It’s easy for Cleveland Browns fans to love the team’s haul of talent from the 2021 NFL draft. Adding two players often regarded as top-20 overall talents with picks No. 26 and 52 is indeed an impressive feat from Browns GM Andrew Berry and his staff.
It seems the rest of the football world really appreciates and adores what Berry and the Browns did over draft weekend in Cleveland, too.
On Twitter, Rene Bugner compiled the draft grades from 18 different national NFL draft analysts and aggregated them out to a GPA. On a 4.0 scale, the Browns landed a very impressive 3.89 overall. Only the Chicago Bears, headlined by a trade up for Ohio State QB Justin Fields, topped the Browns.
Of the 18 analysts, which included Touchdown Wire’s Mark Schofield and Doug Farrar as well as Draft Wire’s Luke Easterling, only ESPN’s Mel Kiper gave the Browns a grade below an “A”.
