Thursday is the NFL draft. And for Browns fans, it’s the equivalent of the Super Bowl. The team that went 0-16 last season has the first and fourth picks. WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto says there's been a lot of speculation and rumors about who the Browns will select, but it’s fairly safe to say it will be a quarterback.

Now that the Browns have completed their winless season, questions are swirling about why the team is sticking with head coach Hue Jackson. Owner Jimmy Haslam maintains that Jackson will return next year. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says no coach in NFL history has a 1-31 record in just two seasons.

The Cleveland Browns' winless season hasn't just been hard on fans. Some local sellers of Browns merchandise say they've also taken a hit.

Note:Adrian Ma reached out to the Browns organization for some official numbers on merchandise sales, but they declined to release them. So, Ma went to Tower City mall in Downtown Cleveland to conduct his own, admittedly unscientific, market research.
