Browns and Second Round Pick OT Schwartz Agree to Terms

The Browns have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with second round offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz.

The 6-foot-5, 318-pound Schwartz started 51 games at Cal, earning first-team All-Pac 12 honors in 2011 and second-team honors in 2010. Schwartz is expected to start at right tackle opposite perennial Pro Bowler Joe Thomas, but played mostly on the left side (35 of 51 starts were at left tackle), giving him the versatility to move to that side of the line if Thomas were injured.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but as the 37th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Schwartz is expected to receive a contract in the $5.1 million range with a signing bonus of around $2.2 million.
