Meeting the New Brownies


I’m going to level with you: I did not watch the NFL Draft this weekend.  At all.  In other words, I never saw the picks the Browns were making until after the fact.  I do, however, have a good reason for this.  I spent the weekend at home and was driving back to school on Sunday, so I was actually unable to watch any of the Day Two festivities, although I have never been particularly fond of listening to Mel Kiper, Jr. for two days in a row, so I guess I should refrain from calling them “festivities.”  His mystique wears off quickly, and by the time the first round is over, I am usually wishing for him to crawl back to wherever he is from and pop up again next year.

Nevertheless, through some trades, the Browns were able to draft five players between the fourth and seventh rounds.  Those players were:

Beau Bell, LB, UNLV (4th round, 104th overall)

Martin Rucker, TE, Missouri (4th round, 111th overall)

Ahtyba Rubin, DT, Iowa State (6th round, 190th overall)

Paul Hubbard, WR, Wisconsin (6th round, 191st overall)

Alex Hall, DE, St. Augustine (7th round, 231st overall

With each wonderful passing day, I will be sure to bring more information on each of these new Browns, starting tomorrow with Beau Bell.
