Fifth and sixth rounds: DE and OLB

Here are the front seven guys. The Browns drafted David McMillan, a 6-3 defensive end from Kansas, and Nick Speegle, a 6-6 outside linebacker from New Mexico, in the fifth and sixth rounds Sunday, #139 and #176, respectively. McMillan doesn’t really seem like a good fit for Savage and Crennel, a guy who kind of underachieved during his junior year and has questionable motivation on the football field. Still, he’s pretty quick and excelled at rushing the passer in college, earning All Big-12 honors as a senior with seven sacks. Speegle, on the other hand, looks like a keeper. A four-year starter at OLB, Speegle is extremely tough and intelligent, earning a 3.97 GPA as an undergraduate, and his profile says he’s the “total package of size, speed, strength and attitude” while also comparing him to legendary linebackers Ray Nitchke, Jack Lambert and Dick Butkus. Sounds like a Savage/Crennel guy to me.
