More of the latest Browns news and notes from around the web in today’s dose of the Daily Dawg Chow.

Cleveland Browns:


  • Rams and Broncos Exploiting the NFL’s Newest Market Inefficiency (Sports Illustrated) - “One through-line connects nearly every notable piece of personnel news from the last week-plus: Su’a Cravens being traded to the Broncos, the Rams adding Brandin Cooks and Ndamukong Suh, Jim Mora suggesting former UCLA QB Josh Rosen might not be the best pick for the Browns”
  • Marquette King signs three-year deal with Denver Broncos (24/7 Sports) - “The decision by Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders to release punter Marquette King was unquestionably a surprising one. The All-Pro’s outgoing personality apparently didn’t mix with what Gruden and company were looking for, and his cap hit of nearly $3 million wasn’t one the Raiders were looking to incur next season.”
  • Lamar Jackson among 22 prospects attending 2018 NFL Draft ( - “The league announced on Thursday a list of 22 prospects that will attend the event as guests of the NFL. USC’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Wyoming’s Josh Allen will be in Dallas for the draft, along with Louisville’s 2016 Heisman Trophy winner, Lamar Jackson.”
  • Introducing SEMTEX, a new way to look at college production (Fanrag): “After applying these adjustments to our positional rate statistics, Situationally Enhanced Metric Testing for Efficiency and eXplosion (SEMTEX) is conducted. SEMTEX’s testing parameters are inspired by machine learning protocols, and when ran over this enhanced production data set, indicate quarterbacks with the highest and lowest chances of NFL success based on past data.”
