With nine total picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns made major moves to their roster. Considering the fact that they had four picks on day three of the draft alone, there are plenty of candidates for “draft steal” in Cleveland.
The Cleveland Browns are no stranger to a bad draft pick. From Johnny Manziel to Cameron Erving, the Browns have been known for their drafting ineptitude ever since Tim Couch was the first overall pick in 1999, over both Donovan McNabb (No. 2) and Daunte Culpepper (No. 10).
But, that’s enough of the past. For the first time since taking Couch in 1999, the Browns selected a quarterback with the first overall pick. Newly-drafted No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield will, hopefully, mark a new era for this “New Browns” franchise.
Moving further down the draft, the Browns had seven picks on days two and three of the draft. After selecting Mayfield first overall and Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward at No. 4, the Browns attempted to flesh out their team in rounds two through seven.
So, who’s got the potential to be a steal for this Browns team? Let’s take a look at two candidates from this draft, and give out some way-too-early draft awards.
