Browns’ 2022 NFL Draft class led by Martin Emerson Jr. named 17th-best

The Cleveland Browns are now preparing for the 2023 NFL Draft, but this did not stop ESPN from ranking the most productive rookie classes from the 2022 NFL Draft. And despite not picking until the third round, the Browns’ class, led by Martin Emerson Jr., fell 17th on their list.

“The Browns had a surprisingly strong draft class considering the absence of a first- or second-round pick. The star is third-round cornerback Martin Emerson Jr., who played 72% of Cleveland’s defensive snaps as the third corner. Emerson allowed just 5.3 yards per target and a 47% completion rate in coverage. The Browns also got a lot of playing time out of edge rusher Alex Wright (50% of snaps) and defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey (31% of snaps). Wide receiver David Bell played less than expected but still racked up 24 catches for 214 yards. Kicker Cade York was above average on kickoffs but below average on field goals. He finished the year 24-for-32, including three misses from inside 40 yards.”
