rule,” he said. “I have to come off the field for a checkup.”Parker could be fined by the league, which announces its weekly punishments on Saturday.Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft Joel Bitonio Color Rush Jersey , joked that Parker’s hit fortunately didn’t do any damage.“It would be more frustrating if it hurt,” Mayfield said. “I was more frustrated they took me out of the game, to be honest with you. But they’re protecting me. They’re doing their job. So ultimately what can I complain about?”Mayfield has sympathy for the officials, who are doing what they can to protect players — especially quarterbacks — while presiding over a game that’s moving very fast. Mayfield smiled when asked if the officiating was as uneven when he played in college at Oklahoma.“No,” he said, grinning. “I had a bunch of friends out there, so it was good.”
