After trading fourth and fifth round picks, the Browns finally settle on a selection, taking Notre Dame safety Jamoris Slaughter.

 

BEREA—The Browns used their first pick of the final day of the draft to take a select. However, it wasn’t until the sixth-round.

After trading out of the fourth round and fifth rounds, the Browns used their pick in the sixth round (175th overall) to take safety Jamoris Slaughter from Notre Dame.

Slaughter (5- 11, 195) ruptured his left Achilles tendon in the third game of the season against Michigan State.

“It’s an excellent pick,” Mike Mayock said on NFL Network. “He’s a player that will play special teams and will compete for a starting position.”

Slaughter had 45 tackles in 2011, including two sacks and a forced fumble in 13 games.

Pro Football Weekly described Slaughter as an ‘explosive striker who relishes high speed collisions’.

He was originally projected to be a third or fourth round pick before suffering the season-ending injury.
