NFL Draft: 5 players the Browns should take at No. 8

1 of 6

Here are five players the Cleveland Browns should consider taking with the No. 8 pick in next week’s NFL Draft.

In a matter of moments, the look of the 2016 NFL Draft changed (well, at least the first round) as the Cleveland Browns agreed to trade the second overall pick (along with a later round pick in 2017) to the Philadelphia Eagles for the eight overall pick and a boatload of picks in 2016, ’17 and ’18.

On the surface, it looks like the Browns may have come out on top in getting additional picks for a team that, quite frankly, needs more than one player to help them get into the playoffs (or have a winning record).

By moving down six picks, the Browns will miss out on the players who are consensus top five picks, including quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Jared Goff along with defensive back Jalen Ramsey and offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.

But that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of talent at the eighth spot for Cleveland to choose from. From quarterbacks to defensive ends and linebackers to defensive backs, the Browns are in a decent position to get a star player on their roster for 2016. Here are the five players the Browns should look at taking at No. 8.
