Sam Jones, G, Arizona State
The Browns have a great starting offensive line, but they lack quality depth. Enter Sam Jones, the Sun Devil who did not allow a single sack or quarterback hit in his final season.
Experience at both the left and right side of the offensive line lets me think he could be an upgrade at swing guard for the Browns. Bitonio and Zeitler aren’t going anywhere but it would be nice to know they’ve got security behind them.
However, his injury history and light frame (290 lbs) for a guard makes many think that despite his solid play on field, he might not be suited to even be drafted. Some have him going all the way to being a seventh rounder, but considering this is a pick for depth, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
Ryan Yurachek, TE/FB, Marshall
A nice fullback/tight end hybrid with great hands and a great blocker, Ryan Yurachek is a forgotten man in a draft filled with quality tight ends. To make things worse for the young man is the devalue of fullback position.
Yurachek is a great weapon to have on the line and out of the backfield. He’s very good in blocking schemes and is a very valuable receiver, catching 26 touchdowns in four years, 10 of which came in 2017.
He’s on the smaller side for a tight end, 6-foot-3″ 239-pounds, but is just right for a fullback. He can play both and would be a valuable piece for the Browns that they could grab late on day 3 or potentially get as undrafted free agent.
