With Jadeveon Clowney, a 2014 first-round pick, reportedly joining the Browns, the city that will host the 2021 draft now has 10 first-round picks on the roster.

The other nine first-round picks on the Cleveland roster include receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (2014), tackle Jack Conklin (2016), defensive end Myles Garrett (2017), quarterback Baker Mayfield (2018), defensive end Takk McKinley (2017), tight end David Njoku (2017), defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (2013), cornerback Denzel Ward (2018), and tackle Jedrick Wills (2020).

The Browns also have three No. 1 overall picks — Clowney, Garrett, and Mayfield.

And let’s not forget they also have a Super Bowl MVP. Linebacker Malcolm Smith, a seventh-round pick in 2011, was the MVP of Super Bowl XLVIII.

  1. Whomever picked most of these players in the 1st round hopefully they are no longer making these really poor decisions for other NFL teams.

  2. I mean let’s be honest, finishing with like 4 wins in 3 total seasons years ago, plus acquiring picks/players makes this possible. Pretty incredible…now let’s see if it works this year, they’ve been on a good trajectory the past couple years in a tough division. Good luck Brownies

  3. Sounds great if it you’re playing Madden. In reality, they’re probably the 3rd best team in that division every year for the foreseeable future.

    And that’s gotten them 1 playoff win.

    —-

    And still, they have the same number of SB victories as the Bills

  5. Since choosing Donta’ Hightower and Chandler Jones in 2012, let’s take a quick look at the Patriots 1st round selections:

    2014: Dominique Easley – bust
    2015: Malcom Brown
    2018: Isaiah Wynn – complete bust
    2018: Sony Michel – OK player but nowhere near a 1st round talent
    2019: N’keal Harry – bust

    Perhaps Robert Kraft should disallow BB from choosing players in the 1st round

  6. if they were great first round selections, how did all of them end up on the Browns?

  7. And still, they have the same number of SB victories as the Bills

    And they have more 0 win seasons than super bowl appearances so what’s your point tough guy

  8. It’ll be 9 by the beginning of the season. I expect Njoku to be a draft day move-up chip. If not, he’ll be dealt for a future pick. Having a decent but inconsistent first round TE as your 3rd best on the roster is begging for trade.
