2011 NFL Draft Results: Cleveland Browns Select Jabaal Sheard

With the 37th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns selected Jabaal Sheard , a defensive end from Pittsburgh. The Browns have went with two defensive linemen so far, selecting space-eating tackle Phil Taylor in the first round and Sheard, a rush end, in the second. Sheard has the size -- 6-foot-3, 264 pounds -- and athleticism to be a disruptive force and should immediately bolster the line alongside Taylor.

The Browns are in the midst of a transition on the defensive side of the ball and it's clear where the emphasis lies. With any scheme-change comes the need to draft to fit the need and the Browns are addressing that in the 2011 NFL Draft

For more on the Browns head over to Dawgs By Nature and SB Nation Cleveland.
