“With the fourth pick of the first round, the Cleveland Browns pick Denzel Ward, defensive back, The Ohio State University.”
Hey, Cleveland, the wait is over. Let’s welcome former Buckeye, Denzel Ward, to the Cleveland Browns!
Ward is no stranger to Cleveland; this young man is from Macedonia, Ohio, where he was a force to be reckoned with as a Nordonia Knight. He played as a true freshman at Ohio State in 2015, taking part in 12 games. He played al; 13 games for the Buckeyes his sophomore season and won the starting position as a junior.
Ward has speed and agility on his side and the Browns can definitely use some stand-out talent in the secondary. I look for Ward to be a ball-hawk once he gets his bearings in the NFL. He has a background as a wide receiver in high school and a good set of hands.
Welcome to Cleveland, Denzel. We look forward to some great things from you in the future.
