It is Saturday, and that means rounds 4-7 of the 2019 NFL Draft will take place for the Cleveland Browns and the rest of the teams in the NFL. The action starts at 12:00 PM ET, and teams will have 5 minutes to make their selections (compensatory picks will last 4 minutes).
We will have all of your Browns-related coverage on the draft here at Dawgs By Nature throughout the weekend. There will be individual posts about each draft pick that Cleveland makes, or any other relevant news. This thread will act as a “live blog” of sorts, with short one-liners about the latest small rumors, picks, or trades involving Cleveland or other NFL teams. You should also use the comments section as your NFL Draft open thread! (Newest updates will be at the top of the live blog below)

Sources: The Vikings are going into Day 3 of the draft open to, but not actively shopping, deals for their more expensive veteran players.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 27, 2019
They’ve gotten calls on TE Kyle Rudolph and CBs Xavier Rhodes and Trey Waynes. Stay tuned.
With the Jets short on third-day picks, Darron Lee is still available https://t.co/04GYtLB6rt— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 27, 2019
The only reason why Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is available is because “many” teams weren’t comfortable with him in the interview process. Some team will get a steal on Day 3.— Jonah Tuls (@JonahTulsNFL) April 27, 2019
