3. Jayson Oweh – Edge, Penn State

While many people are infatuated with Azeez Oijular from Georgia, I’m not sold he would be the perfect fit for the Browns. He is a guy that is better in the stand-up position and will likely be more effective with a team that runs the 3-4 scheme.

However, one guy that is continuing to rise is Jayson Oweh from Penn State. While many believe Oweh is also best suited in a 3-4 scheme, his rare traits of athleticism, strength, and length will give him the flexibility to play in any scheme.

After an astonishing 4.33 40-yard dash, Oweh cemented himself as a top 10-20 pick. While many originally had him pegged as the third or fourth defensive end, he has now moved to number one or two on many boards.

As fate would have it, the Browns’ biggest need coming into the draft is at defensive end which is likely one of the weakest positions in the draft, at the top end at least. While there is a lot of depth at the position in the later rounds, it’s tough to say if Berry will want to risk a potential bust to trade up for Oweh.

There is a good chance that Oweh goes in the top 15, and if that’s the case, I don’t think Berry will pony up what a team is asking for to move up. If he would happen to slip to no. 20, the Browns could have interest in moving up to snag the project player.
