There was no hiding the fact the team loved Kamerion Wimbley. His
speed and explosion gives Wimbley the ability to play at several spots up front.
He is very similar for John Abraham coming out of college. The question must be
asked; is he as good as Manny Lawson at this stage in the game? We don’t think
so, but if Wimbley stays healthy he a good fit for the team. D’Qwell
Jackson was a late riser of sorts yet an overrated linebacker in our
opinion. A tremendous run stuffer with limited skills in coverage, he is a
perfect fit on the inside of the Browns four-man linebacker formation. Travis Wilson was great value in round three. Coming off a disappointing senior
season, which was marred with injury and poor quarterback play at Oklahoma, he
offers starting potential as a second wide out. On paper Leon Williams
looks the part but only occasionally plays to it on the field. Williams offers
great upside but was a major risk in round four. Not so for Isaac Sowells,
a college left tackle who could develop into a starting guard. Jerome Harrison was a bargain in the fifth frame and should do well as a rotational
ball carrier. The same can be said for DeMario Minter, who has early
round size/speed numbers yet needs to develop a complete game. Minter should see
action as a dime back next season. Babatunde Oshinowo was great
value and will produce on the nose.
The Browns flip-flopped spots with Baltimore in round one and received a
sixth round pick in return, which they used to select Oshinowo, a terrific move.
The franchise dangled center Jeff Faine in the off-season but had no takers.
They were able to finally cast him off on draft day in return for moving up nine
slots to grab Jackson which was another good move.
