2020 NFL Draft

Browns select Florida State OL Roderick Johnson with 160th pick in 2017 NFL Draft

The Browns on Saturday selected Florida State offensive lineman Roderick Johnson in the fifth round with the 160th pick.

The pick was acquired in a trade with the Jets. The Browns sent a fifth- (181) and sixth-round pick (188) to New York in exchange for the 160th pick and a seventh-rounder (No. 224).

Johnson is the seventh Brown selected in the 2017 NFL Draft, joining first-rounders DE Myles Garrett, S Jabrill Peppers and TE David Njoku, second-rounder QB DeShone Kizer, third-round pick DT Larry Ogunjobi and fourth-round DB Howard Wilson. 

Johnson was a three-year starter at Florida State, earning the starting nod during the final portion of his freshman season and never looking back. In coming to Cleveland, he also reunites with former teammate Cameron Erving.

"When I first came to Florida State, Cam was one of the first guys to greet me," Johnson said. "He took me under his wings and showed me the ropes. I'm looking forward to him doing the same thing. I know he will."

He finished his career with 31 consecutive starts and earned back-to-back Jacobs Blocking Trophy honors as the top offensive lineman in the ACC. He garnered first-team All-ACC honors in 2015 and 2016, too.

Johnson earned All-American recognition this past season, including a First-Team nod from Walter Camp.

A former teammate of Browns offensive lineman Cameron Erving, Johnson is the first offensive lineman selected by Cleveland in this year's draft.
