The Cleveland Browns continue to add depth at the linebacker position in the sixth round of the NFL Draft.

The Browns drafted Texas LB Emmanuel Acho with the No. 204 overall pick, the first of two back-to-back compensatory selections in the sixth round.

Here's his scouting report from NFL.com:

Strengths:

Acho is an instinctual inside linebacker who usually takes a good first step toward the ball off the snap. He is good to meet running backs inside and fill a gap, if not two, to make a play and get the ball carrier to the ground. Acho is good when having to sift through blockers outside, and is a better tackler from the inside/out in pursuit than he is meeting at the point. He understands how to time blitzes and work against offensive lineman to get pressure on the quarterback.

Weaknesses:

Acho can get dominated by bigger offensive lineman and struggles to disengage at times. He is a decent athlete who can look awkward when pursuing long or dropping in his pass set at times. He is a bit undersized and can't maul tight ends at the line to get them off route, and struggles in coverage when having to run with them. Other than on special teams, won't be a very reliable inside presence early on.
