NFL Draft 2010: It will be difficult for new General Manager Mike Holmgren to mess up his first pick (seventh) with the Browns; when a team has so many needs, finding starting talent in the first round should be easy. Finding wins will be the bigger challenge for Holmgren as he tries to turn around what has been a moribound franchise.

2009 Summary: Finished last in the AFC North with a 5-11 record.
2010 Cleveland Browns Needs: Quarterback, Wide Receiver, Running Back, Safety, Linebacker, Cornerback, Defensive End
Possible First Round Picks:
Jimmy Clausen (QB – Notre Dame): Cleveland would, no doubt, love to get its hands on Sam Bradford, but unless it trades up, the former Heisman winner will not be available at seven. The next best thing may be Clausen. The Irish quarterback had an excellent pro day and there is no fault to be found in his 2009 numbers (3722 yards, 68 percent completion percentage, 28 touchdowns, four interceptions).
Eric Berry (FS – Tennessee): Berry is the top defensive back in the draft according to most prognosticators. If he falls to seven, Cleveland would be hard pressed to pass on him. The Browns ranked 29th in pass defense and interceptions last season, acquiring Berry would go a long way toward improving those numbers.
Dez Bryant (WR – Oklahoma State): There are plenty of questions surrounding Bryant's character, but there are none regarding his skill set. He would make an immediate impact on a Browns receiving corps that is not totally devoid of talent but it is dangerously close to it. If his priorites are straight, Bryant could become a much needed go to guy for new quarterback Jake Delhomme.
