List of Cleveland Browns Undrafted Free Agents (Reports May Contain Inaccuracies)

  • WR Josh Cooper - Oklahoma State - 5-11, 190 lbs. He was on the receiving end of passes by Brandon Weeden, selected by the Browns in round one. NFL.com says he is crafty and could work as a slot guy, but could have trouble getting open at the next level. (Source)
  • WR Bert Reed - Florida State - 5-10, 182 lbs. He was officially clocked with a 4.46 (not at the combine), but several scouts reported him being in the 4.3's. In other words, he's got some speed. (Source)
  • WR Jermain Saffold - Missouri State - 6-0, 195 lbs. He also has some pretty good speed, reportedly, to go along with better size. (Source)
  • OG J.B. Shugarts - Ohio State - 6-7, 300 lbs. He has some good strength, but "struggles to gain leverage and keep his balance in both the run and pass game." What do you think, Buckeye fans? (Source)
  • OT Matt Cleveland - Idaho - 6-3, 293 lbs. Buy his jersey; I guarantee you that its face value won't decline very much, even if he gets cut right away! (Source)
  • OT Jake Anderson - Akron - 6-6, 304 lbs. (Source)
  • OL Garth Gerhart - Arizona State - 6-1, 305 lbs. He is the brother of RB Toby Gerhart. Projected to go in the middle rounds, NFL.com says, "Gerhart is a high-effort, big-motor player who has the frame to compete for a starting position at the next level." (Source)
  • DL William Green - Florida - 6-3, 250 lbs. Yes, you are reading that correctly -- the Browns once again have a guy named William Green on their team. YOUR OLD GREEN JERSEYS HAVE VALUE AGAIN! (Source)
  • ILB Josh Linam - Central Florida - 6-2, 242 lbs. Reports say he gives a lot of effort, but isn't real explosive in any facets of the game. (Source)
  • LB Andrew Sweat - Ohio State - 6-1, 231 lbs. He led the Buckeyes at the linebacker position tackles. He reportedly had an "outstanding" Pro Day workout. (Source)
  • FS Johnson Bademosi - Stanford - 6-1, 201 lbs. He could either be a cornerback or a developmental safety. Per NFLDraftScout, "Perhaps the most intriguing was Bademosi, who was clocked at a startling 4.35 on his first 40 attempt and also demonstrated incredible explosiveness in the vertical (40") and broad jump (10'5")." Note: earlier reports said the 49ers were going to sign him, so stay tuned with this one.
  • FS Tashaun Gipson - Wyoming - 5-11, 206 lbs. NFL.com called him extremely productive, making the switch from CB to S at the end of his senior year. They say he "has fourth-round value based on his ability to play safety and cover well in nickel packages." (Source)
  • CB Abtwuan Reed - Pittsburgh - 5-10, 188 lbs. According to NFL.com, Reed "is an all-around player who is reliable to make a tackle but won't make many special plays." (Source)
  • CB Emanuel Davis - East Carolina - 5-10, 194 lbs. Per NFL.com, Davis "had an up-and-down career at East Carolina, but he has good speed and at times displayed the skills that make him worthy of a late-round draft pick." (Source)
  • CB Mike Allen - James Madison - 6-0, 185 lbs.
