    While he didn't live up to first round status, the kid had talent in college and got buried on a pretty damn good Browns OL depth chart, has played 3 spots on the line, etc... Shame we couldn't have got him for a fifth

    I don't think we need to spend any resources on a tackle at this stage

    A tackle can play center? I thought centers had more in common with guards

    He's actually played everywhere along the line. C, G, and T.

    Cam Erving was extremely versatile at FSU, he would have easily competed at guard and would have been nice depth at the very least.

    Problem is he hasn't been good at any of those positions.

    I agree and if someone like OL coach Bob Wylie can't get the best out of you then there probably isn't too much to be had from you as a lineman.

    OTOH, we could possibly use the depth.
