CLEVELAND— Those attending Cleveland Browns fan fest this year will be able to see the rookie class in action.

Rookie minicamp was set to be a closed practice. But new head coach Hue Jackson wanted the players to have to chance to practice at FirstEnergy Stadium.

That will give fans an early opportunity to see the new draft picks when fan fest and minicamp combine on May 14. The rookies will also be on hand to sign autographs.

Last year was the inaugural fan fest, which was held at the Cleveland Convention Center.

The Browns will also host an NFL Draft party on April 28 at Public Auditorium.

Ticket information will be available at
