BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns will not be on the clock when the NFL draft resumes Saturday.

After picking first on both Thursday and Friday, Cleveland will enter the final day with five selections to help fix a team that went 0-16 last season and hasn't made the playoffs since 2002.

The Browns addressed some major needs in the second round, most notably taking Nevada left tackle Austin Corbett with the No. 33 overall pick. Corbett could be the heir apparent to Pro Bowler Joe Thomas, whose retirement last month left a gaping hole in Cleveland's offensive line.

Although they selected Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick, the Browns could add another QB on Day Three.

General manager John Dorsey has already selected two players who were walk-ons in college and it seems all of this year's picks so far have overcome long odds to make it to the pros.
