The Cleveland Browns brought in 10 new players in this year’s NFL Draft. Here is what fans can expect from each of the 10 new faces.
The Cleveland Browns had what looks like could be a really good draft. However, the Browns have missed on quite a few of their picks in the past and are looking to break the habit like Linkin Park.
With three first-round draft picks, a player who could become the team’s future quarterback and a couple of value picks, on paper this draft could be the one that helps turn the corner.
I want Browns fans to temper their expectations, however, because they shouldn’t assume that this draft class will take the world by storm, the way Dallas’ did last season. You can never perfectly predict how a season will go. Injuries, trades, player progression and regression are all surprises that can alter the team’s fortunes.
In a previous article I wrote about the team’s undrafted players, so now I want to focus on the 10 guys who were drafted. What we know about them and what we can and should expect from them.
Not all of them have the same expectations but plenty of them are going to be called upon to change the losing culture that plagued Browns teams past. Let’s begin with the three players taken in the first round.
