2016 NFL Draft Round Four
By Chris Malumphy
The Cleveland Browns selected Wisconsin linebacker Joe Schobert with the first selection of the fourth round in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Browns then traded the next pick to the Oakland Raiders who drafted Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook who must have wondered how much not being a team captain cost him.
Oklahoma defensive end Charles Tapper was picked by the Dallas Cowboys. Ohio State added to its record setting draft for value expended on one school when the San Diego Chargers selected linebacker Joshua Perry. Notre Dame defensive tackle Sheldon Day was tabbed by the Jaguars. The Ravens went after Temple cornerback Tavon Young. The Kansas City Chiefs had the next two picks and chose Cincinnati guard Parker Ehinger and Minnesota cornerback Eric Murray. The Ravens then added Cincinnati wide receiver Chris Moore. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted North Carolina Central cornerback Ryan Smith. Clemson linebacker B.J. Goodson joins the New York Giants. Western Kentucky tight end Tyler Higbee will be a target for Jared Goff of the Los Angeles Rams. Southern Utah sent strong safety Miles Killebrew to the Detroit Lions. Bill Belichick drafted wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell from Georgia.
Linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski of West Virginia went to the Bears. The Cleveland Browns added Auburn wide receiver Ricardo Louis. The Falcons took Minnesota linebacker De'Vondre Campbell. Texas defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway was selected by the Colts. The Rams added another receiver for Jared Goff by taking Pharoh Cooper from South Carolina. The New York Jets liked cornerback Juston Burris of North Carolina State. San Jose State sent running back Tyler Ervin to the Houston Texans. Manitoba (Canada) sends defensive tackle David Onyemata to the Saints. The Vikings took tackle Willie Beavers from Western Michigan. The Bengals liked Baylor nose tackle Andrew Billings and division rival Steelers took LSU tackle Jerald Hawkins. The Bears took safety Deon Bush from Miami (FL). Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison was taken by Indianapolis. The Chiefs took Florida wide receiver Demarcus Robinson. The Bears followed by selecting Delondre' Hall, a cornerback from Northern Iowa. The Cardinals drafted center Evan Boehm from Missouri.
The Cleveland Browns drafted free safety Derrick Kindred from TCU. The Baltimore Ravens took tackle Alex Lewis from Nebraska. Stanford linebacker Blake Martinez goes to the Packers. The Ravens got defensive tackle Willie Henry from Michigan. The 49ers tabbed Rashard Robinson, a cornerback from LSU. The Ravens followed with Kenneth Dixon, a running back from Louisiana Tech.
Quarterback Dak Prescott of Mississippi State was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys to provide some support for Tony Romo. Running back Devontae Booker of Utah went to the Broncos. The Packers drafted Northwestern defensive end Dean Lowry. The Cleveland Browns took Princeton tight end Seth Devaive.
Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones will have an opportunity in Buffalo which took him with the last pick of the fourth round in the 2016 NFL Draft. Jones was the 12th Buckeye selected in the draft, adding to the record setting total draft chart value expended on Ohio State players.
