The Cleveland Browns made an interesting pick with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. Cleveland selected former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the top pick in the draft.

The Browns also held the No. 4 pick in the draft. Who did they select?

Many believed former North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb would be the selection, but the Browns went in another, surprising, direction.

Cleveland picked former Ohio State corner Denzel Ward.

Ohio State has quickly become "DB U" after Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley went in the draft last year.

Will the surprise move pay off?

We'll have to wait and see.
