As of today, Friday, Feb. 15, the Browns have 10 picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. Not nine. Not 11. Ten.
Here’s how it breaks down.
The Browns hold their own picks in Rounds 1-6. We know the first pick will be No. 17, the second-rounder will be No. 49 and the third-rounder will be No. 80.The Browns own the Patriots’ third-round pick and fifth-round pick. The third-rounder came in the Danny Shelton trade and falls at No. 95. The fifth-rounder came in the Josh Gordon trade.Cleveland owns Jacksonville’s fifth-round pick because of the Carlos Hyde trade.The Browns also own a seventh-round pick from Jacksonville because of the Cody Kessler trade. That pick was initially considered conditional, but the requirements were made to officially give it to the Browns.
So that gets us to 10. Here are the picks Cleveland DOESN’T have.
Cleveland sent its own seventh-rounder to New Orleans in a trade for defensive lineman Devaroe Lawrence.The seventh-round pick Cleveland acquired from San Francisco in the Shon Coleman trade went to New England in the Gordon trade.The seventh-round pick Cleveland acquired from Pittsburgh in a 2017 trade for wide receiver Sammie Coates went to Miami in the Jarvis Landry trade.
I thought we had 11 along with others but, I guess we're wrong according to the above. This is going to be where we see just how good our scouting and John Dorsey's magic will be.
