The Browns selected Auburn wide receiver Ricardo Louis in the fourth round (No. 114 overall) of the NFL Draft on Saturday.



According to NFLDraftScout.com Dane Brugler, many teams considered converting Louis to cornerback because he has shaky hands. Brugler projected him as a priority free agent without a draftable grade. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said he assigned a sixth-round grade to Louis.



Here are notes on the 6-foot-1 3/8, 244-pound Schobert from Brugler's draft guide.



BACKGROUND: A four-star wide receiver recruit out of high school, Louis received offers from several high-profile programs, choosing Auburn over Florida State. After seeing reserve action as a true freshman, he started seven games as a sophomore in 2013, recording 28 catches for 325 yards and two scores. Louis found himself fourth on the receiver depth chart as a junior in 2014 (five starts), finishing with 21 receptions for 261 yards and three touchdowns. As the top returning receiver, he became the team’s top target as a senior in 2015, leading the team with 46 catches for 716 yards and three touchdowns over eight starts. Louis accepted his invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.



STRENGTHS: Tall, linear athlete with solid muscle definition…very good straight-line speed and foot quickness…decisive plant-and-go cuts out of his breaks to create separation…little wasted motion off the snap to shake press and accelerate…achieves proper depth, forcing corners to commit their hips…works back to the ball and finds ways to get uncovered…quick hands and long arms to track and attack the ball away from his body…catches the ball well in stride to be a YAC target…balanced runner to tightrope the sideline…kick return experience, averaging 20.9 yards per return (11/230/0)…used often on end-arounds and receiver screens, averaging 8.5 yards per rush (68/578/2)…stepped into a leadership role as a senior and had his most productive season.



WEAKNESSES: Highly inconsistent ballskills with weak hands and streaky focus, allowing throws to get on top of him…too many “almost” catches on his film, fighting the ball and struggling to consistently finish throws away from his body…lacks diverse stem releases and wasn’t asked to run a sophisticated route tree in college…tightly wound and lacks elusive twitch to create in space…feet stop on contact and lacks the body power to break tackles…can be muscled off his routes by physical defenders…poor ball security with six fumbles on 177 career touches in college (fumbled once every 29.5 touches)…not a proven deep threat who will stretch the defense…below average point of attack blocker…often banged up and battled nagging injuries over his career.



SUMMARY: An on and off starter at Auburn, Louis was lost on the depth chart as an underclassman and best known as the receiver who caught the “Prayer at Jordan-Hare” in the win over Georgia (Nov. 2013). But with Sammie Coates off to the NFL and Duke Williams kicked off the team, Louis emerged from the shadows as Auburn’s top pass-catcher in 2015 and was productive despite poor quarterback play. He accelerates well in his routes with strong cuts in his breaks, but lacks nuance in his patterns and the film doesn’t show much route diversity. Although he is capable of the acrobatic grab due to his length and athleticism, Louis has shown unreliable ballskills over his career and there isn’t much that separates him as a player right now – late round size/speed developmental project who might benefit from a position switch to the secondary.
