Andrew Berry has had some hits in the NFL Draft but heading into 2023, it's safe to say these four selections have been busts

Overall, Andrew Berry has done a very good job as the general manager of the Cleveland Browns. He's made some solid draft picks including Greg Newsome, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, and Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Having said that, there have been some misses as well by him — and even more from his predecessor, John Dorsey. As we await the 2023 season, let's take a look at four players that seemed to be solid selections but are now clearly in the bust category.

4. Demetric Felton, RB/WR

Donovan Peoples-Jones was added in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft and it was clear right away that he was a steal. He had 304 yards on just 14 receptions, which was an average of 21.7 yards per reception.

The excitement he generated had fans excited when Berry added another potential playmaker in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. This time, he took Demetric Felton out of UCLA who played both wide receiver and running back for the Bruins.

Cleveland has given him more snaps as a slot receiver than a traditional running back but after two seasons, he's primarily been a return man. Unfortunately, he hasn't really impressed in that role. He averages just 6.9 yards per punt return and 18.3 on kickoffs. Throw in the fact that he has five fumbles and a couple of muffed punts in his short stint and it's safe to say Felton is not the steal some hoped he would be.
