If someone asked Curtis Weaver one year ago if he thought he would be a 5th round draft pick on IR in Cleveland, he would have called that person crazy. Weaver, who holds the career sack record for the Mountain West Conference, has had his fair share of drama to end up on the Browns.
Weaver, who has technically never suited up for the Browns, was originally drafted by Miami. Sadly, he only lasted three practices for the Fins before suffering a season-ending injury. It came down to two teams that he could potentially call home.
Those two teams were Cleveland and Los Angeles. So, what does the future hold for Weaver and the Browns?
Weaver, who was a model of consistency at Boise State, is the only player in all of college football to get 9.5 sacks in each of his last three seasons. His explosiveness off the line is something the Browns need on defense. Weaver, who is listed as a defensive end, also played linebacker in college. It will be interesting to see where Weaver gets to start when he is healthy. He holds the record for most sacks with 29.5 and hopefully, that can transfer over into some big plays for the Browns.
At the young age of 22, Weaver will look to have a long career here in Cleveland
