Browns hold No. 1, No. 4 pick in 2018 NFL Draft

Cleveland holds four picks in the top 35, 12 overall

PITTSBURGH — The Browns are on the clock.

Cleveland officially owns the first and fourth overall picks in the 2018 NFL Draft after Sunday’s 28-24 loss to the Steelers handed the franchise its first-ever winless season.

The Browns (0-16) clinched the No. 1 pick with last week’s loss to the Bears on Christmas Eve and own Houston’s first-round pick following a draft-day trade with the Texans — who finished 4-12 this season — back in April.

Cleveland owns five selections in the first two rounds, including Houston’s second-round pick thanks to a trade for quarterback Brock Osweiler in March. The Browns also hold the Eagles’ second-round pick, which is the final piece of a blockbuster trade before the 2016 draft.

Because of those trades and a handful of others, Cleveland boasts 12 picks in this year’s draft.
