It was a quiet night in Berea as for the first time since 2008 the Browns did not make a selection in the first round of the NFL Draft.
The team did have some chances to get back into the round, but GM John Dorsey told the media in the early hours of the morning that no deal came to fruition for the club.
“There were about three guys we were looking at that we thought may help us,” Dorsey said.
“To get up to the position where they were acquired at that time, I thought the compensation was too rich to move that far. I think we are in a position now that maybe you exercise a degree of patience in this thing and just see.
“We will start working tomorrow. We always are going to work at this thing to see if we can get up there, but the compensation package was just too much for us as an organization.”
The Browns do have eight picks over the next two days of the NFL Draft which kicks off Friday evening in Nashville, Tennessee.
