NFL Draft 2016: Cleveland Browns Day 2 selections


Looking at the Browns selections on Day 2 of the 2016 NFL Draft

After the 2015 NFL season, the Cleveland Browns were in a disappointingly familiar position as they finished with the second worst record in the league and were awarded the No. 2 overall pick for their struggles. With the front office blowing the team up this offseason, though, the Browns deemed it a better decision to trade down and garner more assets, striking a deal before the NFL Draft with the Eagles and moving down to No. 8.

However, the Browns weren’t done there as the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft started and Cleveland was still looking to move down. They traded with the Tennessee Titans—ironically a team that traded out of No. 1 and then traded back up into the top-10—to move down to No. 15 overall. At that spot, the Browns were then able to address one of their biggest needs by adding talent on the outside in Baylor Bears wide receiver Corey Coleman.

Given that the Browns could use just about anyone in Cleveland, Coleman would’ve always been a good pick. But he truly does fit one of their needs on that team right now, which only makes that pick look better. Moving on to Day 2 of the NFL Draft, though, the Browns now have to look to maximize the assets they’ve garnered.

With Rounds 2 and 3 taking place on Saturday during Day 2 of the NFL Draft, the Browns will have four total picks to work with, starting off Day 2 by selecting at No. 32 overall and then following that throughout the day at pick Nos. 65, 76, and 77. We’ll see if Cleveland can remain wise in this situation and continue to move in a positive direction to start this rebuild.
