The Cleveland Browns have been rumored to be drafting a litany of positions with the 4th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft -- with offensive tackle perhaps the least talked-about option of the bunch.

However, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, "despite a glaring need at quarterback, the Browns could be planning to take a tackle.  Even with Joe Thomas anchored on the left side and center Alex Mack in place at big money for the next two years, Super Bowl XLVIII established conclusively the importance of having quality pass blockers on each side of the line. "

Whether or not the Cleveland Browns decide to draft a tackle at four will come down to the rest of their draft board. If they see potential game-changers at both quarterback and wide receiver further down the depth chart, they may be willing to expend the fourth pick on someone like Auburn's Greg Robinson -- and perhaps attack the quarterback position with the 26th pick next weekend.
