Browns enter final day of NFL draft with 5 picks

BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns have one last day - and five more picks - to improve their roster.

Cleveland enters Saturday's third and final day of the NFL draft with two fourth-round picks, two sixth-round picks and one in the seventh, and it's possible the team could use one of them on a quarterback to groom for the future. There are still quality QBs available, including Baylor's Bryce Petty and UCLA's Brett Hundley.

The Browns addressed both sides of the ball on Friday, taking Utah defensive end Nate Orchard in the second round and Miami running back Duke Johnson and Washington State defensive tackle Xavier Cooper in the third.

Orchard was second in the nation last season with 18 1/2 sacks and he'll move to outside linebacker in the Browns' 3-4 system.

Johnson left Miami after three seasons but not before he became the school's career rushing leader.
