2020 NFL Draft

Browns draft Princeton TE Seth DeValve in 4th round

The Browns selected Princeton tight end Seth DeValve at No. 138 in the fourth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday.

DeValve joins Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman (No. 15), Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah (No. 32), Penn State defensive end Carl Nassib (No. 65), Auburn tackle Shon Coleman (No. 76), USC quarterback Cody Kessler (No. 93), Wisconsin linebacker Joe Schobert (No. 99), Auburn receiver Ricardo Louis (No. 114) and TCU defensive back Derrick Kindred (No. 129).

DeValve missed four games as a senior because of injury but finished with 33 receptions for 337 yards and a touchdown. Used as a hybrid wide receiver/tight end in Princeton's offense, DeValve finished 10th in Princeton history with 122 receptions and 13th in receiving yards (1,336).

"The type of offense we run there is a spread offense with an H-back adjuster who really can play out wide in the slot with him and down at tight end or even in the backfield," DeValve said. "That guy as the year went along became me because I was a bigger wide out who could put my hand in the ground and play tight end."

DeValve is the earliest drafted Princeton football player in the modern era. He studied mechanical and aerospace engineering at the Ivy League school.

DeValve worked out for the Browns earlier in the month.

"We spent the better part of the morning together talking a lot of football and talking a lot personally," DeValve said. "We had a great visit."
