Browns Head to Philly with First Pick in Draft
The Cleveland Browns head to Philadelphia next week with the first pick in the NFL Draft. At a press conference Wednesday, Browns Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown says he feels good about picking at number one. He says they’ve narrowed down the prospects but would not say if the team had decided who it will select.
Brown spoke positively of his meeting with Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett.
“We learned a lot about what makes him tick, what motivates him, how he spends his down time, how he spends his time with his teammates,” Brown says. “You can learn a lot. He is an enjoyable young man, very bright. Whatever team gets him, particularly if it’s us, would be proud to have him.”
Many consider Garrett the top prospect in the draft.
Brown says the team has no plan to trade for a veteran quarterback on or before draft weekend.
He adds, this year’s draft as well as future picks are part of a long term plan.
“We do think our roster will move in the right direction. It has been an exciting offseason, both in free agency and now as we head into draft a number of players in the amount of talent we will be able to add to the roster. I think we are positioning this team to be young and good and they will be together for a long time.”
The Browns also get the number 12 and 33 picks.
