Head To Head Cleveland Browns 2023 Roster Draft

During the Browns Brawl podcast, my co host Dan Baker and I did a 22-man Cleveland Browns roster draft of every player who played a snap for the Browns in 2023. 

We came up with the idea since so many people played a snap for a team battling injuries all year, so we wanted to top off the season with a little bit of fun. 

We had to do some flexibility with some players, like moving tackles to guards to fit everyone for the rosters. 

For this exercise, we took whoever played a snap. For example, Nick Chubb went down in Week Two, but we acted like he played the entire season for this and how he would have done. 

The rosters were 11 offensive players: QB, RB, two tackles, two guards, center, tight end, two receivers, and flex RB/WR/TE. 

The defense has 11 players: two DEs, two DTs, two LBs, two CBs, two safeties, and flex LB/CB/S.

It was a snake draft, meaning whoever had the second pick in the first round also had the first pick in the second round, and so on. 

Team One had the first pick and, of course picked, defensive player of the year Myles Garrett, and Team Two was on the clock for back-to-back picks and took running back Nick Chubb and receiver Amari Cooper.
