Draft 2011

Pick No.37

Selected By: Cleveland Browns

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 5 (37)

Pick Analysis: Sheard is an extremely successful college defensive end that might need to transition to outside linebacker at the next level. He is on the shorter side, but has long arms and active hands to consistently get inside offensive tackles and he counters effectively. He has a strong upper body to engage and shed in the running game and relentlessly pursues the ball carrier. If he cannot play end in the NFL, he will struggle to make plays in space due to stiff hips and limited experience. Sheard will scare off a few teams due to a July 2010 arrest, but he has Day 2 talent.
