The 2022 NFL Draft is finally here. But this year’s gathering will be far different from what Browns fans are used to. The Browns aren’t scheduled to pick until No. 44 after they used their first-round pick, No. 13, as part of the price to get Deshaun Watson from the Texans. They didn’t have first-round picks in 2008 and 2019. That doesn’t mean they will stay at 44, but it’s where they stand right now. This is also one of the more unpredictable drafts in recent memory. There’s no clear-cut No. 1 selection and two teams are scheduled to make 40 percent of the picks in the top 10.
