BEREA – The Browns took little-known Armonty Bryant in the seventh round, the No. 217 overall pick.
Bryant (6-4, 263 pounds) projects as an outside linebacker. He finished his career at East Central University in Oklahoma, a Division II school.
He was arrested on a felony charge of marijuana distribution in a school zone. He got a five-year deferred sentence.
Bryant had a school-record 26.5 sacks. He had surgery to repair a torn labrum, which kept him from bench pressing at the scouting combine.
