When Might the Browns’ Pick on Day 2?

Teams will have 10 minutes to pick in the first round, 7 minutes in the second round, 5 minutes in rounds three-six, and 4 minutes in round seven. If the Browns do not make a trade on Day 2, here is an estimate of when they will be on the clock, based on last year’s corresponding picks:

Browns Big Board

Fans have been voting on the Top 50 players they would like to see the Cleveland Browns draft, if we had the top pick(s) in the draft. The hope would be that at least a few of these names are still on the board when the Browns are on the clock in the third round. Note: Quarterbacks were excluded from the poll.

Community Mock Draft

Here are the picks from the 2023 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft:

Picks 1-4 | Picks 5-8 | Picks 9-12 | Picks 13-16 | Picks 17-20 | Picks 21-24 | Picks 25-28 | Picks 29-31 | Jumping to Browns’ 3rd Round Picks
