Where do the Cleveland Browns go from here?
Since 1999, the Browns have been far more miss than hit when it comes to picking talent in the NFL Draft. Whether it be gunning for a big name or a quarterback, they never seem to get it right. But as of the past two years, things have started to change.
One of the great things the Browns did in last year’s Draft that is looking like a very smart move was giving up on the chance to draft Carson Wentz and load up more picks for the future. Most said it was the worst mistake since passing on Ben Roethlisberger, but given Wentz’s regression since the Week 4 bye, it looks like the Browns may have won that deal for now.
Since the Eagles are sitting at 5-8 with 3 tough games ahead, the Browns could end up with two top-10 draft picks. The smart approach would be to not focus on the quarterback, but rather focus on the big holes the team is missing like DE, S, RB, OL, CB and others.
The Browns are in prime position to get four picks in the Top 50, two of them possibly being in the top-10 with one being the number one overall pick.
The Browns have many holes to fill in this draft and the talent is available if the team picks correctly and doesn’t buy into a quarterback like most expect.
