The most important draft in Browns history; the most important draft party in Browns history. It’s the peak of the Cleveland sports season and there’s no better way to seize the momentum than at the Cleveland Frowns NFL Draft Party at Gillespie’s Map Room on West 9th downtown, starting at 5:30 PM and lasting through the draft’s first round on Thursday, April 26.
Last year’s party went so well that we’ve dispensed with the formal contracts this time around. All we know for sure is that Regi said Jim Beam is sponsoring (which means they have to do better than the $4 Beam special we got last time around), domestic drafts will be $2, and that there will be free (award-winning) pizza and appetizers again (nobody left hungry last year).
We’ll be there for the whole thing, of course, and most responsible in-town commenters have alre

LET'S MAKE A DEAL
The Browns have the No. 4 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft, but could they deal it? It looks like they have several suitors.
Yesterday when talking draft, a friend of mine made a pretty good simple statement with regards to Justin Blackmon. It doesn’t really matter what a guy is “worth” on the draft value chart. Either you want him or you don’t. The draft value scale is only there to tell you what you probably have to do to get him. It also speaks to Pat McManamon’s mock draft from yesterday...
A rumor sourced to Tony Grossi all over Twitter indicates that the trade winds are blowing as we move closer to the draft. The meat of the rumor has the Eagles looking to move up to #4 presumably to take Ryan Tannehill. The Eagles have the 15th pick in the draft and also numbers 46 and 51 in the second round.
For the Browns, it takes them out of the running for guys like Richardson...
Earlier today ESPNCleveland.com reported that the Cleveland Browns have some interest in drafting Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who’s been quickly sliding down team’s draft boards due to character concerns and a poor showing at the combine.
This evening, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer cleared things up and stated that the Browns have zero interest in...
Hey! Come to our draft party!
We are getting closer and closer to the NFL draft and it is officially time to believe everything and nothing. The Browns will draft Ryan Tannehill. The Browns will draft Matt Kalil. The Browns will trade the pick to Miami or Philadelphia. The Browns have to draft an offensive player. Well, on second thought they could draft Morris Claiborne. The fact...
In the 1978 NFL draft the Cleveland Browns had two first round picks like they do in 2012. The first of those two picks was Clay Matthews from the University of Southern California who should be in hall of fame...but that is for another conversation. The second selection for the Cleveland Browns in the 1978 draft was Ozzie (Wizard of Oz) Newsome from the University of Alabama. Those...
Come join us at the Two Bucks in Middleburg Heights for a Browns NFL draft party. WFNY writers will be on hand, as well as a mystery Cleveland Brown player. There will be WFNY giveaways and much more. Hope to see you there!
Proceeds will benefit Karen Foundation for MS, as Browns cornerback Joe Haden is expected to attend.
According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns have been talking all the time and they’ve discussed a trade for the fourth overall pick.
Right now though, the chances of the Eagles trading up from the 15th pick to the 4th pick are very slim.
At the end of the day, I really don’t believe that the Eagles are very serious about trading up...
