Cleveland Browns: Winners of the 2017 NFL Draft

The Cleveland Browns have been the joke of the NFL the last 20 years. They have had 23 different starting quarterbacks in recent years. They even drafted a mediocre quarterback in Deshone Kizer out of Notre Dame.

Outside of the quarterback, the Browns were the big winners in the 2017 NFL Draft. They drafted some of the biggest names at the biggest positions and then some.

It all went down when Cleveland drafted Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett with the first overall pick. If defenses truly do win championships, picking up a defensive end is going in the right directions.

While defenses win championships, offenses win games. The Browns picked up a stud in the draft when they drafted Jabrill Peppers out of Michigan. Peppers is the most versatile player in the draft.

He can pair up with Corey Coleman as a receiver. He could also line up behind whatever quarterback will start Week 1. He’d also be great for their defense and can return kicks and punts. Anything the Browns need, Peppers can provide.

The third big name the Browns drafted was tight end David Njoku out of Miami. Njoku has shown to be on the better tight ends in this draft. He will be a great addition to the Browns offense.

He caught 43 passes for 698 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016. Those numbers were way up from his 2015 season where he only caught one touchdown pass.

Cleveland also drafted defensive back Caleb Brantley out of Florida. He was a highly anticipated defensive back coming out of school. He recorded 31 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 2016. There’s just one problem with Brantley.

He is currently being investigated for allegedly knocking a 32 year old woman unconscious. If the NFL and Browns can look past it, they got a steal in the draft getting him in the fifth round.

Despite it being months before the NFL season kicks off, the Browns are looking good on both sides of the ball. Now if they can find the ideal quarterback, they could get back on track after all this time off.
