Terrell Owens, Mike Vrabel picked where Browns draft in third round

As the time nears to rally the draft wagon, the Browns own eight picks after the first round, mostly at slots that might suggest someone anonymous.

All eight of those post-Round 1 slots have produced someone who for one reason or another became famous.

In Part 2 of the series, we delve into the Browns’ two scheduled spots in Round 3. We bring to the stage the names that get everyone’s attention. We take a quick look at the league’s recent picks at specific spots and recall interesting names from past Browns drafts, all with an aim of putting Cleveland’s 2021 draft in context.
