(Thanks to lellow2011 for the easy 'template'. Heh)
1-8: WLB - #99 Richard Gray - 68/99 (8/0)
- Cleveland was looking for a stud to anchor the defensive line, and they found it in Gray. Trim, but deceptively strong, Gray looks to be a force on the weak side for years to come. Training Camp was kind to him, and the coaches predict he'll win the starting nod come the regular season.
2-23: TE - #86 Louis Rock - 47/77 (5/-8)
- Rock came into Camp with high hopes, but lost substantial practice time after taking a cleat to the hand. Though the injury looked gruesome, there was no permanent damage. As a bonus, he looks to be good to go for the preseason. Here's hoping, because he'll have to show in those 4 games that he can pick up this offense and be the dual-threat TE he was touted as.
2-26: RB - #30 James Ferrell - 48/76 (4/-3)
- Ferrell was slated to be the heir-apparent for Jeffrey Nelson, as he enters his 14th season. However, Ferrell was lackluster and slowed midway through Camp by a sore hamstring. He has obvious talent that will translate to the pros, but the coaches are concerned they may have a 'glass cannon' on their hands.
3-30: MLB - #98 Donald Tran - 45/70 (5/-4)
- What was hoped to be another solid pickup to shore up the D-Line has turned into a bit of a head-scratcher for the Browns. Tran was noted for his versatility on the defensive side in his JUCO career. Now that he's been plugged into a steady spot, however, the coaches have found his positional work flawed. They have confidence in Tran's tools, and will continue to work him hard.
5-7: SLB - #90 John Bryan - 32/54 (5/-4)
- The highest-drafted of the coaching staff's "rookie experiments" this season, Bryan was on the boards as a corner. However, the Browns are trying to shift him into an undercover strong-side lineman... And they might be outsmarting themselves. Bryan was comfortable with the change (he'd played 15 games on the D-Line at Weber State), but was overmatched early on against pro-style talent. Time will tell how this goes.
5-11: CB - #21 Robert Cook - 44/68 (4/2)
- One of very few true "bright spots" in Camp, Cook took to a pro-style secondary easily, showing equal prowess in both man and zone coverage. It didn't hurt that Cook sought out the advice and mentoring of fellow safeties Winston Stevenson and Thomas Womack, talking about them as inspirations in both his high school and collegiate careers. While he might not have the physical tools and makeup of his idols, his mental map of the game is boundless.
5-14: RG - #81 Scott Walker - 31/55 (1/0)
- Another rookie that's shifted positions, Walker came in as a solid Big Ten wideout... Behind a good lineup of already established wideouts. Early in Camp, he realized he probably wouldn't get much of a chance in the passing game, and asked coaches if he could settle in on the right side of the O-Line. He has some experience there, having played a year in the trenches at high school. He's definitely rusty in his blocking, but he showed coaches enough to keep him in the spot.
6-6: RB - #61 Albert Fields - 34/59 (7/4)
- The huge surprise of Browns Camp was Albert Fields. Another rookie asked to make a positional adjustment, Fields wow'ed coaches with the ease he shifted from receiver to runner. Fields attributed his hard work to the honesty of the coaching staff, and went so far as to thank them for giving him the truth of his chances to break into the receiving corps. Of course, it doesn't hurt that he'll still have opportunities to catch the ball out of the backfield.
6-13: LT - #59 Donald Ramirez - 38/61 (0/0)
- A late-round position shift project, Ramirez was asked to make the transition from tight end to offensive lineman. He has the very basic fundamentals of blocking, but will need a lot of time and practice to come into his own on the line. His work ethic and intangibles are clear, however, and the coaching staff will give him ample opportunities to prove himself.
7-8: DT - Frank Duran
- Duran was released prior to the start of Training Camp
7-15: LG - #10 Dennis Woods - 37/55 (1/-1)
- By far the roughest project out of this year's Draft, Woods is making a massive change from QB to the line he played behind for so long. Coaches lauded his strength and mental toughness as reasons behind the transition, plus the fact that the team brought on 2 new quarterbacks in the off-season. Woods is for sure a fringe player to remain on the team, but could potentially make a name for himself if he's so inclined.
