The Cleveland Browns traded 2016 first-round pick Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, which many people noted really highlights the team’s awful record with first-round picks in recent history.
ESPN’s Field Yates broke down the five-year period between 2012-16, and it’s really not a pretty sight.
Browns 1st rounders, 2012-2016:
Trent Richardson: traded in 1 yr
Brandon Weeden: cut in 2 yrs
Barkevious Mingo: traded in 3 yrs
Justin Gilbert: traded in 2 yrs
Johnny Manziel: cut in 2 yrs

Teams that are bad can only dream to have plenty of picks and high ones also, Browns always do and they seem to make wrong choices time and after time it’s insane I think this year they win 5-7 games tho ! So they might be on rise
