If things stay the way they are right now, the Browns will kickoff tonight’s second round of the NFL Draft with the 32nd overall pick. While reports say the team has been fielding calls on the pick, there’s another report that the team is looking to acquire EVEN MORE picks for the remaining six rounds of the draft.
#Browns have 11 picks total, today and tomorrow. I'm told they want to acquire at least 4-6 more. … What's the record for most picks ever?

The Browns are already busy enough with the picks they have, but adding another 4 to 6 more picks would mean they have possibly up to 17 picks over the next two days, meaning on a 53-man roster that’s over 30 percent of the players would be rookies if they all make the team (highly unlikely).
Hard to think about, but probably another big reason many feel the team is going to go through a lot of growing pains in 2016.
