Browns NFL draft strategy: Vets with guaranteed salaries could impact draft picks

Browns NFL draft strategy: Vets with guaranteed salaries could impact draft picks

Mock drafts often focus on talent but following the money can be helpful as well

Figuring out what the Cleveland Browns will do in the 2024 NFL draft is darn near impossible. Not only are the Browns at the whims of all the teams selecting before them at pick #54 but GM Andrew Berry doesn’t have an immediate need that jumps off the page.

Not only has that led to mock drafts with names all over the place (including Jack’s final version Monday morning) but it has also led to a wide variety of prospect profiles ([including RB Jaylen Wright...

2024 Browns Mock Draft: Jack’s Version 8.0 adds a new receiver name to the mix

Draft Week is Finally Here! Xavier Legette, Theo Johnson join Browns offense in this mock draft

It’s been a long process but we’re finally here and just days away from the 2024 NFL Draft and while we have to wait an extra day before the Cleveland Browns make their first selection, it’s an exciting time to be a fan of the NFL.

Going through hundreds of draft picks, watching games, analyzing athletic testing, team fits, and countless mock draft simulators has been fun and yet a grind trying to figure out who will be the best players to potentially join...

Browns NFL Draft Profile: RB Jaylen Wright

Browns NFL Draft Profile: RB Jaylen Wright

Wright would bring elite speed and playmaking potential to Cleveland’s backfield

The Cleveland Browns are heading into the 2024 NFL Draft with a plethora of positions in mind, and running back is most likely one of them due to Nick Chubb’s injury situation.

Andrew Berry did a good job addressing the running back position in free agency with the signings of D’Onta Foreman and Nyheim Hines to 1-year deals. Though they should both be able to carve out specific roles in the offense going forward, they’re not the type of players that should deter the Browns from drafting a ball...

Browns could have a solution for Saints big issue after the NFL draft

Jack Conklin rumors could pick up if he proves to be healthy

The NFL draft is right around the corner. The sad reality is that not every team is going to get their needs met during the draft. Some teams will see players they wanted snatched out right in front of them while others will decide to focus on best player available over team needs.

For the Cleveland Browns, a decision between “now or later” this year will be interesting with their six draft picks. The team only has two in the first four rounds which limits their options.

Browns contracts: Where top-paid stars rank at their positions after NFL free agency

Browns contracts: Where top-paid stars rank at their positions after NFL free agency

Salary cap and yearly value are different, looking at where Deshaun Watson, Amari Cooper and others fit in

The best players left in NFL free agency consist of two Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers (franchised tagged Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd) and a variety of mostly older players who are likely to sign one-year contracts this offseason.

The Cleveland Browns didn’t make a big splash in free agency. Instead, they retained a lot of their key depth pieces and traded for WR Jerry Jeudy. Much has been made about the Browns salary cap “issues” going into this offseason but GM Andrew...

2014 NFL Draft altered Browns in unexpected ways

2014 NFL Draft altered Browns in unexpected ways

Avoidable mistakes were made 10 years ago, but franchise has dug itself out of the rubble to be a playoff contender.

The Cleveland Browns braintrust headed into the 2014 NFL Draft in a solid position to improve a roster that had won just 27 games over the previous six seasons.

The bungling front office of Joe Banner and Michael Lombardi were out, replaced by general manager Ray Farmer. The team also had a new head coach in Mike Pettine, who hoped to build a foundation of accountability and competitiveness after the revolving door of Rob Chudzinski, Pat Shurmur, and Eric...

NFL draft: Five more Browns predraft visits include RB, TE, WR, OT and CB

No stone unturned to find talent

The Cleveland Browns are working hard to prepare for the upcoming NFL draft slated for April 25-27. The club does not have a first-round selection for the third year in a row. They do, however, own a second-round pick for the first time in two years.

The franchise has only six picks this time around. But the beauty of it is, none of the players GM Andrew Berry brings in with this class are needed to start and probably won’t unless they surprise everyone in training camp. Every new prospect can be developed as...

“Unleased” replaced “Building the Browns” last season

While the Cleveland Browns, like every team in the NFL, do not like a lot to be known about the inner workings of their team, “Building the Browns” was fun for fans to watch. As the team was working toward being a winner on the field, their own miniversion of “Hard Knocks” provided some behind-the-scenes looks at the process.

In 2023, stating they were done “Building,” the team unveiled their new series “Unleashed” as they hoped to connect fans to a franchise that was no longer held back. The new program gave us...
