Cleveland Browns Day 2 2014 NFL Draft Primer

During the first day of the 2014 NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns wheeled and dealed, accounting for seemingly all of the day’s trades.

The Browns ended the day with cornerback Justin Gilbert and quarterback Johnny Manziel. Many were expecting Manziel to go to Cleveland. Not so many were expecting Gilbert.

The Gilbert selection, and especially the trade, was a bit puzzling. Cornerback was a need for the Browns, but not many considered Gilbert to be a top-10 player, and the team certainly had bigger needs.

Manziel, on the other hand, made perfect sense. He could have been the Browns’ pick at No. 4, and no one would have blinked an eye. Instead, Cleveland got him at No. 22, settling the future of the quarterback position.

Clearly, the Browns have filled two needs. They also added a future first-round pick from a not-so-great team.

Everyone knew Cleveland would have an eventful draft, and the team is certainly living up to the hype.
