The hype surrounding the Cleveland Browns is real. In addition to the expectations that the franchise is finally ready to ascend into relevancy comes a report that the city of Cleveland was awarded the 2021 NFL Draft.

This report comes via Jordan Zirm of Uproxx.

It comes just hours after NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport shared that the NFL would be making an announcement, and that Cleveland is among the teams that have been considered in the past.

Following in Vegas’ footsteps is a tall order. Yet the city of Cleveland is as die-hard a sports town as there is in America. It should be a blast.
