Chase Hansen (#22) wraps up Russ Isabella-USA TODAY SportsThe Browns will likely make the defense the focus of their draft. And help at the LB position will be critical this year. With two picks in the fifth-round [url=https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Jabrill-Peppers-Jersey]Jabrill Peppers Color Rush Jersey[/url] , GM John Dorsey might consider Utah’s Chase Hansen with the first selection at slot number 144. Hansen played all four years at Utah having played four games as a freshman. He is a tackling machine and excellent against the run. His coverage skills and ability to get back and cover, he has the ability to stay with larger TEs. Several knocks against him are that he is already 25 years old. He could be installed as a situational LB right away and especially in a dime package. Has difficulty with larger RBs and in coverage against speedier backs. May be better suited for an underneath zone defender or the weakside LB position. Many clubs will have questions regarding his age, but Hansen is ready to become a hybrid player with his aptitude to assist in coverage and help in the run game.
