CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns will have two top-five picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Browns earned the No. 1 overall pick with a loss to rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, a native of Mentor, Ohio, and the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field last week, and the Houston Texans' loss to the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium gave them their second top-five selection.
The Texans' pick, acquired in a trade for quarterback Deshaun Watson last April, will be the No. 4 selection.
In addition to the first-round selections, the Browns hold three second-round picks, and two choices each in the fourth, fifth and seventh rounds in 2018.
The Browns have made multiple first-round picks in the NFL Draft in three of the last four years (2014, 2015 and 2017).
The Browns will have a new personnel man making those selections, as they hired a new general manager, John Dorsey, days before a 27-21 overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers at FirstEnergy Stadium on December 10.
Last season, the Browns spent the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on former Texas A&M standout defensive end Myles Garrett, and then, the second choice on defensive back Jabrill Peppers (University of Michigan).
Late in the first round, the Browns executed a trade with the Green Bay Packers and selected tight end David Njoku out of the University of Miami (Florida).
With Sunday's season-ending loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field, the Browns went winless in a 16-game schedule for the first time in franchise history, and their 17th consecutive loss overall dropped the organization to a league-worst 1-31 since the opening game of 2016.
The Browns have not won on a Sunday afternoon since December 13, 2015. The 33 straight Sunday losses are an NFL record, and their 4-49 mark in the last 53 outings is the worst in the league in that four-year span.
Already this season, the Browns set the record for the worst 28-game stretch in NFL history, as they bested the previous mark of 2-26 set by the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the 1976-1977 seasons with a 1-27 mark that got four losses worse since Week 13.
