2020 NFL Draft

10 players to know with Browns on the clock to start 2nd round

The first round is complete, and the Browns are on the clock and in a position of significant power.

As he conducted his press conference last night, Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said he'd already fielded calls of interest in Cleveland's No. 32 pick, the first selection of tonight's second round.

A number of talented players remain on the board. After all, the No. 32 pick is a first-rounder in most drafts. After a trade with the Titans, the Browns also carry three third-round picks (Nos. 65, 76 and 77).

Here are the 10 players -- five of whom were invited to Chicago for last night's first round -- to keep an eye on as the Browns evaluate their options at the start of the second round.

LB Reggie Ragland - Alabama

An old-school, thumper at inside linebacker, Ragland was the heart and soul of the Crimson Tide's national championship defense.

LB Myles Jack - UCLA

Medical questions surround the talented athlete who played on both sides of the ball for the Bruins. Still, his athleticism is considered to be among the best of any player in the entire draft.

DE Noah Spence - Eastern Kentucky

Perhaps the best remaining pass rusher, Spence has tackled off-field questions head on following a college career that began at Ohio State and ended in FCS obscurity.

DL A'Shawn Robinson - Alabama

One of three Alabama players who were invited to Chicago but undrafted in Thursday's first round, Robinson looks like he's a 12-year NFL veteran but carries the most potential of any of the Crimson Tide's draftable players, Nick Saban told NFL Network last night.

DL Jarran Reed - Alabama

Similar in a lot of ways to Robinson, Reed is the better pass rusher of the two. Both have 3-4 experience.

DL Chris Jones - Mississippi State

Another player who had to sweat it out in the Green Room all night, Jones is an athletic space-eater who could play anywhere on the line of a 3-4.

The Cleveland Browns selected Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman with the No. 15 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

QB Connor Cook - Michigan State

The Hinckley native had some first-round buzz but will have to settle for best quarterback available on Day 2. He could be a player of interest for teams looking to trade up into Cleveland's spot.

WR Michael Thomas - Ohio State

A big-bodied target who sits atop the second tier of receivers in this year's draft after four heard their name called in the second half of the first round.

TE Hunter Henry - Arkansas

For the second straight year, no tight end was selected in the first round. Henry is considered by just about every draft analyst to be the best at the position in 2016.

OL Jason Spriggs - Indiana

One of the most athletic tackles in the draft, Spriggs projects as a left tackle in the NFL. Longtime NFL executive and analyst Gil Brandt considers him to be one of the draft's most underrated prospects.
