Seth DeValve, TE
Seth DeValve is an interesting name because he very much fits the mold of someone the analytical oriented front office would be looking for.
Sashi Brown, Paul DePodesta and company saw value in him that apparently other teams didn’t see. That led to the Browns making DeValve, who went to Princeton, a fourth-round selection in the 2016 draft.
DeValve arrived to his second camp looking large. It’s clear he’s added muscle and even Jackson’s commented on how he looks bigger, strong, and faster.
With all of the expectations David Njoku is facing, DeValve may be a pleasant surprise.
Speaking of Njoku, the first-round pick has had a case of the drops in camp. He’s clearly physically gifted, but perhaps DeValve can help the rookie easier transition by taking the attention off him.
If both tight ends are able to show up and show out, look out. Cleveland may have the ability to create some serous matchup nightmares for opposing defensive coordinators.
With the starters leaving the preseason games so early on in the action, look for these Browns to continue making a name for themselves when the preseason commences against the Saints on Thursday night.
