Cleveland Browns:

  • Browns find game-changing linebacker (Beacon Journal) - For years, the Browns had linebackers who couldn’t start for another NFL team. Certainly not a playoff-caliber NFL team. They weren’t game-changers. They didn’t create turnovers, didn’t make plays that led to victories. Those days appeared to end Friday night when the Browns traded up from No. 59 to draft Notre Dame linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah with the 52nd overall pick.
  • Browns surprise in third round with receiver Anthony Schwartz, what does it mean? (cleveland.com) - After going defense in free agency and in the first two picks in the draft, Kevin Stefanski now has a new toy for his offense. In the third round, the Browns grabbed wide receiver Anthony Schwartz, an elite sprinter at Auburn. Remember GM Andrew Berry’s theme for the offense – speed and more speed. Get faster on both sides of the ball. Schwartz is not a polished receiver. He is more of a guy for whom you seek creative ways to put the ball in his hands and let him run.
  • 8 players to watch during Day 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft (clevelandbrowns.com) - The Browns addressed both sides of the football in Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft by selecting LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah in Round 2 and WR Anthony Schwartz in Round 3. Now, Cleveland will round out the draft with six remaining picks for Day 3. Here’s who to watch on the final day of drafting.
  • Browns Have Entered Super Bowl Contention During 2021 NFL Draft (Bleacher Report) - Thus far in 2021, it’s a whole new ballgame. The adjustments are complete and the Cleveland Browns keep building through free agency and the draft, which is fittingly taking place in their backyard on the Lake Erie shoreline just as they become relevant on a Super Bowl-scale for the first time this century.
