Browns draft picks 2019: When does Cleveland pick? Full list of NFL Draft selections

After several years in the AFC North cellar, the Browns may be the favorites in the division in 2019 due to a late-season surge and the offseason acquisition of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in exchange for the 17th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.

More than whoever Cleveland might have taken with that pick, Beckham gives young quarterback Baker Mayfield another weapon to go along with running back Nick Chubb, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku.

The Browns’ first draft pick won’t come until the No. 49 overall selection, but that’s a trade most teams would make 10 times out of 10.

With the skill positions set, the Browns will focus their needs elsewhere, specifically at defensive back and offensive line. They gave up safety Jabrill Peppers and guard Kevin Zeitler in the Beckham deal. Barring any future trades, the Browns will select eight times in the NFL Draft.

Below is everything you need to know about the Browns’ 2019 draft, including when they pick and their biggest team needs. The list below will be updated throughout the draft as Cleveland makes its selections.

Browns’ NFL Draft team needs

According to SN’s Bill Bender:

  • Cornerback: Denzel Ward made the Pro Bowl as a rookie, but he also suffered two concussions. Briean Boddy-Calhoun and EJ Gaines left via free agency, so Terrance Mitchell and Eric Murray, brought over in a trade with Kansas City, are the best options.
  • Offensive tackle: Cleveland re-signed Greg Robinson, and Chris Hubbard was a good pickup last season, but the Browns could use depth to protect Mayfield, who took 25 sacks last season.
  • Edge rusher: The Browns traded for Olivier Vernon, who averages 7.2 sacks per season over the last five years. He is a solid compliment for Garrett, but this draft is loaded with first-round defensive line talent.
  • Safety: Former Packers defensive backs Morgan Burnett and Damarious Randall are the safeties now, but Burnett has started in just 14 games over the last two seasons. T.J. Carrie remains the nickel back, but there is room for more depth here.
  • Linebacker: Cleveland has room to add a linebacker or two after Jamie Collins left. Christian Kirksey, Joe Schobert and Genard Avery are a solid group, but there is room for an upgrade.
