The Browns tapped offensive lineman Austin Corbett with the No. 33 overall, the first pick of the second round. At No. 35 overall, a pick obtained in last year's trade with the Houston Texans, general manager John Dorsey grabbed Georgia running back Nick Chubb. In the third round, the Browns drafted Miami defensive end and musical prodigyChad Thomas at No. 67 overall.
Chubb overcame a gruesome knee injury suffered during his sophomore season. Two years away from the injury, Chubb looked more like his early-career self in 2017, splitting carries with first-round pick Sony Michel.
Chubb should be in the rotation with Hyde off the bat and eventually take on the early-down and short-yardage work with Johnson as the satellite back. The Browns can get out of Hyde's three-year contract after one season.
With Mayfield, Chubb and Corbett added within the first 35 picks, the Browns already upgraded a lost offense with a bounty of picks still to come.
