NFL draft: Best available at 5 positions the Browns might draft from Thursday

The Browns join the NFL draft fun so we keep track of five positions they might select from

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The fun for Cleveland Browns fans is not expected to start until almost 10 PM on Friday night with pick No. 74 in the 2023 NFL draft. GM Andrew Berry gets a chance to be busy during the NFL draft after that selection with eight picks including two each in rounds three, four and five.

Unfortunately for Browns fans, unless Berry trades up, 73 prospects will be gone before their team gets to bring in a new player. Thankfully, while most believe the top of this year’s draft is a little weak, the middle rounds are believed to have a lot of depth.

Below you will find prospects that were still available as Day 2 of the NFL draft started. As tonight goes on, we will be updating this post so that the best available are clear. A combination of SB Nation’s Top 200 big board and individual rankings of positions were used to help create these lists.
