Browns will draft a LB in the first-round? Not so fast

The Browns have a wish list for 2021. All clubs do.

After last season, that list was quite lengthy: strong safety, free safety, cornerback, a tight end or two, left tackle, right tackle, right guard, swing tackle, fullback, backup quarterback, linebacker, backup defensive tackle, third receiver, punt returner and slot cornerback.

This off-season? Defensive end, third wide receiver, linebacker, cornerback, swing tackle and maybe kicker.

And out of these positions, wouldn’t linebacker appear to be on top of the list? On the surface, that appears to be correct. Or is it?

If so, free agency and the college draft are the Band-aids to remedy the team’s ailments.
