The Cleveland Browns have not been the drafting success they were supposed to be under Andrew Berry.
The Cleveland Browns are entering their fourth draft under Andrew Berry and it’s fair to say the team has not had much success with Berry as general manager. He inherited a squad built by John Dorsey, and he took that team to the playoffs. Then he started mucking around, letting players go, and making grand changes to the team.
The free agent signings haven’t been great, so far the big signings every year have failed to prove their worth for the team. Austin Hooper, Jadeveony Clowney, John Johnson III and others have all biffed it pretty good. Not all of them, Jack Conklin and Anthony Walker have been solid, and so was Troy Hill.
His record on trades isn’t great so far either, and while some more recent trades still need time to shake out before we have a good idea of what’s what, we can say for sure that his drafting record has not been good.
Through three drafts, he’s arguably only found four players worth keeping, two of which are starting caliber for sure. That’s it. And that was with first and second-round picks, the two rounds of the NFL Draft where you’re likely to find starters and contributors. Now the team is entering its fourth NFL Draft with Berry at the head of the table, and its second without a first or second-round pick. And just like every year prior, Berry needs to find multiple starters to fill the holes the team still has.
We’re not very confident that he can do that, and the following players are why.
Not every drafted player will appear on either list. Some players aren’t good, or bad, they’re just fine. We’ve only been looking at the best and worst of each class.
