Browns Draft Pick Billy Winn Agrees To Deal, According To Report

On Friday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns and sixth-round draft pick Billy Winn agreed to a reported four-year deal according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Selected with the 205th overall selection in the 2012 draft, Winn was drafted out of Boise State where the six-foot-four, 294-pound defensive tackle started in 12 of the team's 13 games in the 2011-12 season. Largely graded as a third-round talent, Winn fell in the draft due to work ethic and 'tweener' issues.

Now, with a torn pectoral injury to defensive lineman Phil Taylor (which many believe will end Taylor's season), Winn has a golden opportunity to prove that the work ethic questions were wrong as he will have a chance to earn Taylor's spot.
