Kansas City Chiefs Trade Pick; Cleveland Browns Select Phil Taylor With 21st Overall Pick

With the 21st overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs traded their pick to the Cleveland Browns. The Browns selected Phil Taylor with their 21st overall pick.

The Browns released Shaun Rogers back in February, so they had a hole in their defense. The Browns add in the huge Baylor Bear to be the Pat Williams, in a manner of speaking, of their defensive line. Adding Taylor also adds the possibility to throw some three man fronts in Cleveland. Taylor has great strength and will clog the middle of the defense to free up his linebacking teammates.

His problem? Taylor gasses out, and when he gasses out he becomes a push over. If he's in a rotation or can improve his stamina then Cleveland will have a dominant anchor for their defense. The Baylor Bear alum has worked hard since transferring from Penn State, and I think Brown fans will be happy with their new rookie.
