The Cleveland Browns signed their two of their twelve draft picks on Thursday, one of whom was TE Randall Telfer (the other being OLB Nate Orchard). Taken in the 6th round at No. 198 overall, Telfer agreed to a four-year deal. According to OverTheCap's pre-determined draft chart, Telfer's contract will be worth about $2.398 million, with a $117,536 signing bonus.
Telfer was the team's tenth selection of the draft, and the final of three picks made in the sixth round. He is 6-4, 250-pounds, and played college football at USC. He will wear No. 86 with the Browns and is expected to enter the offseason programs as the fourth tight end on the depth chart, behind veterans Rob Housler, Gary Barnidge, and Jim Dray. Telfer's best chance to win a job is if he can prove he can be a more suitable blocking tight end in the zone-blocking scheme than any of the other three.
Upon signing his contract, Telfer posted the following message to his Instagram account:
"Dreams come to those who forgo sleep and chase greatness! Honored to officially be a Brown! Huge thanks to everyone in my life that helped get me to this point! Signed and sealed. Let's work!"
