We had a run on running backs in the second round of the draft on Friday but we saw them sparingly taken throughout the rest of the night. One of the more interesting names to watch was Towson standout Terrance West, who was projected as a top back and eventually got drafted within the first 100 picks this year.
It took a while, but the Towson stud eventually went with the No. 94 pick in the draft when the Cleveland browns traded up with the San Francisco 49ers to pick him.
Cleveland drafting West is an interesting pick but it’s one that makes a ton of sense and adds a potent weapon to Kyle Shanahan’s offense. The Browns already added Johnny Manziel with the No. 22 pick but had that news dampened by the fact that Josh Gordon’s career in Cleveland may be over thanks to another failed drug test and a possible year long ban.
But there are other offensive weapons and if Manziel isn’t enough to be excited about, he now has a running back tandem of Ben Tate and Terrance West behind him along with weapons like Andrew Hawkins and Jordan Cameron.
