The Cleveland Browns will open the 2015 NFL Draft on Thursday night facing the biggest draft since, well, last year.
General manager Ray Farmer went a long way toward rebuilding the roster last season, even with the struggles of first-round selections Justin Gilbert and Johnny Manziel. Holding 10 picks – including four in the top 77 – of this year’s draft, Farmer has an opportunity to really push the Browns forward.
So what will happen over the course of three days and seven rounds? Will Farmer give head coach Mike Pettine and defensive coordinator Jim O’Neil more weapons for the defense? Or will it be time to give offensive coordinator John DeFilippo something to work with on offense?
Or maybe, just maybe, will Farmer take another crack at fixing the ongoing quarterback conundrum?
In an attempt to figure things out, the staff here at Dawg Pound Daily got together to answer the five biggest questions facing the Browns during the upcoming draft.
