Cleveland Browns News: Time for some wheeling and dealing in 2020 NFL Draft
By Randy Gurzi
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a story about general manager Andrew Berry being open to draft day trades
The Cleveland Browns decision-makers are in Indianapolis right now scouting the incoming class of rookies. In addition to looking at their potential draft picks, head coach Kevin Stefanski and general manager Andrew Berry have also taken some time to speak to reporters about the upcoming season.
For Berry, that has centered around his mindset with personnel moves. We don’t know a lot about him, seeing as how he’s a first-year GM, but Berry has pulled the curtain back some for the fans.
One thing that has stood out is how he doesn’t seem tied to any plan. This isn’t to say he’s winging it, but he is being “flexible.” In fact, that’s the term that was used when describing whether or not he would be willing to move up or down in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Browns’ Andrew Berry ‘flexible’ on trading up or down from No. 10 in the NFL draft — Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com
"“We’re going to be flexible in that regard,’’ he said during his NFL Scouting Combine podium interview Any strategic maneuver that allows us to reach our goals, acquire good players and the right people for our organization, we’re not going to be bound to be staying static, going down, going up. We’re going to do anything possible that allows us to improve the roster.’’"
Berry seems to be an incredibly well-spoken and intelligent football mind. He’s doing a good job of letting fans know he’s open to just about anything while also not showing his cards.
Cleveland Browns may pursue a veteran presence behind Baker Mayfield
Drew Stanton has served as the veteran backup and mentor for Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns the past two seasons. However, he’s been more mentor than backup and Cleveland could be looking for a guy to do both — and a couple of well-known names could be on the radar.
Searching for the Browns’ next Joe Thomas: Meet Iowa tackle Tristan Wirfs — Earl L. Williams, Cleveland.com
"“It’s been nearly two years since soon-to-be Hall of Fame left tackle Joe Thomas retired from the Browns, and Cleveland still sorely misses him.”"
John Dorsey did a lot of good for the Browns in his two seasons in Berea. However, if there was one area that he failed, it was his inability to replace Joe Thomas. That’s clearly job No. 1 this offseason and fans are getting to know each and every prospect coming in this year.
Maybe Baker Mayfield isn’t a raging jerk
The one thing that stands out in the Tony Grossi fiasco is the fact that the reporter genuinely doesn’t like Baker Mayfield — and if he was willing to make his attacks personal, maybe he should take the majority of the blame for the press conference snafu Mayfield had last year.
