Cleveland Browns: John Dorsey’s round-by-round draft history
Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey is known for his success in the draft, so how has he fared in each round of the draft?
Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey is known as a “football guy” due to his roots in scouting. After playing for six seasons in the NFL, Dorsey became a scout two seasons later for the Green Bay Packers.
From there, he moved his way up the ladder to becoming Green Bay’s Director of Football Operations in 2012. He was then named Kansas City’s general manager in 2013, and worked in that capacity until 2017. Cleveland then hired him as general manager a few months later.
Dorsey comes from the Ron Wolf tree of how to build a football team. A big part of that philosophy is to build through the draft, and that is something Dorsey has tried to do since becoming a general manager.
With the 2019 NFL Draft only hours away, we take a look at every player Dorsey has drafted since becoming a general manager in 2013.
2013: Mike Catapano, Defensive End
Mike Catapono did not spend too long in a Kansas City uniform, playing in 15 games in two seasons with the Chiefs. He dealt with a mysterious illness in 2014, forcing him to miss the entire season. Over his entire career, Catapono played in 29 games, including four starts, making nine total tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks, and eight quarterback hits. Catapono last played in 2016.
2015: Da’Ron Brown, Wide Reciever
Da’Ron Brown has never played a snap for in the NFL, including with the Chiefs, who waived Brown four months after drafting him. He has bounced around the league on practice squads, but has never been able to show enough to make a team’s roster. He was last on a team’s practice squad in 2017.
