Tryout Treasure 19 Draft Cleveland Browns Edition by Matt Anzio
Possible Later rd to UDFA’s that are of interest or fit your Cleveland Browns. Never meant to intend in any way that these guys are undraftable. It’s the NFL everyone beyond day 2 is a tryout.
- WR Marcus Green
- Height: 5’ 8
- Weight: 191 lbs
Legit burst on YAC yardage or on returns has that next gear to take it all the way to the house.
Could be utilized in so many ways on the ball field. He is not an easy guy for bigger defenders to locate met with resistance when they do. His Pro Day numbers: Forty – 4.39
Vert – 39 “ Reps – 14 2018 All-Sunbelt First team, 2018 Paul Hornung Award finalist & a Biletnikoff Finalist & that’s just 2018.
- OT Joe Lowery
- Height: 6’ 5
- Weight: 320 lbs
Lowery a big OT with a high football IQ & good understanding of the position.
Proday Vert – 28.5 “ with 18 Reps at 225lbs is all I could find along with his measurements.
33.⅜ Wingspan, It will all come down to athleticism which looks good, whether he stays outside or moves inside at the next. A humble leader that leads by example & is well respected by teammates & coaches. He has what it takes to come in the complete push for some opportunity. Growing up a die-hard Joe Thomas fan & playing ball for the Bobcat’s could be a natural fit. We know they need to protect the franchise QB like Baker. The Cleveland Browns have shown interest in him believe they will get him as a UDFA or late round Gem.
- CB Stephen Denmark
- Valdosta State
- Height: 6’ 4
- Weight: 220
The ever rare 6 foot 4 corner that is super athletic.
Sure he is garnering a lot of attention he is can move good ball reaction to disrupt plays. Fluid movement can play press or off coverages good instincts tracking the ball. Pro Day Numbers included an outstanding Forty – 4.46 with a 43 “ Vertical that is no Joke. A 2 X All-Conference player. 2018 had 55 tackles, 9 PBU & 3 INT. Has 2 years playing CB after being a WR so we know he understands routes & what to look for from a QB or wideout. There are several teams interested in this exciting prospect. Kinda want him in Philly but I’m trying to go by visits & word of mouth. Can’t see them & most others not being interested.
- LB Michael Kwegyir Attah
- Norfolk State
- Height: 6’1
- Weight: 233
Been a fan since the HBCU week where he caught my attention. Has good size for the position
HBCU Combine Results : Forty 4.80 ( leg cramp) Short Shuttle- 4.16 Vert – 31“ Broad – 8’ 11“ L drill – 6.94. Attah had some injuries over the last couple years but before that, in 2015-16 he had 99 tackles 5 sacks & was 1st Team All-Conference. Overall despite a bad forty, his numbers are on par with s chance to improve upon them at the ANC combine next month. Can attack with a quickness good read &ract skills can get downhill in a hurry. Takes good angles heavy hitter can bring the pain. Has played inside & out willingness to play any role on D or ST. Has a good frame to add weight. Intelligent coachable high character prospect worth a look.
- S Kiy Hester
- Height: 5’ 11
- Weight: 209
Was a 2017 Honorable mention All-Big 10
Also All-Big 10 Honoree 3rd team Phil Steele in his JR year. This past season he appeared in all 11 games & titled 31 tackles & a PBU. Part of a team producing some NFL talent especially on D. Has several good looking Scarlet Knight prospects coming out & he is 1 of 2 safeties that are on NFL teams roster as most of us know of Hampton. Hester is a player that could be plug & play ST day 1. Has a chance if he stays healthy to be a quality player, that’s all we can hope for. Love the players don’t quit mentality, type of guy worth pulling for.
Rutgers Pro Day Results: Forty – 4.67 Short Shuttle – 4.33 Bench – 12 Vert 30.5“ Broad – 9’ 4” L drill – 7.18 60 yd – 12.25
- OL Larry Omolayo
- Pace University
- Height: 6’ 2
- Weight: 315 lbs
Still flying below the radar Omolayo deserves a shot to compete this spring.
Did not have a pro day but is in the process of preparing for the ANC combine next month. As he looks for any opportunity to continue to play the game he loves. Straight up mauler can get out in space swing block like an old pro. Excellent on the move good functional strength & overall ability to move is above average. Plays with good pad level get his hands in the inside of the shoulder pads to lock down defenders like Son Quinton. The extremely likable coachable intelligent player that can strive at OC or OG. His tape is fun to watch love watching him roll over defenders like a road paver.
- DE/ OLB Kevin Thompson
- Bethune Cookman
- Height: 6’ 3
- Weight: 246 lbs
Couple good looking D players coming out of Bethune -Cookman this Year.
Edge rusher Thompson has the get off to be a factor in the pass rush. Has the strength speed to help add depth to a young building DL of the Browns He had a huge game against Nebraska with 3 sacks & 2 FF. Was All-Conference 2 out of 4 yrs at BCU. Gridiron Showcase MVP for Defense in Texas earlier this yr. He is a guy that can thrive adding weight with his hand in the dirt. Or staying around the weight he is at & standing.
Proday : Forty: 4.73 Short Shuttle – 4.50 Reps – 18 Vert – 30” Broad – 9’
- S Evan Worthington
- Height: 6’2
- Weight: 212
Multi-faceted prospect Worthington can play Safety or Slot with LB experience.
A player that is projected anywhere from day 2 to day 3. He has had some concussion concerns but other than that he has a lot of upside. Still, think its a deep DB class & he could slide to day 3. Cause the projections are all over the map. Worthington has a passion for the game can see that in his intellect on the field. Plays faster than the 4.63 would imply his ability to recognize the play & close is one of his major benefits. Hard hitter but also a very smooth backpeddler that can flip the hips fluidly maintain exceptional long speed deep.
Combine: Forty 4.63 Reps – 17 Vert 33.5” Broad – 10’ 1″ Short Shuttle – 4.37 L drill – 7.07 60 yd – 11.88
- WR/ KR Davion Davis
- Sam Houston State
- Height: 6’0
- Weight: 185 lbs
Exciting with the ball in his hands explosive with good movement skills.
Could be a day 1 starter on special teams. At the same time, there are quite a few guys like Davis in this draft. He might have to do more than ST to make a squad think his YAC ability is exceptional. Navigating thru traffic like a pro stunt driver. He is a dynamic exciting player that I will be watching in camp & preseason to see if it carries over to the NFL. He has made some amazing plays an impressive body of work.
Proday Short Shuttle – 4.07 Reps – 15 L Drill- 6.0 All I can find.
- OT/ OG Brock Ruble
- Height: 6’8
- Weight 325 lbs
Ruble is a big body O lineman that might be moved inside at the next level.
Deep sleeper strong heavy handed not easy to move off the spot. Good in run blocking heavy lean good gap control. Feet a lil slow & still raw but he could benefit from the right OL coach. Not sure if this is the perfect fit cause Baker is mobile but he does have a lot of upsides & the right technique with his massive frame could develop into an important piece to The Browns or other teams OL depth.
Pro Day Results: Forty – 540 Short Shuttle – 5.13 Bench – 15 Vert – 24” Broad- 8’ 4” L drill – 8.14
