The Browns drafted Florida State offensive lineman Cameron Erving 19th overall Thursday night in the first round of the NFL Draft. Below is a transcript of his conference call with reporters. The transcript was provided by the team.



On moving from left tackle to center, and where he feels most comfortable on the offensive line: “To be honest, moving from left tackle to center was a really smooth transition because of great coaching and good learning of the game, but there’s not a position I love to play better. I love to play offensive line, I love to play ball. That’s not just a politically correct answer, that’s my honest answer, it doesn’t matter where I play, I’m going to go in and I’m going to give 100% whatever I do.”



On if the Browns told him where they think he’d fit in: “We have not really discussed it in detail because, you know, we did not know what was going to be the final pick. We’ll talk about that when the time comes; whatever they need me to do, I’m willing to do it.”



On when he moved to center last year, if he had ever snapped the ball before practice that week: “I had snapped a little bit in practice earlier in the season”



On whose idea it was for him to move to offense and how tough was it at the beginning: “Coach Fisher and Coach Trickett wanted me to move to offensive line, they definitely, it was there idea, and the reason it was such a smooth transition, like I said before it was just coaching, they really taught me well; and I had really good teammates- Tre Jackson, Corey Martinez, Bobby Hart, and strong support guys like that, that have moved onto the NFL. They really helped me along the way.”



On if he’s played every position on the offensive line in a game: “No, I haven’t played every position in a game”



On if he’s just played left tackle and center in games: “Yes sir”



On if by playing with Florida State, if they were the hunted for the past two years and how that prepared him for his career in the NFL: “We didn’t consider ourselves the hunted at Florida State, we just wanted to go out and chase another championship and try to be great. I want to carry that same mentality from the college level to the professional level, I’m going to go out there and continue to try and be great and continue to go out there and try to dominate every player that I play and I’m just going to gout and try to work hard. I try not to pay attention to what’s in the media and what they say, at the end of the day it’s a football game, you go out and execute to the best of your ability and the rest will come.”  



On taking pride in being versatile and being able to move around the line and play well in different spots, and he thinks about joining an offensive line with Joe Thomas, Alex Mack: “I take tremendous pride in being an offensive lineman, that phrase has been coined and that, you know, Like I said, I just take great pride in being called an offensive lineman. And it feels great to be able to go in, and I’ve looked up to Joe Thomas for three years, since I’ve started playing offensive lineman, that who I’ve looked up to, that’s who I would watch film on and you know Alex Mack is a great player as well and it’s going to be a great experience to play alongside those guys.”
