The Cleveland Browns will be first on the clock when the 2017 NFL Draft opens tonight. Here is how you can watch all the action.
Today is the day that NFL fans – especially those of the Cleveland Browns – have been waiting for all off-season. After months of speculation and rumors about the interest their team has in certain prospects, we will finally have all of our questions answered.
At 8 p.m. ET, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will take the stage at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Once Goodell arrives at the podium, he will announce that the Browns are on the clock and the fun will begin.
Barring any trades, the Browns hold 11 picks in this year’s draft and will be selecting tonight at No. 1 and No. 12. Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett is expected to be the top selection, but after that every option is on the table for the Browns.
