The Cleveland Browns are getting ready for their first preseason game in a season in which they believe they can compete for a Super Bowl. In the past, a majority of the focus at training camp has been on what players might be worthy of starting on a quality level team. In the past, the Browns were not that quality-level team.
In 2021, Cleveland is a very good team with, perhaps, the best roster in the entire NFL. The start of training camp has done nothing to change that thinking. In fact, the start of training camp has reinforced the idea that this season should be a very good one for the team.
That doesn’t mean looking ahead is a bad thing. While the NFL draft has been “the Browns Super Bowl” for a long time, that is no longer true. Yet the draft still holds a lot of importance for the team building a long-term championship window.
With training camp underway, we have new information available that impacts who the Browns would be drafting if the 2022 NFL draft happened today.
