6th-round, John Reid, CB Penn State
Corners are like pitchers, you can never have enough, so Brugler has the Browns going with Penn State’s John Reid.
Reid’s considered undersized at 5-foot-10, 187 pounds, but his production playing in the Big Ten makes him an intriguing prospect, especially for this late in the draft. He knocked away 37 passes and tallied seven interceptions in his career with the Nittany Lions.
Plus he posted a 3.97 time in the short shuttle, which was the best mark at the combine. Brugler noted these stats would be more important to Cleveland’s front office.
Principal’s note: I won’t pretend to be a John Reid expert, but the pick gets a B+ for the focus on the position. Cleveland needs to focus on bringing along some corner depth. The team signed corner Kevin Johnson to be its slot corner, but that was a one-year deal. Terrance Mitchell is still on the roster, but he will be a free agent at season’s end. Grade: B+
