Why 6-foog-4, 255-pound Rashod Berry continues to be overlooked this draft season remains a great mystery. To play tight end at Ohio State means you’re probably pretty good at football, yet Berry wasn’t invited to big events such as the Senior Bowl or the NFL Combine.

He was invited to the NFLPA All-Star game, where he played well, and his next chance to impress scouts will come during Ohio State’s Pro Day.

Berry didn’t churn out eye-popping stats while wearing Scarlet and Gray, but with that said, he wasn’t really asked to be that type of player. He was usually in a fixture in goal line situations, where he was asked to block. Of course, he had a memorable touchdown reception against Washington in the Rose Bowl a couple years ago.

Keeping that in mind, Berry can catch, and it shouldn’t be forgotten in the age of athletic tight ends that the prospect starred for Lorain High’s basketball team. Plus, who helped fill in for Chase Young at defensive end when Chase Young got suspended? Yep, it was Berry.

He’s the type of player you could see Bill Belihick making a cult star out of of…so, will the Browns take him?

Now that analytics is king again in Berea, David Njoku should get a shot to prove why he was a first-round pick. While we all hold our breathes, Berry is the type of player the Browns should be developing  because he’s capable of being both a blocking tight end, in addition to a receiver.

There’s a possibility that Berry won’t even be drafted, but if I’m the Browns, I wouldn’t give other teams a crack at signing him in free agency. He’d be worth a draft pick in my book.
