As Kirk let us all know earlier, the Cleveland Browns got giant many Mitchell Schwartz. He is a 6’5″ 320 pound monster who Mike Mayock called a “plug-and-play” right tackle. Of course the Browns could have gone with either offensive line or wide receiver with their second rounder. I guess the Browns feel their chances of getting a receiver are still good later. But let’s learn more about Mitchell Schwartz.

The talk about Schwartz is that he might have been a bit overmatched at times as a left tackle for Cal. He played two years with Alex Mack, incidentally. He isn’t known for his athleticism and certainly has some room to improve technique types of things. On the positive side of things he is from a football family. His brother Geoff plays offensive line for the Carolina Panthers. He is known for his work ethic and maturity according to most NFL draft sites. While he played left tackle at Cal out of necessity, he has always seemingly projected as a right tackle in the NFL among front offices and draft gurus.

This also finally puts to rest any of my conspiracy theories about Jason Pinkston moving out to right tackle, I think. At 6’5″ tall and 318 pounds, Mitchell Schwartz has prototypical size for offensive tackle. Now all he has to do is go out and take the starter’s spot in training camp while blocking for Trent Richardson and (presumably) Brandon Weeden.

We’ll see if the Browns find a way to get back into the second round or stand pat until their pick (#67 overall) in the third round.
