Even in years in which the Browns didn’t possess a first-round pick, Cleveland has traditionally been one of the top markets for viewing the NFL Draft.
But in 2021, Cleveland might be doing more than just watching the draft — it could also be hosting it
Along with Denver and Kansas City, Cleveland is one of three finalists being considered to host either the 2021 or 2023 NFL Drafts. A decision is expected to come as soon as Wednesday via the annual league meetings, which are being held in Key Biscayne, Fla.
“We continue to be excited by the prospect of hosting an NFL Draft in Cleveland and are confident in Northeast Ohio’s ability to create a special experience for fans, players, alumni and the community,” Browns Senior Vice President of Communications Peter John-Baptiste told WKYC. “In partnership with the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, our leadership has remained committed to hopefully bringing this marquee event to Cleveland and will continue to pursue the opportunity with the league.”
