Redwine converted to safety his final two years at Miami, led Hurricanes in interceptions as a senior.

With the 119th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft in the fourth round, the Cleveland Browns selected safety Sheldrick Redwine from the University of Miami.

Redwine is 6-foot and 196 pounds.

Scouting Reports

Here is a scouting report from CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler, who projected Redwine as a fifth- or sixth-round selection:

A three-year starter at Miami (Fla.), Redwine was part of the starting cornerback rotation as a sophomore before making the transition to safety for his final two seasons in Coral Gables. He finished with his best season as a senior, leading the team with three interceptions. Redwine doesn’t play sudden, but he is smooth, tracks the football well and diagnoses well from zone. In run support, he tends to create bad angles and it can be tough to trust him in the open-field. Overall, Redwine needs to improve his reliability as a tackler to stay on the field, but he has NFL-worthy speed and has yet to play his best football, projecting as a special teamer who can be a key part of a safety rotation.

How he fits the Browns

Cleveland can use some depth at the safety position, and given that general manager John Dorsey is more interested in coverage ability than tackling in the secondary, Redwine’s limitations in that part of the game are likely not a concern.
