Browns | Pat Shurmur defends NFL Draft strategy

Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur defended the team's decisions during the NFL Draft, particularly trading the No. 6 overall selection to the Atlanta Falcons. "I think we did great," Shurmur said. "I don't care what anybody says. But we obviously started off the draft by making a historic trade, probably one of the greatest trades in draft history, when we traded with (the) Atlanta (Falcons) - our sixth pick to get to (No.) 27, eventually up to (No.) 21 - because we felt like we needed help in areas and based on the talent, based on what other teams around us were gonna do and based on what we needed, we felt like that was the perfect thing to do."
