— In the seventh round the Cleveland Browns closed out their 2019 draft with yet another defensive player.
Donnie Lewis, a cornerback from Tulane, is is the team’s fifth defensive draft pick out of seven.
They also used a pick on a kicker and punter from Oklahoma (Austin Seibert) while using their sixth-round pick on Drew Forbes, an offensive lineman from Southeast Missouri State.
Of course, one could argue the Browns began the draft with an offensive player since they included their first-round pick in a deal that brought star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants.
In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns made their first pick of an offensive player in 2019.
Drew Forbes, an offensive lineman from Southeast Missouri State, is headed to Northeast Ohio with the 189th overall pick.
The 6-5, 303-pounder received a 5.39 prospect grade from NFL.com, meaning he is projected as an NFL backup or special teamer, but he was projected as a fifth-rounder.
More than three hours into the third day of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns finally took a non-defensive player.
But they remained without an offensive player on the weekend after using the 32nd pick of the fifth round on Oklahoma kicker Austin Seibert.
He was an All-Big 12 kicker and earned honorable mention as a punter for the Sooners last season.

With their first pick in the fifth round, the Browns grabbed yet another defensive player.
This time it was Mack Wilson, a linebacker from Alabama, with the 155th pick overall.
The 6-1, 240-pounder received second-team All-America and All-SEC honors as a junior last fall when he tallied 71 tackles, including 4.5 for loss and one sack.
The Montgomery, Ala., native arrived in Tuscaloosa as a five-star prospect and was rated one of the top 20 players in the country in the class of 2016.
