Round 3, pick 89 Dylan Moses, LB Alabama

SI.com’s Bama Central proclaimed he could be one of the steals of the draft.

Sign me up. Seriously, I’d be comfortable making this gamble.

The Browns need linebackers and Dylan Moses could wind up being a good player. He certainly has the pedigree, although his stock was down after the 2020 season, even after his Alabama Crimson Tide won the national championship.

Moses didn’t seem himself, and we found out way. It came out after the season that Moses was playing with a torn meniscus (knee). The injury was originally diagnosed as a bone bruise. He had surgery in February and he’ll likely be ready for Training Camp come August.

He still garnered first-team All-American, but with the revelation coming out that he needed surgery, teams should feel better about taking him–especially if he falls into the 80s.

The trend the Browns are following is not to put a lot of emphasis on the linebacker position, as the belief those players can be found later in the draft.

Moses fits that description here and would be afforded time to incubate on the roster.
