Draft

Super Bowl LIII gives Browns a little more clarity on where they’ll be picking in 2019 NFL Draft

The Patriots’ Super Bowl LIII win over the Rams on Sunday means the Browns now hold the 95th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Browns, who own New England’s third- and fifth-round picks, already knew they held the 17th pick in Day 1’s first round along with the 49th overall pick in the second round and No. 80 in the third. Sunday’s result assured the Patriots’ picks would fall last -- before compensatory picks -- in each of the draft’s seven rounds.

Cleveland acquired the pick in a March 2018 trade that sent former first-round pick Danny Shelton and a 2018 fifth-round pick to the Patriots. The Browns also own the Patriots’ fifth-round pick after a September 2018 trade that sent wide receiver Josh Gordon and a seventh-round pick to New England. That pick won’t be set until the NFL distributes its compensatory picks.

The Browns hold 10 picks in the 2019 draft. They own all of their picks in the first six rounds along with New England’s third- and fifth-rounders, Jacksonville’s fifth-round pick (Carlos Hyde trade) and a seventh-rounder from Jacksonville (Cody Kessler trade). The Browns traded their seventh-round pick to New Orleans before the season in a trade for defensive lineman Devaroe Lawrence.
