With the No. 250 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected LB Scooby Wright of Arizona. He was the team's final selection in the seventh round after another trade down.

Here is the scouting report from CBS Sports' Dane Bruglar, who pegged wright as a 3rd- or 4th-round pick. That has to be viewed as great value by Browns fans and will be a crowd-pleaser, if just for his name alone.

A three-year starter in Arizona’s 3-3-5 scheme, Wright started at strongside as a true freshman and moved to the middle the last two seasons. His 2014 season will go down as one of the best in college football history for a linebacker, becoming just the sixth unanimous All-American in school history, but 2015 was basically a lost year for him, missing 10 games due to a knee and foot issue. Wright has the instincts and competitive temperament worthy of the first round, but he is a tightly-wound athlete and his production is based more on effort than skill. He is one of the tougher evaluations in this draft class because the athletic traits are below average and he tends to play out of control, but the production is elite and his instincts help him overcome his flaws. Although it will be tough to mask his deficiencies in the NFL, especially in space, Wright is a classic overachiever in the Zack Thomas mold, projecting as a two-down thumper.

What do you think, Browns fans?
