2020 NFL Draft

Browns complete largest draft class since 1979 with 14 picks

Already positioned with double-digit picks after they were rewarded three compensatory picks, the Browns traded their way to the biggest draft class in 37 years.

Cleveland put the wraps on its 14-man class with the selection of Scooby Wright, a linebacker from Arizona, with the 250th overall pick. He was the ninth selection on a busy Saturday that included two more trades, four fourth-round selections and four fifth-rounders.

"I think it has been a tremendous few days for us," Browns coach Hue Jackson said. "We set out to strengthen our team, to improve our team in a lot of different areas, and I think we have accomplished that."

Cleveland's five trades of picks not only provided record returns for 2016, but also set the team up to have similar hauls in the years to come. The Browns carry extra first- and second-round picks in 2017 and an additional second-round pick in 2018. Cleveland is also poised to receive a similar number of compensatory picks in 2017.

"Not only is it about picking talented players but people that really fit in your organization," Browns chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta said. "As you can see probably from the five guys that were up here earlier today, as much as we are focused on talent, we are really also focused on character."

Here's a full breakdown of the class of 2016, a group that includes four wide receivers, an injection of pass rushers and at least one player for every position group on the field outside of running backs and specialists.
