The Browns selected Baker Mayfield with the #1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
As most football fans already know, the 2018 NFL Draft is being held Thursday night at Jerry's World in Dallas, Texas where all 32 teams look to make their teams a little better with the addition of college prospects & hopefully future stars.
The Browns once again had the first pick overall, just like last year, and took Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield. The New York Giants followed up with running back Saquon Barkley at pick #2, and the Jets took USC quarterback Sam Darnold at #3. The Brown then again had the 4th pick and grabbed arguably the best defensive corner available with Ohio State’s Denzel Ward.
For the first time in history, the draft saw 4 quarterbacks taken within the top 10 picks, and Notre Dame saw 2 Offensive lineman go top 10 as well.
