Which Browns players would Jaguars fans want?

Which player on the Cleveland Browns would Jacksonville Jaguars like to pluck and have on their team?

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Each week we take a look at the team the Jacksonville Jaguars are facing off against and think about a player we'd like to pluck from their roster. With the Cleveland Browns, it's actually quite difficult to choose. I waffled back and forth between a handful of players both on offense and defense.

Center Alex Mack would be an easy choice, because of the struggles in the interior of the offensive line. Someone like Josh Gordon would make a lot of sense too, as a play making threat opposite Cecil Shorts. Heck, you could even pick someone like Barkevious Mingo, who a lot of people thought the Jaguars might draft at No. 2 overall.

For me however, it came down to two players on the defensive side of the ball, Phil Taylor and Jabaal Sheard. Taylor is a massive load in the middle of the defensive line, but he's a bit more disruptive than most nosetackles are. He'd be a nice fit in the Jaguars defensive scheme.

Ultimately I came away picking defensive end/linebacker Jabaal Sheard, though. He's still young and he's been a consistent pass rushing threat for a few seasons. He also fits that mold a bit of the LEO-end that the Jaguars use, as well as grading out well both against the run and rushing the passer this season.

Who would you pick?
