One significant stat for each of Browns' 11 undrafted free agents

On Monday, we picked out the most significant stat for each of the Browns' 10 draft picks.

We're doing one better today with the team's 11 undrafted free agents, who are set to report Thursday for this weekend's rookie mini camp.

10-9: B.J. Bello, a 6-foot-2, 229-pound linebacker from Illinois State, wasn't invited to the NFL Combine but he posted impressive numbers at his Pro Day. None was better than the 10-foot, 9-inch broad jump measurement, which would have been one of the best among linebackers at the Combine.

1: LSU OL Josh Boutte allowed just one sack during his college career, according to Pro Football Focus.

6: Ladell Fleming, a defensive end at Northern Illinois who projects as a linebacker with the Browns, was at his most productive in the Huskies' biggest games. He had five tackles and a sack against the MAC's best, Western Michigan, during his senior season, and tied a career high with six tackles against Bowling Green in the 2015 MAC Championship.

12: DB J.D. Harmon joined Kentucky's football team as a walk-on in 2012 and made an immediate impact, appearing in 12 games and starting three. He went on to play in 49 games and intercepted seven passes.

13: Alvin Hill, a Maryland cornerback, missed most of his sophomore season because of a knee injury and saw sparse playing time the following year. But in 2016, Hill emerged as one of Maryland's best defensive players, starting all 13 games and finishing with a career-high 51 tackles and a team-best two interceptions.

6.5: Akron's Jamal Marcus played in just seven games as a senior but still managed to finish second on the team with 6.5 tackles for loss. He had 18 tackles for loss in two seasons with the Zips.

4-47: USC's Taylor McNamara was asked to block more than he was to catch during his career with the Trojans but he was able to flex his receiving skills this past season against Oregon. McNamara hauled in a season-high four passes for 47 yards, including a career-best 27-yarder, and his only touchdown of the season in a USC rout.

6 - Safety Kai Nacua posted back-to-back six-interception seasons to cap his BYU career.

13 - Linebacker Kenneth Olugbode hit double-digit tackles in 13 different games throughout his career at Colorado. The 299 tackles he posted ranks 16th in program history.

24, 17 - Northern Iowa's Karter Schult tied for third in the nation with 24 tackles for loss and was first among all players in the FCS with 17 sacks this past season.

13 - Channing Stribling led Michigan with 13 passes defensed during his senior season. He was also the team leader with four interceptions and 60 interception yards.
