The sample size is small, sure, but the Browns have handled their business when they hold the draft's 43rd overall pick.
The Browns didn't carry a first-round pick, but they made their first pick of the 1986 NFL Draft count when they selected Webster Slaughter, a wide receiver from San Diego State, with the 43rd pick. His impact was immediate, as he caught 40 passes for 577 yards on a Browns team that went 12-4, won the division and advanced to the AFC Championship.
Over six seasons with the Browns, Slaughter caught 305 passes for 4,834 yards and 27 touchdowns. His 1,236 yards in a 1989 Pro Bowl season was good for a franchise record that stood for years.
The second round has been good to the Browns in recent years. Two of their regular starters on the offensive line -- Joel Bitonio and Mitchell Schwartz -- were found in the second round, and so, too, were two regular defensive starters who logged a number of productive years with the Browns -- Jabaal Sheard and T.J. Ward.
