Cleveland Browns

Lauvao just happy to be here

Ultimately, Browns fans can thank Braylon Edwards for the ability to nab offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao in the third round of the recent NFL Draft.

The 92nd overall pick came from the New York Jets as part of the Browns dumping, er, I mean, "trading" Edwards to the Jets.

Lauvao, a 6-foot-3, 315-pounder from Arizona State, doesn't care how he ended up in Cleveland.

“This is a dream come true," said the native of Honolulu, the Browns third Hawaiian player taken in the draft in the last two years. "I can’t complain. The biggest thing is when coaches come and talk to us they want us to be on point with everything, have the right mindset. It’s been a good experience.”

Lauvao is the mix to start at right guard, but may not be an everyday starter until he's got some experience under his belt next season.
"Right now, the biggest thing is, I want to make the team and just help in any way possible," he said. "Whatever the coaches see fit, I am more than willing to do...I am just trying to be like a sponge and soak it in."
