Browns sign 3rd round draft pick Shon Coleman

The Browns signed third-round draft choice Shon Coleman, leaving just three unsigned draft picks

BEREA, Ohio--It's down to three.

The Browns announced that they have signed offensive lineman Shon Coleman, who was one of the Browns' third-round picks (76th overall) in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Browns have now signed 11 of their 14 draft picks, including WR Corey Coleman (first round), LB Emmanuel Ogbah (second round), WR Ricardo Louis (fourth round), DB Derrick Kindred (fourth round), TE Seth DeValve (fourth round), WR Jordan Payton (fifth round), OL Spencer Drango (fifth round), WR Rashard Higgins (fifth round), DB Trey Caldwell (fifth round) and LB Scooby Wright III (seventh round).

Still unsigned are third-round picks, defensive lineman Carl Nassib, quarterback Cody Kessler and fourth-round pick linebacker Joe Schobert.

Coleman (6-7, 310) has missed the OTA's recovering from knee surgery to repair a torn medial collateral ligament in the offseason. Hue Jackson said they are taking precautions with him returning from the injury.

Coleman has overcome much greater obstacles as he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2010 and returned to Auburn to start 25 career games.
