We take a look at the two players drafted by the Cleveland Browns Friday night on Day 2 of the NFL Draft and grade each selection.
Entering Friday the Cleveland Browns held on to pick No. 52 in the second round and pick No. 65 in the third round. The Browns originally were slated to pick first in the second round or No. 33 overall, but traded back into the first round with Green Bay Thursday night.
As the second round developed the Browns front office let the draft come to them at No. 52 overall. Many talented defensive backs were still on the board when the Browns took the clock. However, the Browns recognized their need to find the “guy” at quarterback and identified Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer to potentially be that guy.
Following the selection of Kizer the Browns went back to the defensive side of the ball and added power and strength to the defensive line with Larry Ogunjobi. Ogunjobi comes from the small school of UNC Charlotte where he had a fantastic four-year career.
Analysts and media members are praising the Browns for going after a quarterback with high upside at great value in the second round. Five selections into the Browns’ draft they have added talented players to key positions of need. The idea of Kizer working with Hue Jackson has the potential to finally put an end to the dreaded quarterback problem for good.
