Draft INSIGHT: OT Matt Peart & OG Logan Stenberg

New, comments

How would drafting either of these players in Round 4 make the Browns better?

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The Browns need depth at both tackle and guard spots. Round 4 is a perfect spot to get backups at either position and push for a starting job with pick #115. Matt Peart and Logan Stenberg are each talented players who need some seasoning and can be coached up. Cleveland offensive line coach Bill Callahan is just the man who can take raw clay and mold an athlete into a valued roster member without the pressure of having to man a starting role from Day 1.

Ideal length, height and frame to play on the outside at the next level. Peart a natural bend, and does an excellent job at getting inside leverage and being in a position to maximize his push against opponents. Agile and light footed for his size, and comfortably moved from guard to tackle. Lateral movement is smooth and rarely gets beaten with speed moves on the outside. Needs to work on his lower body strength, as he can get challenged with pure power rushers.

Logan Stenberg projects as a starter in a gap/power heavy scheme at the pro level. Stenberg is a mauler with a tenacious demeanor and will be an effective tone setter — although he does have his limitations. Stenberg is not a dynamic mover and his stiffness will present issues with remaining stuck on his blocks for an extended period of time. In all, Stenberg’s wins in close quarters outweigh his lack of range and influence on the fringes. Very scheme specific but can serve as a starter.
