    And they do look a bit similar"The two draft experts from
    ESPN are at it
    again Mike

    , as Todd McShay and Mel Kiper have each released what they
    call their “Grade A” mock drafts. In these mocks, they both project three rounds
    and make the selections that would give each NFL team an “A” in the post-draft
    grades that are always at least three years too premature in being handed out.(I
    say that every year. Nobody listens. Ah, well.)Both of these “Grade A” mocks are
    behind the great E$PN paywall, but we can talk about the discussions. The
    sequence of picks that both men make for the Minnesota Vikings are similar,
    though the prioritization might be something that fans won’t agree with. Both
    men took an offensive lineman in Round 1, a defensive tackle in Round 2, and a
    running back in Round 3.As a matter of fact, both Kiper and McShay selected the
    same offensive lineman in Round 1, as they both tab University of Alabama
    offensive lineman Jonah Williams with the 18th pick. Both men, rightly, point
    out that Williams would be a huge addition to the Vikings’ offensive line, with
    Kiper pointing out that he could start immediately at either guard or tackle.
    Frankly, if Williams falls to #18, the Vikings should be running to the podium
    to give their card to Roger Goodell. . .but that’s just my opinion.Moving on to
    Round 2 Riley
    Reiff Jersey
    , both McShay and Kiper selected a player that could slot in
    as the Vikings’ new three-technique tackle to replace the departed Sheldon
    Richardson. Kiper decides to select Ohio State defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones
    (a name that has appeared a lot in our Mock Draft Database as a second-round
    pick for the Vikings), while McShay opts for Miami (FL) tackle Gerald Willis.
    Both Jones and Willis have their issues against the run, but if the Vikings want
    to attempt to replicate Richardson’s disruptiveness in the pass game, either of
    those two guys would be a solid pick.The running back position gets featured in
    Round 3 in these “Grade A” mocks, with McShay selecting Iowa State back David
    Montgomery, while Kiper decides to select Miles Sanders out of Penn State. While
    I’m not sure if running back is a spot I’d use a third-rounder on, of the two
    options presented I think I’d probably lean a bit more towards Montgomery. I
    think he’s a better receiver than Sanders, and that’s something the Vikings seem
    to value out of their running backs. Not that Sanders would be a bad selection,
    necessarily. . .I just like Montgomery a little more.What do you think of these
    “Grade A” drafts, folks? Would either of them get an “A” from you? CLEVELAND
    (AP) — Browns general manager John Dorsey has built a fearsome front on
    defense.One week after acquiring end Olivier Vernon in a trade, Cleveland added
    an inside presence to its line by agreeing with free agent tackle Sheldon
    Richardson on a three-year, $39 million contract, a person familiar with the
    deal told The Associated Press on Tuesday.Richardson, who has played with three
    other teams since 2013 and been suspended twice by the
    NFL Latavius
    Murray Jersey
    , will receive $21.5 million guaranteed, said the person,
    who spoke on the condition of anonymity because league rules prohibit teams from
    announcing signings until 4 p.m. EDT Wednesday.ESPN first reported the
    agreement.The Browns have also decided to bring back wide receiver Breshad
    Perriman, who has agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal for next season, the
    person said. Perriman revived his career with Cleveland last season after being
    released by Baltimore.The imminent signing of the 28-year-old Richardson gives
    the Browns a potentially menacing front four as he’ll play alongside Pro Bowl
    end Myles Garrett, who had 13 ½ sacks last season and has 20 in 27 career
    games.Vernon, who didn’t live up to expectations the past few seasons, gives
    Cleveland another threat off the edge, and Larry Ogunjobi emerged last season as
    a dependable run stopper.Cleveland’s defense ranked No. 30 overall last season
    and had 37 sacks, and Dorsey has made upgrading the front seven an offseason
    priority.He’s done it, and Richardson’s addition will give Dorsey more
    flexibility heading into next month’s draft. The Browns have the No. 17 overall
    pick and many experts had the team focused on adding a tackle in that spot from
    what’s considered a deep class.It’s possible Dorsey will use the selection —
    Cleveland currently has 10 picks in 2019 — to get another playmaker for
    quarterback Baker Mayfield. The Browns need a wide receiver who can stretch the
    defense and there are some highly regarded players who will be available.Another
    possibility is through trade, and speculation surrounding New York Giants star
    Odell Beckham Jr. and the Browns won’t go away. Dorsey has a good rapport with
    Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who has repeatedly said he didn’t sign Beckham to a
    five-year George
    Iloka Jersey
    , $90 million extension last August to trade him.Beckham
    teamed with Browns receiver Jarvis Landry at LSU and the two have worked out in
    the past with Mayfield.In the meantime, Perriman gives Mayfield another target
    and a player with whom he has built a connection. A first-round pick in 2015,
    Perriman was a bust with the Ravens and they cut him before last season.He
    signed with the Browns in October after a rash of injuries ruined Cleveland’s
    depth and was a pleasant surprise, finishing with 16 receptions for 340 yards
    and two touchdowns in 10 games. He expressed his desire to stay with the Browns
    and the team and agent struck a deal before he was set to hit the open
    market.With Perriman, Landry and Antonio Callaway, the Browns may have enough to
    dissuade them from giving up what it might take to land Beckham.Richardson will
    help the Browns get to the quarterback and plug the middle. The 6-foot-3,
    295-pounder spent last season with Minnesota, where he had 49 tackles and 4 ½
    sacks in 16 games. In six seasons as a pro, he has 23 ½ sacks and 195 tackles in
    87 games.Richardson was the AP’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013.While
    talented, he has also run into some trouble.Richardson was suspended for the
    Jets’ first four games in 2015 season for violating the substance-abuse policy
    for testing positive for marijuana. The league also suspended him for the first
    game in 2016 under its personal-conduct policy after he tried to outrun police
    in St. Louis, driving his Bentley at 143 mph before being stopped.NOTES:The
    Browns re-signed DL Carl Davis, who joined the team via waivers from Baltimore
    during final roster cuts last summer and appeared in five games. A third-round
    pick in 2015, Davis has appeared in 33 career games with 12 starts.
