At this point, many Browns fans have already been hoping for the team to lose for weeks to improve its draft positioning in 2012. Personally, I will never condone tanking a season for draft picks, though I'll grudgingly admit that I do understand the logic behind throwing in the towel early for the sake of future picks if the season is already lost.
But whether the Browns adopted the Suicide For Draft Slot strategy, the way they've played ensures they'll have a pretty good position when draft day rolls around next spring.
Currently the Browns are slated to have the fourth pick overall and roughly the 22nd pick overall (from Atlanta).
Generally speaking, it's a little early for mock drafts, particularly because the draft order isn't even set yet.
But as for what we can expect from the Browns in the 2012 NFL draft in the broader sense? Well, this is Cleveland, after all; it's never too early to start waiting 'til next year.
