Browns' Larry Ogunjobi: Selected by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns selected Ogunjobi in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 66th overall.

It's another fine selection for Cleveland. Ogunjobi is relatively obscure after playing at Charlotte, but this is a productive player who logged borderline elite workout metrics. At 6-foot-3, 305 pounds, Ogunjobi ran the 40 in 4.97 seconds at the Combine, adding a 32-inch vertical, 116-inch broad jump, and 7.55-second three-cone drill.

Browns' DeShone Kizer: Browns draft in second round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns selected Kizer in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 52nd overall.

Kizer likely was worth a top-15 pick in terms of talent, but he falls this far largely due to questions about his character -- specifically the question of whether he cares about football. Kizer's advanced poise, mechanics, and overall productivity for his age would seem to imply a person who worked hard at his craft, but Kizer regressed as a second-year starter in 2016, and his college coach undermined his stock by publicly criticizing him. Accuracy and decision making need to improve for Kizer to stick as a starter in the NFL, but he's otherwise a big, strong-armed, and athletic quarterback who was very impressive for most of his two-year run as starter. No matter how many negatives you add up with Kizer, for Cleveland to get him this late is a hand well-played. He should be ready to start by 2018, and a 2017 takeover at Cody Kessler's expense can't be ruled out.

Browns' Gary Barnidge: Odd man out following Browns' addition of Njoku
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After selecting fellow tight end David Njoku, the Browns have elected to cut Barnidge, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Barnidge, who turns 32 in September, will thus be looking for a new job in the wake of the team's addition of Njoku in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday. Though Barnidge's 55 catches for 612 yards and two TDs last season were a drop-off from his 79/1,043/9 stat line in 2015, it's still a bit of a surprise to see the veteran tight end unceremoniously sent packing. The move clearly signifies the Browns' commitment to Njoku, a talented young pass catcher who merits immediate fantasy consideration now that Barnidge is no longer in the mix.

Browns' Gary Barnidge: Facing competition from first-rounder Njoku
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnidge will face competition from first-round selection David Njoku, Nathaniel Cline of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Browns made Njoku their third selection of Thursday's opening round, trading up to No. 29 to select the rookie out of Miami. While he doesn't have much of a reputation for blocking, Njoku at least figures to provide Barnidge with immediate competition for targets in a part-time role on passing downs, after the 32-year-old failed to build on his breakout 2015 campaign, catching only 55 passes for 612 yards and two touchdowns on 81 targets last season.

Browns' David Njoku: Picked 29th by the Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns selected Njoku in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 29th overall.

After taking Myles Garrett at No. 1 and Jabrill Peppers at No. 25, the Browns land Njoku (6-foot-4, 246 pounds) with a third first-round pick -- one they obtained by moving up from the 33rd overall pick. Njoku is a former high-jumping standout with springs in his shoes and a big catch radius, giving him the ideal profile of a red-zone threat at the very least. But with 4.64 speed and good agility, he also profiles as a playmaker between the 20s. He might need a year or two to acclimate to the NFL given that he won't turn 21 until July, but the raw materials are here for an eventual fantasy standout.
