CLE: Danny Shelton Quick Recap


Love this pick for the Cleveland Browns for a few reasons. The selection of nose tackle Danny Shelton will drastically improve the Browns’ 31st ranking against the run last season. Additionally, Shelton is a high character guy – something Cleveland cannot have too much of these days.

With many rumors surrounding the Browns leading up to this draft, it was nice to see wisdom come from the Browns. After sketchy selections of Justin Gilbert and Johnny Manziel in the first round last season, essentially wasting one (may two) of their picks, Shelton is a solid selection who will make an immediate impact on day one.

I hardly ever say this, but well done, Browns. Smart, smart selection.

Instant Grade: A-
