NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Cleveland Browns have selected Mack Wilson with the 155th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Wilson attended school at Alabama. He was an All-American as a junior and senior.

In the National Championship Game, he had 12 tackles, two for loss against Georgia, according to NFL.com. In the 2018 season, he had 71 tackles, five for loss, two interceptions and five pass breakups.

"He is today's version of an NFL linebacker with adequate size, plus strength and toughness, speed pursue and an ability to handle coverage duties on any down. Wilson is like a classically trained musician who hits his notes on time, but the question is whether or not he can play as a free-form, improvisational talent when the opportunity arises," said NFL analyst Lance Zierlein. "Either way, he's a solid, three-down starter in any defensive scheme."
