The Cleveland Browns own an impressive 12 picks in the upcoming draft. Here we try and predict how those choices will play out in this seven-round 2018 NFL Mock Draft.

No team had a worse 2017 NFL Season than the 0-16 Cleveland Browns. That cannot be disputed. What also can’t be disputed is that no team can improve their roster faster than those very same Browns thanks to the 12 draft picks they own in the 2018 NFL Draft.

These aren’t a collection of mid-round picks either. The Browns have five premium picks as they own two selections (No. 1 and No. 4) in the first round and another three in the second round. That’s enough ammunition to add five starters in one weekend to a team desperate for talent.
The best part about that is they finally have the staff in place to make the right picks as well. With Sashi Brown gone, they may finally be done trading back and acquiring more and more picks. They now have John Dorsey at general manager and the former Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs front office man has a track record of making the right decisions.

Here we will try and predict just what Dorsey will do with those 12 picks. Of course, it could al change should they land themselves a suitable starting quarterback like Kirk Cousins or Alex Smith in free agency — or via trade in Smith’s case. For now, we predict all their selections with the roster as is, beginning with the No. 1 overall pick.
