Now that the college football season has come to a close, players all over the nation will wonder which team will select them in the NFL draft. They won't wonder that half as much as Cleveland Browns fans will, however.
Each year in Cleveland the draft is like a Municipal Holiday. Fans gather all around the city to wait and see which players they can hang their hopes and dreams upon.
The 2014 draft will be more exciting than ever for Browns fans. Cleveland holds the fourth, 26th, 35th, 71st and 83rd picks in the top 100. And that is just in the first three rounds.
The Browns currently hold ten picks overall and have a ton of ammunition to move around. They proved this was the draft they thought could propel them back into contention by trading away fourth and fifth round selections in 2013 for third and fourth round picks in 2014.
“I think that we said all along that we felt like the draft of 2013 did not compare to the draft of 2014,” Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said via Ohio.com. “We like the talent in the draft of 2014.”
If this is the draft that will launch the Browns back to relevance, then they need to hit on more than a few of their selections. Oh yeah, they might want to hire the right head coach this time as well.
Despite that minute detail, here are the best-case scenarios for the Browns in each round of the 2014 draft. Keep in mind we are still four months away from the draft so tons can and will change.
