The Browns' staff believes RT Mitchell Schwartz will "excel" in new OC Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme.
Coach Mike Pettine previously hinted Schwartz could move to guard, but it appears Schwartz will stick at right tackle while John Greco mans the right guard spot. At 6-5, 320, Schwartz is more of a mauler than the athletic lineman one would expect to thrive in a zone scheme. The Browns need their offensive line to take a step forward to improve on last year's bottom-five rushing performance. Shanahan will bring more of a commitment to the run. Jun 14 - 11:34 AM

Browns OL Mitchell Schwartz hopes to remain at right tackle.

Coach Mike Pettine has broached the idea of Schwartz moving to guard, but has since said he'll likely remain at tackle. "I have only played tackle here for two years and going back into college," Schwartz said. Schwartz did hint he would not protest too strongly were the move made. Schwartz has remained at right tackle for voluntary workouts, but his position could ultimately depend on what the Browns do in the draft.

Coach Mike Pettine says the Browns could move RT Mitchell Schwartz to guard.

Cleveland hasn't seemed comfortable with the idea of Schwartz sticking at right tackle since the season ended. He gave up 11 sacks and 35 hurries in pass protection in 2013. The Browns don't currently have a capable replacement for Schwartz at right tackle but could find one in May's draft.

The Akron Beacon-Journal indicates Browns RT Mitchell Schwartz could face competition for his job.

Schwartz has started all 32 games at right tackle since being the No. 37 overall pick in the 2012 draft. He had a respectable season in 2013, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 13 right tackle. However, Schwartz gave up 11 sacks and 35 hurries in pass protection. The Browns could do better, but they have more pressing needs at right guard and potentially center if Alex Mack leaves.

Browns No. 37 overall pick Mitchell Schwartz appears to have secured the starting right tackle job.

Schwartz was rotating with Oniel Cousins at the start of camp, but has now worked with the starting unit for three straight days. He made 51 starts as a four-year player at Cal and has ideal right tackle size at 6'5/317. With Joe Thomas and Schwartz as bookends, this Browns offensive line has some serious potential.

Browns signed rookie RT Mitchell Schwartz, the No. 37 overall pick, to a four-year contract.

A scrappy, 6-foot-5, 317-pound mauler, Schwartz has long arms and a mentality necessary to emerge as a long-term answer at a long-term trouble spot in Cleveland. Schwartz is penciled into the Browns' starting lineup as a rookie.

Browns selected California RT Mitchell Schwartz with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

The only lineman at the Senior Bowl capable of containing Quinton Coples, Schwartz flew well under the radar in this year's tackle class. At 6-foot-5, 317, Schwartz is well built to play right tackle in the pros after starting 51 career games at Cal, 35 on the left side and 16 on the right. He scored a 35 on his Wonderlic test last spring and should be a Week 1 starter in Cleveland.
