NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns Are On The Clock

Statistical analysis shows Chiefs as best drafting since 2014

Allen, who was expected to be a top choice in the draft, called the tweets "young and dumb" in an apology to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith.

On Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter threw a wrench into the NFL Draft thoughts when he reported that Baker Mayfield was "definitely" in the Cleveland Browns' discussion with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Browns wisely coughed up two first round picks in trade with the Buffalo Bills to ensure they landed Kosar in the 1985 supplemental draft. In 2018, however, after so many athletes and other celebrities have had old, embarrassing tweets dug up, one wonders how no one suggested to Allen that his old tweets would potentially be looked at by teams, reporters and curious fans.

"I known Josh has apologized for the Twitter comments he made while in high school", Bohl said, per Barrett Sallee of CBS Sports.

ESPN says the tweets were removed from Allen's account when it was vetted in January. "We never envisioned a day or night like this".

The Cleveland Browns have a storied history that dates back to the franchise's inception in 1946, and have been making picks in the NFL Draft ever since joining the league in 1950.

In the original photo, Favre was surrounded by family and friends as he casually took a phone call from the Atlanta Falcons, who had just picked in him the second round. He was later selected by the Miami Dolphins.
