Subscribe today so you never miss a new episode
What’s up, Browns fans! BARRY’S BACK! Yes, we have Barry Shuck, staff writer for DawgsByNature.com, back on the show to discuss a few lingering questions from the NFL Draft. First of all, Barry Shuck was the guy advocating for Greg Newsome in the the first round months ago. He knew Andrew Berry liked Newsome, and he consistently mocked Newsome to the Browns at 26.
Barry gives us a deep-dive into Greg Newsome as a college football player and an NFL prospect. How did Newsome’s play in college fare in the decision to draft him at 26? What are his strengths and weaknesses, and where does Barry expect Newsome to slot into the defensive backfield? And, to answer our biggest question, is the injury history something we need to be concerned about?
Barry touches on Greedy Williams and Grant Delpit and how, due to injuries, they have become the forgotten talent on the defense. If these guys are healthy this season, well, let’s just say we could have a very solid defense.
But then Barry gives us some big-time insight we’ve been looking for – why did the Browns NOT draft a defensive end in the draft? Barry only needs one name to answer that question. And, finally, we discuss if the Browns decision not hold off on extending Baker beyond his fifth-year option sends a good or bad message to the rest of the team.
