The Cleveland Browns stayed on the defensive side of the football and selected cornerback Leon McFadden from San Diego State University with the No. 68 overall pick, and the sixth pick in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
McFadden collected 61 tackles, 12 passes defended and three interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns, en route to his third straight selection to the first-team All-Mountain West Conference honors.
Originally a wide receiver at San Diego State, McFadden started six of 12 games during his freshman year. He finished with 26 tackles, one interception, and a sack and blocked two extra-point tries.
The pick was announced by former Browns offensive lineman Dick Schafrath. Schafrath represented the franchise as part of the NFL’s annual tradition of having former players from each of the 32 franchises announce their teams’ respective picks in the second round. With the Browns and other teams not having a second-round selection, Schafrath and other legends announced their former franchise’s third-round choices.
