With the No. 168 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected OG Spencer Drango of Baylor. He was the team's second selection in the fifth round.

Cleveland still has their two starting guards, Joel Bitonio and John Greco, returning this year, so taking a guard at this point is more of a depth move. It could give the team some flexibility if they'd like to move Greco to center or Bitonio to right tackle, though.

Here is a scouting report from CBS Sports' Dane Bruglar, who pegged Drango as a 5th- or 6th-round pick:

A four-year starter, Drango has been a fixture at left tackle for the most successful four-year run in school history, leaving Baylor with 48 career starts and two Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year awards – lined up predominantly in a two point stance. He was a steady edge blocker with few holes in the Bears’ spread scheme, but will face a tough transition in a pro-style formation. Drango is a pedestrian athlete with limited power and technical flaws which limits his ceiling in the NFL, but his best attributes are his intelligence and professional make-up, which should keep him in the league as a back-up guard, who might be able to fill in as a spot starter.

What do you think, Browns fans?
