Embed Every NFL draft, the Browns become a Rube Goldberg machine of bad decision-making. click over hereIt’s impressive how the franchise’s draft futility has continued through various owners, general managers and head coaches. With two first-round picks, Cleveland should be positioned to come out of the 2017 draft with at least one future Pro Bowler. Of course, two first-round picks also gives the Browns double the chance to screw it up. In 2012, they came out of the first round with Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden, and two years later, they grabbed Johnny Manziel and Justin Gilbert with their two first-rounders. Cleveland showed some progress, though, when it selected Danny Shelton in 2015 and followed up with Cameron Erving. With two top-12 picks, the Browns can focus a little less on need and instead target the best player available with the No. 1 selection. Quarterback is obviously a priority for Cleveland in 2017, but the team can afford to wait a little later before surveying the landscape at the position.
