Due to the team's renovations to the training facility in Berea, the annual High School Showcase was held at the [Paul L. David Athletic Training Center](https://www.google.com/maps/place/Washington High School/@40.7926815,-81.5003669,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x65ca91bc7e5b0c99) located at Washington High School in Massillon, Ohio. The Cleveland Browns High School Showcase is designed for high school football players who hope to continue their playing career at the collegiate level.
 
The event was broken down into two sessions;  the morning session featured skilled players (quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, defensive back  and linebacker), while the afternoon session featured offensive and defensive lineman.

Both sessions under went standard "combine" style testing (Skilled players: 40-yard dash, broad jump, vertical jump, shuttle run; Linemen: 20-yard dash, broad jump, vertical jump, shuttle run and bench press) as well as position-specific drills, including passing, route-running, lineman work, agility bags and more.

Browns defensive lineman Danny Shelton surprised the attendees at the event. He took pictures and shared his experiences of landing a scholarship at the University of Washington and preparing for the NFL Combine. 

Scouts from Division II, III and NAIA colleges were invited to attend and observe the showcase.
