Will they draft the best player available on their board? Or, more likely, will they trade down in order to gain a much needed second-round pick?
One more solid draft could be enough to complete the re-building process that Tom Heckert started in Berea just a few seasons ago.
Cornerback is also a big need. Despite signing two corners in free agency, there doesn’t appear to be a starting caliber player on the Browns roster to field opposite of Joe Haden.
