Browns on the clock with Nos. 1, 12 picks in 2017 NFL Draft

The Browns are on the clock.

For the first time since 2000 and third time since the franchise returned in 1999, the Browns hold the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. And they won't just be evaluating first-round talent for the top pick, as they also carry Philadelphia's first-rounder, which sits at No. 12 overall.

It marks the 10th time in franchise history and fourth time since 2012 the Browns hold multiple first-round picks. It's the first time since 1962 the Browns have held two picks in the top 12.

The Browns received Philadelphia's first-round pick in a trade one month before the 2016 draft. The Browns gave up the No. 2 pick in last year's draft and a conditional 2017 fourth-round selection for Philadelphia's first-round picks in 2016 and 2017, third- and fourth-round picks in 2016 and a 2018 second-rounder.

The Browns carry multiple picks in the second round, too, because of last year's Day 1 trade with the Titans. Ultimately, Cleveland will have five picks in the top 65.

The Browns' final total of draft picks won't be finalized until the NFL announces the distribution of compensatory picks. On top of the Eagles and Titans picks, Cleveland holds the Patriots' fifth-round selection, which was surrendered in an August trade for Barkevious Mingo. The Browns also have four of their Day 3 picks going elsewhere: New England - Conditional pick (Trade for LB Jamie Collins), Philadelphia - 4th or 5th round (Trade for 2016 No. 2 overall pick), San Francisco - 6th or 7th round (Trade for P Andy Lee), Carolina - 7th round (Trade for P Andy Lee). The seventh round pick Carolina acquired from Cleveland was originally owned by the Colts, who traded it to Cleveland for DL Billy Winn before the 2015 season.

The top 20 of this year's draft is set and the remainder will be settled throughout the playoffs.
