The last selection for the Cleveland Browns is Robert Landers from OSU. He is 6-1 and 285 pounds which is a little undersized for the NFL and compared to that of the Browns starting tackles – Sheldon Richardson is 6-3 294 and Larry Ogunjobi is 6-3 305. He is from Dayton, Ohio and played for the Buckeyes so he can be a good fit here in Cleveland.
Richardson and Ogubjoi are great players for the Browns, but when they come off the field for a rest or injury the production behind them falls dramatically. The Browns recently signed Andrew Billings to help with the depth, and that is a great signing, but they could surely still use some more bodies.
Landers played for the Buckeyes and played in the College Football Playoff this past year and obviously has played against tough competition in his career. The Browns try to find a late, quality player that slipped through and can possibly produce. He is not much of a pass rusher, but he disruptive in the middle. He is good at shedding blocks and making some plays at the line of scrimmage.
This draft was very good to the Browns. They landed the stud left tackle of their future, as well as loading other positions of need with talent. With the current roster the Browns have built and the solid free agency period they had, this draft allowed them to basically take the best player available, mainly focused on the defensive side.
The team will be much improved after this draft, and fans should be very excited for the first four players the Browns landed. Wills, Winfield Jr., Harrison, and Highsmith can come in and be very good players for Cleveland.
