2012 NFL Draft Results: Browns Get CB Trevin Wade, TE Brad Smelley With Final Picks In Round 7

The Cleveland Browns had two compensatory picks at the bottom of the seventh and final round of the 2012 NFL Draft. They used the first one to take cornerback Trevin Wade at No. 245 overall. Wade is out of Arizona, and is a pretty talented corner. That being said, he's fallen this far mostly due to his size and speed - it's just not there, but has been regarded as someone worth a late flyer. You can't get much later than seventh-round compensatory picks, though.

Here's what the National Football Postt had to say about Wade in their scouting report:

Impression: A nice sized kid who lacks ideal quickness and initial explosion to his game. Is going to have a tough time holding up in man coverage at the next level.

With the No. 247 pick, Cleveland's final pick in the draft, they took Brad Smelley, a tight end out of Alabama. The Browns had some injuries at the tight end position that hurt them last season, so if Smelley can make the roster, he could be a big help for them. Here's what the National Football Post had to say of Smelley:

Impression: A hard working move tight end at the college level who doesn't stand out in area of the game. But catches the football, has a good feel in coverage and I could see him making a roster.
