"Great fan base. I'm with Hue Jackson, what they're trying to do. They're trying to win. I'm trying to win. They're making big moves. They're really smart, they're intelligent. They know what they're doing. I'm really excited to be a part of that." (Quotes from Cleveland Browns)

Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State - Round 2,, Pick 1
“I will play whatever position the Cleveland Browns want me to play. I will rush standing up. I will rush with my hands on the ground. Whatever they want me to do, I will do it.”
Carl Nassib, DE, Penn State - Round 3, Pick 2
“I always had dreams of playing in the NFL since as long as I can remember. A lot of people did not agree with that and that never deterred me from my dream."
Shon Coleman, OT, Auburn - Round 3, Pick 13
On if he ever lost his dream of playing in the NFL as he was battling leukemia: “Not at all. Not at all.” On how special it is considering everything that he has been through: “It’s special, man. It’s something that I’ve been working toward for a long time. For my family and everybody to see it go down like that, it was awesome.”
Cody Kessler, QB, USC - Round 3, Pick 31
“For me, personally, I pride myself on accuracy. That’s the biggest thing for me, getting the ball to the right guy at the right time. That’s some of the big things, and it’s something that’s overlooked a lot. For quarterbacks, everyone looks at arm strength and how well he does this and how well he does that. For me, I’ve always wanted to be the most accurate quarterback, be the most efficient, throw touchdowns, eliminate interceptions, get the ball to our guys."

Joe Schobert , LB, Wisconsin - Round 4, Pick 1
“I’d say I am more of a calmer guy on the football field. I know my assignments and I am good schematically so I know what I can do and with that. I don’t like to get too out of control. I just like to play within my limits and look at what the offense is giving me or on with special teams, I look for my indicators and going full speed but not out of control."

Ricardo Louis, WR, Auburn - Round 4, Pick 16
"I didn’t really keep up with the Browns much, but I know for a fact they did have RGIII and they did draft two players that I know personally. Just from watching them during the season, they had some issues with some players, but I feel like they have some players now that we just drafted that will bring a different attitude and a different mindset to the whole organization and help us win games and be a lot better than what people are projecting with RGIII at quarterback. If he’s healthy, then we’ll be a whole different team."
Derrick Kindred, S, TCU - Round 4, Pick 31
“As for being a free or strong safety, I’m good at playing both. I can be a strong safety and be on the line of scrimmage and make the big plays or I can be at the back end playing the deep ball.”

Seth Devalve, TE, Princeton - Round 4, Pick 40
“I went to Princeton to play football and to study engineering. I knew it was actually one of the only places in the country where I could do both for four years. Princeton is a place where 30 percent of its undergrads are athletes, but Princeton does a very good job of accommodating student-athletes of all majors. I knew I wanted to be an engineer or study engineering so I went to Princeton because I knew that I could follow that education path and play football at a high level.”
"In the end, I landed in the best place. With (Head) Coach (Hue) Jackson as the head coach. It is going to be an unbelievable year for me, an unbelievable career for me with Cleveland. I am excited to take on this next step of my life. I can’t wait to get out there.”

Spencer Drango, OL, Baylor - Round 5, Pick 31
On some people projecting Drango as more of a guard: Hue Jackson: “No, we’re going to put him out there as a tackle first and see if he can handle that. Then if we need to move him inside, we can.”
Rashard Higgins, WR, Colorado State - Round 5, Pick 35
Andrew Berry on Higgins: "Another very productive wide receiver out west. He has good size and fantastic hands. He can really sort of catch anything in his frame and can make the spectacular catches, as well."
Trey Caldwell, DB, UL-Monroe - Round 5, Pick 36
Andrew Berry: "Athletic, fast, feisty corner. He can play outside and can play inside."

Scooby Wright III, LB, Arizona - Round 7, Pick 29
On Wright falling in the draft: Berry: “I think it is just a function of that he played the past season a little banged up and he wasn’t on the field as much as he would have liked. We are happy he will be in Cleveland.”
