With Kamerion Wimbley signed, the OBR believes the team's remaining draft
picks - with the exception of Maryland LB D'Qwell Jackson - are likely to reach
agreements over the next two to four days.
One of the remaining draft picks, RB Jerome Harrison, may have already agreed
to terms. According to Kalamazoo television station WWMT, the Michigan native
has agreed to a four-year contract with the Browns. Harrison played his high
school ball in the Michigan town.
If the story proves correct, the Browns will be left with four draft picks
lacking a contract. In addition to Jackson, third round selection WR Travis Wilson and fourth-round picks OL Isaac Sowells and LB Leon Williams have not yet
been signed to deals.
D'Qwell Jackson will likely present more of a challenge for the club due to
the nature of incentives in his contract. Jackson may start the season as a
backup, complicating his ability to achieve any short-term goals which are a
part of an agreement.
If the team and Jackson are able to negotiate through this issue, they will
be helped by signings around the Browns second-round pick. DeMeco Ryans, chosen
immediately before Jackson, signed a contract with the Houston Texans last week.
The Eagles were able to sign OT Winston Justice earlier this week, as well.
Justice was taken five selections after the Maryland linebacker.
