The Cleveland Browns had a rough Week 8 losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in rather humiliating style and after that the Odell Beckham Jr. daytime drama brought a dark cloud over the franchise, however things are searching for for our cherished Browns.
After revealing the release of Beckham, Cleveland took their disappointments out on the Cincinnati Bengals and the bright side kept coming as they revealed the agreement extensions for Wyatt Teller and Joel Bitonio for the long term, however that’s not what we are highlighting today.
The Browns have relatively nailed their very first 2 choices in the 2021 NFL Draft and despite the fact that we are just midway through their novice seasons, it appears safe to state that the very first 2 rounds were a success and we are going to highlight what PFF and others need to state.
Greg Newsome II
The Cleveland Browns chosen Greg Newsome II with the 26th total choice out of Northwestern and he has actually measured up to the choice in a huge method. Brent Sobleski of Bleacher Report just recently composed “Greg Newsome II is the league’s best rookie outside cornerback in coverage.”
According to PFF, Newsome has actually just enabled a remarkably low 173 lawns in his very first 5 starts. If you require anymore evidence of Newsome’s abilities and preparedness to handle the NFL, simply take a look at his efficiency versus the Bengals and their elite duo in Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase.

In the 2nd round, the Cleveland Browns chosen Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah out of Notre Dame. Owusu-Koramoah was considered as a first-round possibility in the majority of circles and has actually gone beyond expectations. PFF just recently launched their leading 15 ranked novices and the young weapon for the Fighting Irish presently sits as the 6th finest with a grade of 81.1.
Unfortunately, Owusu-Koramoah has actually been handling an injury considering that week 6, however as PFF notes “the second-rounder still has three more pass breakups than any other rookie linebacker this season.”
