The 2024 NFL Draft begins on Thursday, but for the Browns, the fun begins on Friday night. This will be the last draft without a first-round pick for Cleveland. The Browns currently have six picks, but I expect them to trade down at some point during the draft to accumulate an additional pick possibly in the fourth round. I also expect one or both of their seventh-round picks to be involved in a trade. As for acquiring future picks, the Browns currently have eight picks in 2025 and seven in 2026. In 2025 they have one in each of the first four rounds, two in the sixth round and two in the seventh round. Cleveland has no fifth-round pick in 2025. As for 2026, they have one pick in each round. Here’s my final mock draft for 2024 with the age of the player and their Relative Activity Score (RAS).

Pick 54. Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU, age 21, RAS 9.40. Suamataia has good lateral movement to redirect pass rushers. Good quickness in outside zone pass blocking and good acceleration as a pulling tackle. He had two years of starting experience at BYU. Will need to work on his hand placement.

Pick 85. Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington, age 22, RAS 8.84. Polk is a very consistent route runner. At 6’1″, 203 lbs., already has an NFL body type. Once the ball is in the air, he creates space and has strong hands to make contested catches. He can track down and finish deep throws. A very good run blocker.

Pick 156. Ben Sennott, TE, Kansas State, age 22, RAS 9.73. Sinnott has the ability to add to the passing game. A very good blocker who has the quickness to compete against man coverage. Can move the chains with his run-after-the-catch ability.

Pick 206. Brandon Coleman, OG, TCU, age unknown, RAS 9.97. Coleman was a three-year starter and a team captain in 2023. As for roster flexibility, will be drafted as a guard, but has the ability to play tackle. His play at tackle will help him in pass protection as a guard where he has good technique and hand use.

Pick 227. Jaylen Harrell, ED, Michigan, age 22, RAS 8.46. Harrell has good quickness as an open-field tackler. Has a legitimate pass-rushing spin move and has the strength to detach from blockers. Developmental player.

Pick 243. Jaylon Carlies, S, Missouri, age 23, RAS 8.26. Carlies can make the transition from safety to linebacker. Has the size (6’3″, 227 lbs.) to wipe out blockers and is a force in run defense. Has the size and hand strength to take on big receivers.

Let me know what you think. Enjoy the draft and Go Browns.
