Just like the Browns made my favorite move in free agency with John Johnson, they just made my favorite pick in the draft with Greg Newsome— Mike Renner (@PFF_Mike) April 30, 2021
Newsome to Cleveland was just as obvious as Najee Harris to Pittsburgh. A natural fit.— Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler) April 30, 2021
And I wouldn't be surprised if Newsome has a Jedrick Wills' type of impact on the 2021 team.
