Browns select Cameron Erving with No. 19 pick of 2015 NFL Draft


The Cleveland Browns selected Florida State offensive lineman Cameron Erving with the No. 19 pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-5, 313-pound Erving is a player born to play in the hard running AFC North Division.

According to his draft profile at, “(Erving) keeps busy and works to secure blocks in run game. Good foot quickness into pass set. Consistently in ready position with good hand readiness in pass sets. Uses good hand placement and has natural timing with hands. Converted defensive tackle who will continue to improve in the NFL with more experience at center. Displays good snap-to-step quickness. Uses quickness to attack defender and begin his grind much earlier than when he played tackle.”

Just wait there’s more.

According to, Erving is “Versatile athlete with blend of size, athleticism, length, light feet and flexibility. Toughness, aggressive and works to finish opponents with strong hands and impressive natural power in his lower half. Easily reaches and dominates at the second level. Pulls smoothly, showing impressive initial quickness and acceleration for a man his size.”

Erving should make a significant impact on a Browns offensive line by competing with Mitchell Schwartz and John Greco for a starting position on the right side of the line. Schwartz did a lackluster job in 2014 giving up 7 sacks, 3 QB hits, and 12 QB hurries on the right side of the offensive line. The real value of Erving is his versatility, Erving can play multiple positions and a key one is center. The Browns are heading into a showdown with pro-bowl center Alex Mack after the season, and Erving could step right in and fill the gap should Mack opt out after the 2015 Season.

The Browns will be back on the clock with their second round pick at No. 43.
