It’s tough to play the offensive line in this league. I think he also has crossed those hurdles as you go through the offseason. This will be his first game as a pro. I anticipate he’s going to battle. I anticipate he’ll have a winning performance. If he makes mistakes along the way, we’ll get them fixed and keep moving. [...] I think he’s a guy that started and played in almost every single game in his college career. He’s gone through this getting ready to play process. He’s played a lot of snaps. I think that gives me a little bit more comfort than a guy that came in and maybe was a one-year starter or there was something about his college history where he hadn’t played all that much. I think he’s draws on that a little bit. I think he’s playing with some guys in that offensive line that are veteran players. Even though they might not be right next to him, although Shawn Lauvao has played a couple years now, I think they’ll help him get through it. I just know by his personality that he’s going to battle. That’s what you need from an offensive lineman.

– Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shumur, Friday, on 2012 second-round draft selection Mitchell Schwartz. Schwartz had a very hot and cold preseason, experiencing considerable issues during the team’s preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Browns’ Week 1 opponent.
