Chad Greenway entered the off-season as many "experts" choice as the Browns pick in the first round. In recent weeks, Greenway has fallen out of favor among the draftniks, and there are a couple of good reasons for that. First was Greenway's less than awe-inspiring performance at the Combine and at Iowa's Pro Day.

The second reason is the sense that the Browns are looking for an outside pass rusher in the first round, which is not a description that fits the Iowa product. Greenway finished his senior campaign with only two sacks, but made 156 tackles overall, including ten tackles for a loss.

That is not to say that Chad Greenway wouldn't be a fine addition to the team's linebacking corps. Greenway comes into the NFL as a linebacker who has a complete game, including a reputation as one of the top coverage linebackers available in the draft. He would likely be an inside linebacker for the Browns, slotting next to Andra Davis to give the Browns a very solid middle.

At this point, Greenway remains only an outside possibility in the first round and does not appear to be a player who will fall far enough in the second unless the Browns were to trade out of their current slots.
