Andrew Berry's Pre-Draft Press Conference

Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Andrew Berry held his annual pre-draft press conference on April 18 to discuss a number of topics surrounding the draft.

One of the biggest questions surrounding this year's draft comes with the second-round pick. Over the last two years, Berry has used the Browns' second-round pick in deals to either move around in the draft or acquire a player in a trade. Berry said depending on how the draft board falls, he will have a better sense of whether they will use the pick about 10 picks ahead of No. 54.

He also discussed acquiring a second seventh-round pick in a trade with the Titans and the organization's approach to late-round draft picks.

Browns' Most Recent Second-Round Selections

While the Browns have not made a second-round pick the previous two years, they used their second rounder in 2021 on LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah at No. 52 and S Grant Delpit in 2020 at No. 44. Both have established themselves as key pieces of their defense. Owusu-Koramoah had a breakout 2023 season and elevated his role in the linebacker room, while Delpit signed a 3-year contract extension with the Browns in Dec. 2023.

Outlook on the 2025 Draft

The Browns will have a first-round draft pick in 2025 for the first time since 2021 and currently hold eight total picks. They have their own picks in Rounds 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6. They have two more sixth-round picks, one via Minnesota and another via Detroit. They also have a seventh-round pick via Minnesota.
