BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Needing another blocker to protect their two first-round investments, the Cleveland Browns selected California offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz with the No. 37 overall pick in the NFL draft on Friday.

The 6-foot-5, 318-pound Schwartz will slide in at right tackle for the Browns, who picked running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Brandon Weeden in the first round on Thursday.

Although they need a wide receiver, the Browns decided to address their offensive line. Schwartz can be a bookend on the right side with Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas on the left. Tony Pashos, who played right tackle last season for Cleveland despite a torn foot tendon, was released during the offseason.

Schwartz’s stock has been rising since an impressive showing at Senior Bowl.
