Mock Draft Watch: Browns land Wisconsin DT Keeanu Benton in Dane Brugler’s latest

While the Cleveland Browns do not have a first round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, they are currently slotted to have the 41st pick if the event were today. It is not a secret that the Browns need a defensive tackle, and that is exactly what The Athletic’s Dane Brugler gave them in his latest mock as Wisconsin’s Keeanu Benton was the pick.

Benton is currently ranked as my eighth-ranked defensive tackle in the class, so going early in the second round is rich. While Michigan’s Mazi Smith was off the board, Alabama’s Byron Young or Illinois’ Johnny Newton could serve as more explosive and dynamic defensive tackles for the Browns to target as they come onto the clock in the 2023 NFL Draft.
