The Cleveland Browns active offseason continued on Saturday of the NFL draft. They drafted DT Perrion Winfrey, who had a passionate media availability time, and K Cade York while also trading down with the Minnesota Vikings to get a pick next year and a fifth-round pick this year.

The Browns also just traded CB Troy Hill back to the Los Angeles Rams to get another pick in 2023.

With pick #156, the one acquired from the Vikings, Cleveland selected RB Jerome Ford out of Cincinnati. Ford started at Alabama before transferring to the Bearcats for his final two seasons.

In 2021, Ford had his first chance to carry the load for a team. On 215 attempts, Ford rushed for 1,319 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Nick Chubb is locked up to a contract extension but Kareem Hunt is scheduled to be a free agent at the end of the season and D’Ernest Johnson hasn’t signed his restricted free agent tender.

Demetric Felton was drafted as a running back but played more as a receiver as a rookie.
