The Cleveland Browns are scheduled to make their first selection in the 2021 NFL draft at No. 26 overall in the first round this Thursday. But the schedule can be altered by a trade, as often happens with Cleveland’s draft slots.
The Browns have a colorful history of making draft-day trades. The moves haven’t always worked out in the end, but that’s a different story. The willingness to make moves is something to strongly consider with GM Andrew Berry and a war chest of nine selections entering this year’s draft.
Here are a few potential moves Berry and the Browns could make this week, with an eye towards keeping them as realistic as possible for a hypothetical scenario.
