Browns Beat: TE David Njoku to play key role

TE David Njoku, the youngest member of the Browns; youth-laden roster, will turn 21-years-old. But make no doubt the Browns rookie tight end and 29th overall NFL Draft pick looks and plays like a grown man, a dynamic that was plenty clear throughout OTAs and minicamp.

Njoku, the former Miami standout and national boys high jump champion, used a rare combination of size (6-foot-4, 246), speed, and instincts to emerge as one of the top players in this year’s Draft class.

Now, he’s poised to earn a key role on a new-look Cleveland offense that parted ways with veteran tight end Gary Barnidge in April.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said Njoku caught everything throw his way this spring, but did take reps with the second and third teams. Everyone seems excited about his potential and with Barnidge no longer with the team, and Njoku a first round pick, there's a good chance he'll eventually have the TE1 spot at some point sooner or later this season.
