NFL Draft 2016: Grading All 14 Cleveland Browns Draft Picks

Carl Nassib

3.) Round 3 No. 65 Carl Nassib DE Penn State
Grade: D

The Browns take almost the same exact player as Ogbah except less athletic. Nassib was a one year wonder at Penn State, leading the NCAA in sacks this year. His fit in a 3-4 defense is my biggest concern with him. At 277 pounds, he’s too small to be an every down player on the line and his 4.84 speed is too slow to play standing up on the outside. He might be limited to sub packages where he can rush the passer only.

4.) Round 3 No. 76 Shon Coleman OT Auburn
Grade: B

The best of the Browns selections through day two, Shon Coleman will plug in from day one at RT to replace Mitchell Schwartz. He was a highly recruited player out of high school but battled leukemia earlier in his career leading him to be one of the older players in the draft at 24, and 25 when the season starts. He’s a plus run blocker who needs to work on his technique to be a better pass blocker but he will improve the offensive line.

5.) Round 3 No. 93 Cody Kessler QB USC
Grade: F

This was a horrible pick. Kessler was the 12th best QB on my board and the Browns reached for him on day two. His arm is extremely suspect as he doesn’t have the arm strength needed in the NFL. With how bad the team is, they will likely select a QB with the first overall pick next year so the team wasted a third round pick on a career backup.

6.) Round 4 No. 99 Joe Schobert LB Wisconsin
Grade: C+

Schobert was a productive LB at Wisconsin and LBs are a spot where I think production can really translate into the NFL. Finding a true position for him will be the question. They added a couple of pass rushers earlier who will play on the outside and with his weight at 244 pounds, he might have to shift to WILL. He’s not very athletic and will have to overcome that but he should step in right away on special teams.
