This post will be updated throughout the NFL Draft weekend to provide a quick summary of all of the players the Cleveland Browns selected.

Here are the Browns' draft picks we are tracking -- they do not have a Day 1 pick. You can check out all of the odds for this year’s draft courtesy of our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook.


Day 2 Picks (Friday)

Round 3, No. 68 overall: CB Martin Emerson, Mississippi State - He’s a big cornerback at 6-2, 201 lbs, but it’s unknown where he fits in for an immediate impact since the team already has Denzel Ward, Greg Newsome, and Troy Hill for the next several years. His physicality can help in the run game, so maybe the team has another role anticipated for him. Read more about the pick.

Round 3, No. 78 overall: EDGE Alex Wright, UAB - At 6-5, 271 lbs, Wright was solid value in the third round. He was statistically one of the most disruptive pass rushers in college football and also played the run well. Wright has a high ceiling, but the expectation is that he will be a rotational player behind DE Myles Garrett and whoever else Cleveland signs to be a starter. Read more about the pick.

Round 3, No. 99 overall: WR David Bell, Purdue - At 6-1, 201 lbs, Bell was also graded as a third round pick. He has good size and does a lot of the “little things” well, although he doesn’t have explosive speed. He could be good depth for the receiving room right away. Read more about the pick.


Day 3 Picks (Saturday)

Round 4, No. 108 overall: DT Perrion Winfrey, Oklahoma - At 6-4, 292 lbs, Winfrey had a tremendous Senior Bowl performance, showing off how dominant he can be at his best. The power and force he can bring is attractive and showcasing of an NFL-starting defensive tackle, but his key will be working on consistency and discipline. Read more about the pick.

Round 4, No. 124 overall: K Cade York, LSU - The Browns have their new kicker! Sure, the fourth round could have been a pinch early, but sometimes you have that flexibility to grab him a round early just in case someone else had intentions to take him. York was the top-ranked kicker in this year’s draft, so now we’ll see how he stacks up in a division full of great kickers. Read more about the pick.

Round 5, No. 156 overall: RB Jerome Ford, Cincinnati - Running back isn’t a position of need for Cleveland this year. They already have a great duo in Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, and D’Ernest Johnson has been a solid third back too. Demetric Felton is also on the roster. However, this could be a forward-thinking pick. While Chubb is here long-term, 2022 is the final year that Hunt and Johnson are under contract. Both of those guys probably won’t be re-signed for 2023, so Ford can be groomed as one of their replacements. Read more about the pick.

Round 6, No. 202 overall: WR Michael Woods, Oklahoma - At 6-1, 198 lbs, Woods is the second wide receiver taken by the Browns. Now the room gets a little fuller, although we did learn that Demetric Felton won’t be at the position this year. He has some vertical speed, but that’s also what Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz bring to the table. I view him as some training camp competition. Read more about the pick.

Round 7, No. 223 overall: DE Isiah Thomas, Oklahoma - It’s an Oklahoma Sooner type of day! At 6-4, 266 lbs, Thomas was the team’s third Sooner of the day, and he’s the Browns’ second defensive end of the draft. He will compete for a spot in the rotation. Read more about the pick.

Round 7, No. 246 overall: C Dawson Deaton, Texas Tech - To conclude the Browns’ draft this year, they selected a guy who can compete at backup center after the departure of JC Tretter. Read more about the pick.
