New Browns receiver, rookie Anthony Schwartz, used one of his off days before the season to attend Cedar Point, where he gave Cleveland fans a glimpse of his speed.

Schwartz raced the Top Thrill Dragster, a coaster that reaches speed of around 120 miles per hour.

Having just been to Sandusky amusement park where my 10-year-old daughter, Jean, gladly hopped aboard for some fun, my first reaction upon hearing Schwartz raced the coaster was, “He could have pulled a hamstring!”

Didn’t happen. Instead Schwartz made some good television for Cleveland’s local FOX-8 station.

Schwartz was regarded as the fastest prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft after running a 4.25-second 40-yard dash.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a look at Schwartz racing the coaster.

Schwartz certainly offers the Browns a speedy wideout who can stretch the field, but it would be surprising to see him get a lot of playing in his first season, especially with players such as Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry sitting on top of the depth chart.

That said, Kevin Stefanski is being healed as the next offensive genius, so one would think the second-year head coach could find some gadget plays to get Schwartz involved. Additionally, there’s been talk of Schwartz taking reps at kick returner, but we’ll have to wait until training camp and the preseason to see if that comes to fruition.

One things’ for certain: If Schwartz is put on the field, teams are going to pay a lot of attention to him because of his speed. It simply can’t be ignored.

While at Auburn, Schwartz became the No. 1 wideout in 2020, when he led the team with 54 catches, along with a career-high 636 passing yards in 10 games.

Interestingly, Schwartz attended high school at American Heritage High School in Florida, where he routinely practiced against some of to the top picks in last April’s draft, including Patrick Surtain II, Tyson Campbell and Marco Wilson.
