Just like almost all of the teams picking before Cleveland, the Browns struggled on defense in 2012.

Cleveland ranked 23rd in total defense in 2012, but if the defense can step up in 2013, the Browns can contend for a Wild Card spot. Cleveland could upgrade their defense with someone like Jordan, but Jones is also a potential fit. Jones sacked the opposing quarterback 14.5 times in 2012, and he recorded 85 tackles.

The Browns were 19th in run defense, and Jones, who averaged 7.1 total tackles per game, could help out there. Cleveland’s defense lacks a star, and Jones can be that star. He is a complete player, and while he hasn’t exactly shined in pre-draft workouts, Jones was a star in 2012. If Jordan is gone and Jones is here, he will be taken by Cleveland.

And, even if Jordan is here, it’s likely that Jones ends up in Cleveland.
