The Cleveland Browns made it out of the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft without making any questionable decisions, which seems like a first after so many poor draft decisions.
They executed another trade to acquire more draft picks, and are sticking to the idea of a rebuild. Seeing some consistency from the front office is a step in the right direction as the team tries to rise from the bottom of the NFL.
Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman was the lone player added to the roster Thursday, but he was not the only addition. The Browns traded the No. 8 pick to the Tennessee Titans for the No. 15 pick, acquiring a third round pick in the process.
Every pick in the draft is important, but the No. 32 pick may be the be the most important of the remaining picks. The Browns have all day to think of who they will take, as the pick leads off the second round.
Reggie Ragland, Myles Jack and Connor Cook are among those the Browns could select with the No. 32 pick, while trading down also remains a possibility.
The second and third rounds are sure to have storylines of their own, so let’s take a look back at what stood out Thursday night during the first round.
