Schwartz likely will start immediately at right tackle for the Browns. Entering the draft, Oniel Cousins was the projected starter.
This is a little bit of a reach for Schwartz, who was considered a third-round pick. A durable four-year starter, Schwartz has excellent size (6-foot-5, 317 pounds) and is a strong run blocker. That works well with the Browns' third overall pick, running back Trent Richardson.
Schwartz's brother, Geoff, is a guard for the Carolina Panthers.
The Cleveland Browns surprisingly passed over a wide receiver and addressed their biggest need on the team by taking California offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz with the 37th overall pick.
