NCAA Football: Outback Bowl-Auburn vs Wisconsin Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns signed OL Shon Coleman on Tuesday. He is the 11th of 14 draft picks to sign.

Taken in the 3rd round at No. 76 overall, Coleman's contract will be worth about $3.128 million, with a $788,000 signing bonus over four years, according to OverTheCap's pre-determined draft chart. His cap hit in 2016 will be roughly $647,000. The other day, we talked about the league's difficulty in signing third-round picks compared to players selected in the other rounds. Coleman is the first of the Browns' three third-round picks to have signed.

Coleman was the Browns' the third pick of Day 2 of the draft, and also their second of three picks in the third round. He is 6-7, 310-pounds and played college football at Auburn. He will wear No. 72 with the Browns. Coleman is expected to compete for the right tackle void left by the departed Mitchell Schwartz, but it's a crowded battle with about four or five different guys in the mix.
