It's almost done.

The Browns just grabbed two DL's, just as they should have. The sixth round pick was Melila "Mel" Purcell. He wasn't on the radar of most teams, and Draft Countdown didn't even rate him. I'm not sure why they didn't. He's a physical specimen. He's 6'5" , weighs 278 pounds and runs in the 4.7 to 4.9 range. The good thing about him is that he's not just a workout warrior. He actually produced on the field too. He was a Rainbow Warrior teammate of Ikaika Alama-Francis. He's a pretty good pick for a sixth round project.

In the seventh, the Browns selected Chase Pittman of LSU. He's a pretty big boy and a pretty sure tackler, but he's not great at anything. If he makes the team, it will be as a situational substitute and a special teams guy.

They didn't take Thomas, but it's a solid second day so far. The Browns have one more pick, # 24, that they received from Dallas.

Browns are on the clock. Walter Thomas is still available.
