What a terrific turnout from the Dawg Pound with the draft in their backyard. The rain didn't deter them, nor did the cold, and the expectations are higher than they have been in a very long time in Cleveland. I mentioned in our final mock draft that the Browns had done a lot of homework on the corners, and that the only thing that might sway them would be an edge-rusher. It appears no defensive end on the board was more tempting than the elite athlete from Northwestern. He needs to get more polished with his footwork, as his success has mainly come from his raw athletic ability. Still, if he gets more technically sound, the interceptions that he lacked in college are going to show up. Grade: B+

Wow. There were many that thought Owusu-Koramoah could have been the Browns' pick at 26. He may never start a game for Cleveland, but that doesn't mean he can't be one of their most impactful defenders. At 216 pounds, he's not going to have a natural position in the base defense. Still, in the nickel package he can make plays in a variety of ways from a variety of allignments. Defensive coordinators are still trying to find ways to maximize the talent of hybrid players like this, and Joe Woods needs to have a role in mind for him. Yes, the Browns have already missed on a guy like this in Jabrill Peppers. However, I just can't imagine a situation where he is not a playmaker for this team.

The Browns just added one of the fastest players in this draft to add to an offense that was really good in 2020. He can take the top off of defenses with ease, and when teams use him on a reverse motion, someone better be accounting for him. He's not the most polished route-runner, and I'm not sure I'd want him running a lot of routes over the middle. He's got a slight frame, but when the ball is in his hands, hold your breath, Dawg Pound. This might be one of the most electrifying players Cleveland has had since Joshua Cribbs.

Grade: A-

BROWNS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
