Day one of draft day was a great success for the Cleveland Browns with the pick of cornerback Greg Newsome from Northwestern. He’s a top-four CB and the Browns didn’t have to trade up to get him. GM Andrew Berry let the draft board come to him and the team got the CB they wanted. Excellent job by Andrew Berry. Now comes the most important days of the draft, day two and three. Berry proved last year a team can find great players on these days. The positions the Browns will target the next two days are wide receiver, defensive line, linebacker, safety, tight end and cornerback.

The Browns are in a great position for days two and three. They can draft the players they want, not the players they need. Andrew Berry could move around a little on both days or he could do what he did in round one and let the draft board come to him. Either way, the next two days are going to be fun for Browns fans.
