The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including Andrew Berry dropping some pre-draft hints
The 2022 NFL Draft is just days away now and while the Cleveland Browns don’t have a pick in Round 1, they have still done well in subsequent rounds under general manager Andrew Berry.
And just ahead of the event, Berry pulled the curtain back — ever so slightly — on what he and the front office is thinking heading into the draft.
While he didn’t reveal much, he did still have a few interesting nuggets including their willingness to draft a player who might require patience (such as someone coming off an injury).
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
Cleveland Browns news
"“First off, Berry said he is open to the idea of playing the long game when it comes to the draft, even if that means selecting a player that might be working his way back from an injury”"
Some fits who come to mind (that could be there at No. 44) include Alabama wideout John Metchie and Michigan EDGE David Ojabo.
"“The Browns needed to trade Baker Mayfield before the ink dried on Deshaun Watson’s contract. Instead, they trashed Baker in the media, aided in killing his trade value and are stuck with a QB they don’t want,” Griffin wrote."
RGII is pretty far off base with his claims. The Browns have not been trashing Baker in the media, instead, he has diminished his own value by getting back on social media and appearing on podcasts where he threw some shade at the team. His value was already hurt by his play in 2021 and only got worse when he gave more ammunition to those who are already calling him too immature.
Elliot Kennel looks ahead to the 2022 NFL Draft and says there are five positions where Cleveland doesn’t need to draft — and some might be a little controversial.
In 2020, Grant Delpit fell to the Browns in Round 2, and in 2021, it was Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. Ahead of the 2022 draft, John Suchan tries to identify three players who he believes could again slide to Cleveland in Round 2.
