Mekhi Becton was though to be the “Giant” of this year’s lineman class. That may well be the case, but new Browns’ undrafted free agent Alex Taylor is no Mini Me.

Taylor, a 6-foot-8, 310-pound behemoth said his relationship with new offensive line coach Bill Callahan was a big reason he decided to join the Browns.

Interestingly, Taylor didn’t start playing football until his junior year of high school. He started playing collegiately for Appalachian State for two years, before transferring to South Carolina State.

More than a few prognosticators had Taylor going on the third day of the draft. When it didn’t happen, the Browns were reportedly called him with minutes of the draft concluding.

It feels like the Browns go about 14-lineman deep. We know that’s not true and we know that you can never have enough lineman.

Obviously, the unit was a big priority for the Browns, evidenced by signing Jack Conklin and then making Jedrick Wills the 10th overall pick.

The Browns then made a move for the future, drafting center Nick Harris. Doubt you’ll see much of him this year, rather, the Browns had the opportunity to draft a center that can play the run-zone scheme.

Not every center can do that, so the Browns treated themselves to someone who can help in the future.
