Updating the Browns' draft picks in 2017, 2018 after big trade

Cleveland parted with one of its 2017 draft picks in a trade last week with the Texans, but it's overall total of 11 didn't change.

And, of course, the team's positioning at the most important part of the draft just keeps getting better.

The Browns parted with a fourth-round compensatory pick (142 overall) in a trade with Houston that netted the Texans' second-round pick in 2018, quarterback Brock Osweiler and a 2017 sixth-round pick.

The Texans' sixth-round pick was originally owned by Chicago -- acquired in a 2015 trade for tight end Khari Lee -- so it comes in at the fourth spot in the sixth round, No. 188 overall.

That's the only change to this year's draft order for the Browns, who own the No. 1 pick, No. 12 pick and five of the first 65. Here's the full rundown, including a look at 2018, which features another four picks in the first two rounds.
