Round 5, Pick 32: Ugo Amadi, S, Oregon
Over the past two seasons, Ugo Amadi was an incredibly productive safety for the Oregon Ducks. He had 98 tackles, three sacks, and seven picks in that stretch. His numbers suggest he should go higher than this but he’s slightly undersized and struggled to find his true position in the Oregon defense.
He started out as a corner but lacked the recovery speed to stick with some of the better wideouts. He then moved to safety where his play improved but his measurements aren’t ideal for that spot in the NFL as Amadi came into the combine at just 5-foot-9 and 199-pounds. He may end up being just a special teams player but has the ability to be groomed for a rotational defensive back as well.
Round 6, Pick 17: Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota State
Back in 2016, the Browns passed on taking North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz. That was a subject of debate for years, but the addition of Baker Mayfield in 2018 silenced all the questions about that. Now, they look at the school again as the Browns take Wentz’ successor, Easton Stick with their pick in Round 6.
Stick had some big shoes to fill for the Bisons and did an admirable job. He’s considered a great team leader and was a dual threat for them. The Browns thankfully don’t need a starting quarterback any longer, but someone like Stick can become a great backup to Mayfield.
