NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Cleveland Browns have selected Sheldrick Redwine with the 119th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Redwine attended college in Miami, Florida.

He swapped from cornerback to safety in 2017 as a sophomore. In the fall, he started 12 games and had 59 tackles, two interceptions and six pass breakups, according to

Redwine is an "aggressive, versatile safety who lacks consistency in coverage, but who possesses the ball skills and run support ability to challenge for a starter's role in time. Redwine's lapses in coverage stem more from a lack of urgency than talent and that might be correctable," said NFL analyst Lance ZIerlein. "In run support and as a tackler in general, he plays behind heavy pad and handles his work with an NFL level physicality. He's better suited in split-zone or down in the box and could become a key cog of the special teams until he gets his shot to start."
