Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Cleveland Browns:

Round 1 (No. 26 overall) - Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern: The Wildcats produce two first-rounders for the first time as he follows Rashawn Slater into the pros. Newsome features sub-4.4 speed and copious swagger while joining a team with few holes but a fierce pass rush. Newsome should join Denzel Ward and Troy Hill to give Cleveland a wicked nickel package.

Round 2 (52, from Bears through Panthers) - Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame: Cleveland trades up (and surrenders a third-rounder as part of its Round 2 flip with Carolina) to end JOK's free fall. A 6-1, 221-pounder, Owusu-Koramoah compares himself to the Colts' Darius Leonard and also doles out some thunderous hits. He can defend in space and cover large sectors of the field for a Browns defense that continues to add studs. Draft tracker

Round 3 (91, from Saints) - Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn: He'll bring more speed to Cleveland's passing attack, where slot man Jarvis Landry doesn't supply all that much. Schwartz will make defenses pay for stacking the box against this Nick Chubb-led rushing attack. Draft tracker

Round 4 (110, from Eagles) - James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati

Round 4 (132) - Tommy Togiai, DT, Ohio State

Round 5 (153, from Lions) - Tony Fields II, LB, West Virginia

Round 5 (169, from Rams) - Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia

Round 6 (211) - Demetric Felton, RB, UCLA
