This three-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft has the Browns trading up.

The Super Bowl is over, and that can only mean one thing: Every Browns fan in the world is waiting for their team to earn a berth in Super Bowl 56.

The window is open for Baker Mayfield and company to extend the Browns’ season into February, but they’re going to need help from the front office. While the Browns are going to be in the thick of thing sin the AFC, they’ve still go to contend with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, as well as Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.

Cleveland couldn’t close the gap with either squad this past season, so it will be imperative for Andrew Berry to find the players to put Cleveland over the hump.

Free agency will help a little, but hitting a bulls-eye or two in this spring’s draft is what can take the Browns to a different level (trading for J.J. Watt would do that as well).

This three-round 2021 mock draft from mostly sees the Browns load up on defense. Here’s the way I see it breaking down.
