Today, we will be continuing our look at every team’s 2020 NFL draft performance with the Cleveland Browns draft. The 2020 NFL Draft has come and gone, and 255 collegiate athletes have fulfilled their lifelong dream of hearing their name called to join an NFL roster. In this series, we will be looking at each NFL team’s individual draft and reviewing just how well the team did at adding the next wave of talent to their roster.
For part eight of this series, we will be looking at the Cleveland Browns draft.
Browns Draft: The Selections
1st Round, Pick 10: Jedrick Wills, Offensive...
NFL Draft: Who Should Have Gone First?
The 2020 NFL Draft remains the most unique event of its kind. While teams have high hopes for their selections, whether or not they made the right choice is unclear.
Cincinnati sure hopes they made the right selection by taking Joe Burrow No. 1 overall. However, Chase Young, who went No. 2 to Washington, was considered the draft’s top pro prospect. Other quarterbacks dotted the top-10, including Miami’s Tua Tagovailoa at No. 5 and Los Angeles’s Justin Herbert at No. 6.
Despite instant draft grades and talk, most pundits and analysts normally reserve fully evaluating...
Early Round Instant Impact NFL Rookies
Going from college standout to NFL rookie is not easy. The 2020 NFL Draft class will be starting further behind than usual, considering a lack of rookie mini camps thanks to COVID-19. Through video conferencing and virtual workouts, these NFL rookies are relocating across the country and trying to transition to the professional ranks amid a pandemic.
While some of these selections might have been head-scratchers back in April, there’s clear opportunity for success for some. General managers envision how these players fit, while coaches and coordinators adjust game plans and scheme fits to maximize...
Of all the teams towards the top of the 2020 NFL draft, few will face the pressure like the Detroit Lions.
Leaders of the Lions
After many dormant years, Detroit looked for a difference maker to take over their franchise. They presumably found their man in Bob Quinn, who was hired as General Manager in 2016. Management saw a bright future in the former Patriot's Director of Pro Scouting.
But, as many fans would point out, Quinn's regime in the Motor City started out stalling.
Some blamed the coach he inherited in Jim Caldwell. But, in 2018, Quinn was able to alleviate that...
The Green Bay Packers draft class in 2020 is a big one for the future of the team. Looking to add long term help, while improving immediately isn't easy. The team made waves with its first round pick, selecting Aaron Rodgers' potential replacement.
Closing the gap on the top teams is difficult, but they're within striking distance. Here, we take a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from the 2020 Packers draft.
Packers Draft: The Good
Bulking Up The Offensive Line
With three 6th round picks, the Packers added three straight offensive linemen. One center, one guard, and a college...
The 2020 NFL Draft lacked the pomp and pageantry of previous years, but prospects were picked nonetheless. All 32 clubs spent the last three days selecting these new players in an effort to rebuild and reshape their future fortunes. In addition, the virtual NFL Draft served as a fundraiser, raising more the $100 million in support of Covid-19 relief efforts.
2020 NFL Draft: By the Numbers
255 players were selected over the course of the 2020 NFL Draft. In all, 96 teams across all three divisions of the NCAA had at least one player selected.
For the 14th straight year, the SEC...
The 2020 NFL Draft continued on Friday night, with rounds two and three unfollowing virtually for all fans to follow. NFL Commissioner revealed prior to the start of the evening that the Draft-A-Thon raised a whopping $85 million for Covid-19 relief efforts. So here's a quick draft Day 2 roundup.
Round 1 of the NFL Draft was the most watched night of the draft.
The SEC continued to rewrite the draft record books as NFL teams pilfered their players throughout the Draft Day 2.
Through the first three rounds of the draft, the Tigers and Crimson Tide combined for 19 total...
With almost three months remaining until the 2020 NFL Draft, I figured I could make a 1st Round Mock Draft (without trades) to see how it could play out. It's not a prediction but rather what would I do if I were the GMs of these teams.
Note: Clicking on the players will take you to a short highlight video on YouTube of a said player if one exists.
With the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select...
1.Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
Let's start this 1st Round Mock Draft with Burrow. I would be shocked if this...
The NFL Draft is more than picking players to build a foundation for and bolster a teams' roster; it's about finding value in the pick itself. While 254 picks may seem like a vast amount of draftees to choose from, it's no surprise that the players who are most likely to make an immediate impact are chosen early. Here are my top ten players that ended up falling and becoming steals in this past weekend's draft.
10: DE Jachai Polite - New York Jets, Round 3, Pick 68
With an outstanding final season at the University of Florida, the edge-rusher recorded...
