The Browns have plenty of needs in the upcoming NFL Draft, but offensive tackles aren’t among them, thanks to the presence of Joe Thomas and Mitchell Schwartz.

In a draft filled with high-end tackles, the Browns’ No. 6 pick offers them a chance to trade down a few slots and potentially regain a second-round pick. It’s a scenario ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper thinks is a possibility if the Browns don’t like what’s available when they’re on the clock April 25.

“They’re going to have, I think, great opportunities to move down because that pick is going to represent either Eric Fisher, possibly, the left tackle from Central Michigan, or Lane Johnson, the left tackle from Oklahoma,” Kiper said during a conference call Wednesday. “So that’s going to be a valuable pick that somebody’s going to want. So, yeah, I think they could move down.”

The Browns need defensive backs, particularly a cornerback to play opposite Joe Haden as they transition to a 3-4 defensive front. Kiper believes the best cornerback available, Alabama’s Dee Milliner, will be selected by the time the Browns pick. Beyond Milliner, he doesn’t think a corner warrants being taken any higher than No. 19, when Xavier Rhodes (Florida State) or Desmond Trufant (Washington) should be available.

The Browns are thin in the secondary. The club waived Usama Young on Tuesday, leaving them youngsters Tashaun Gipson and Eric Hagg as possible free safety replacements. Hagg struggled in his second season and Gipson remains raw. Many believe the Browns need to upgrade the position.

Kiper expects a run on safeties in the second round – one that currently doesn’t include a Browns pick because of their decision to take receiver Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft. Gordon had a solid rookie season, but for an organization in transition and with many holes to fill, it would covet an additional early-round choice.

Kiper mentioned the San Diego Chargers, who hold the No. 11 pick and need an offensive tackle, as a possible trade partner.
