Cincinnati .. another DT


"First down inside the 10. A score here will put us in the Super Bowl. Cooper is far to the left as Njoku settles into the slot. Moore is flanked out wide to the right. Chubb and Ford are split in the backfield as Watson takes the snap ... Here we go."

Practice Squad type.

I hope his lunch pail is full!! I want this young man to put on a show he gets picked up by another team.

It's a bitter sweat. Only one or two guys drafted this year will make this roster.

I hope Berry makes joining the Browns a perk. Worst case they use Cleveland as a springboard to make a living on another team.

I don't know. More than 1-2 will make the team.

You always have your bottom 10 on the team and several of them have been around 3 years. It's easy to purge those guys out to bring in some new blood. After 2-3 years to see, it's time to bring in some new players and give them a chance to prove out.

You don't want to get stale at the bottom end of the roster or you might lose out on that hidden gem. If that earlier hunch hasn't played out after 2-3 years, time to go with another hunch.

Bonefish mentioned how Schwartz uses his DTs in the Mike Hall thread which sent me down the internet rabbit hole and I found an old coaches clinic Schwartz gave on YouTube. It was for OL coaches, but it approached OL from a DC's perspective. In it, he gave an anecdote about Bob Dahl. He was a DT to OG convert. I wonder if Briggs might be a candidate for that. His RAS for IOL is higher than at DT. (link)

He also talked about the 2 OL coach dynamic the Browns had under Belichik. One guy (Ferentz) coached big picture scheme, the other focused more on individual development. If we mirror that setup, and Istvan was Mailata's individual dev guy, I'd feel pretty good about Briggs' chances, or at least wouldn't be against taking such a chance.

Just some random connections my brain made that made me go hmmmmmmmm.

Nice video, thanks for posting. Personable kid, humble. He’ll get a chance, and I hope he makes the most of it.

The one thing that is the hardest to define when looking at a draft prospect is;

"How bad does he want it"?

Reading this profile and listening to him. He is the type you bet on. You cannot accomplish what he has done without determination.

I will be watching this guy. I would not be surprised that early in camp Jowon Briggs makes noise.

I watched his entire presser. Impressive young man.

Impressive or not, it is still going to be hard to make the room. He has a chance and the team might decide to go with a cheaper option.

If he sticks at all, it's probably more realistic to think practice squad. The practice squad is ok. It's a place to develop a guy who you think has a chance. Those guys make around $9000 a week while on the squad. Enough to prevent them from having to work at Chipotle during the off season and allow them to work on their game, unless they are stupid with their money

What a likable dude. Can’t help but root for him. 42 reps of 225 is insane. And he’s got to be smart, UVA isn’t a school that accepts dummies just to play ball. Probably why they’re never great. If UC Berkeley or Michigan are the Harvard of public schools, UVA is like the Princeton. My daughter last year got into BC, BU, Colgate and waitlisted at Michigan (eventually accepted) and was a quick rejection from UVA. Anyway, I digress.
Hope it works out for him. 3 kids at 22… sheesh 😵 That’ll put a fire under a guy.

I agree on UVA on admittance standards. I think they all now allow some variance on athlete's, but they still don't allow a dunce to enter.

in his favor, you don't get much cheaper than a 7th rounder on a rookie deal unless you go UDFA

He won’t be a camp cut unless he implodes, even a seventh-rounder who doesn’t fall on his face all the time gets at least a season, at worst on the PS.

It's still a crowded room. How many DT's can the team keep? Sometimes it just comes down to numbers. Even if he plays well, it will probably be for the practice squad.

We have several DT's on 1 year contracts. As I said earlier, maybe we go cheaper. Maybe guys get hurt in camp. Hey, maybe he balls out and simply bullies his way on to the team. Another factor against him is Hall. I don't think the team would be all that keen on having 2 rookies at DT one the final roster. That would create an experience gap.

General reply:
Not saying it's impossible, but it's hard to fake the type of personality he's putting out there. Definitely rooting for him, and not just because having a deep and talented Dline is a boon to any team.


There is no level of sucking we haven't seen; in fact, I'm pretty sure we hold the patents on a few levels of sucking NOBODY had seen until the past few years.

Not to be the downer here, but people thought Perrion Winfrey was cool and going to be a great player.

This kid certainly talks way better than Winfrey. That said, he is a 7th rounder. The odds are long. Way long.
