According to Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst, the Cleveland Browns were one of 13 teams who were represented at a workout for Toledo DT Treyvon Hester last week. One one the Browns’ defensive line coaches was in attendance for what Pauline called an impressive workout:
Hester, who was unable to workout at the combine after undergoing surgery to repair a shoulder labrum last December, put up testing numbers which were more than impressive. Hester measured 6023 and 304 pounds then posted a vertical jump of 31.5 inches. The vertical jump mark was bettered at the combine by just one other defensive tackle -- Jeremiah Ledbetter, who many project to defensive end. Hester’s 40 time was clocked between 4.86s-to-4.91s, the fastest of which would’ve ranked as the fastest of any defensive tackle at the combine (Montravius Adams of Auburn was timed at 4.87s).
Pauline labeled him as one of the best nose tackle prospect in this year’s draft, comparing him to former Browns lineman Ahtyba Rubin. Despite that, Dane Brugler of CBS Sports has him ranked as a 6th or 7th round prospect, believing he can contribute right away as a backup 3-technique.
