The Browns did a tremendous job of bringing in some important pieces to their roster this offseason. Hopes are those additions will help them build on the success they had a year ago. In 2020, the offense was light years ahead of the defense, but that should not be the case moving forward. Cleveland has spent a plethora of resources on improving this unit, but not all of their solutions are long-term fits. Jadeveon Clowney and Takk McKinley are only on one-year deals, and the Browns were unable to get their hands on a pass rusher in the draft.

Finding Myles Garrett's partner to rush off the edge will likely be a top priority next April. So will continuing to find answers at Linebacker. I love the pick of Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah if they can carve out a role for his unique skill set. The addition of Anthony Walker and re-signing of Malcolm Smith also bring experience to a young group, but they need some guys to step up and latch onto positions this fall.

Across the ball, I like the talent and depth this team has built up on offense. However, the contracts of Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry could both offer cap relief following this year, so that Cleveland can navigate long-term deals with several of their younger stars. If that happens, WR could become another need for the 2022 NFL Draft.

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.
