Andrew Berry had his roster ready and returned to work after the NFL Draft ended.
The Cleveland Browns had data on 54 undrafted “priority” free agents to fill their roster before training camp.
This is in addition to one of the 115 players in their draft group who may have slipped.

Berry aggressively attacked Florida state defensive lineman Marvin Wilson, offering a guaranteed contract.
Other players spread the beans via social media before Cleveland could announce their picks.
And at least one, Charlotte’s defensive end Romeo McKnight has turned down multiple signing offers with the Browns.
Here’s the latest list of Cleveland Browns UDFA signings:
DT Marvin Wilson Jr, State of Florida
Marvin Wilson Jr struggled throughout his senior year and finished every college season on the injured list.
But his achievements in 2018-19 earned him a guaranteed 6th-round draft-level contract by the Browns.

Wilson is a great passer but can spoil things for his teammates in the running game as well.
PFF gave him overall ratings of 90.1 and 90.7 ahead of his staggered 2020 season.
He was in high demand, with Berry outbidding multiple teams to land the inside lineman.
CB Emmanuel Rugamba, Miami (Oh)
Emmanuel Rugamba jumps from a Rwandan refugee camp a cornerback from the NFL.
He comes in at 5’11 ”and 198 pounds and says his biggest attribute is knowledge of the game and adaptability.

After starting his career in Iowa, Rugamba transferred to Miami from Ohio.
He was a third-team All-MAC selection and player of the game in the 2019 MAC Championship.
Miami only played 3 games last year, with Rugamba amassing 11 tackles and a 62-yard pick against Akron.
BY Romeo McKnight, Charlotte
Romeo McKnight was a high school wrestler and state champion soccer player when Iowa recruited him.
But after a red shirt season and a year lost to injury, he was transferred to the state of Illinois, where he regained his form.
McKnight had a ton of other offers. He likes the landing point in Cleveland. @TheDraftNetwork

In two seasons with Illinois, he had 15 sacks and 25.5 tackles for a loss.
With the Illinois state season threatened by Covid, McKnight was transferred to Charlotte.
McKnight had 5 TFLs and 1.5 sacks in 6 games, winning an Honorable Conference USA nod.
RB Tre Harbison III, Charlotte
Tre Harbison moved to Charlotte ahead of the 2020 season to see several game cancellations in 2020.
But the Browns scouts saw enough to make Harbison the second Charlotte player signed by Cleveland.
Former NIU RB Tre Harbison, who played Charlotte this season as a graduate transfer, signed as UDFA with the Cleveland Browns, per @caplannfl.

Harbison arrived in Charlotte after consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in northern Illinois.
He continued to show his ability to rush, catch passes and block passes before declaring himself for the draft.
Charlotte’s coaches have added special teams to Harbison’s repertoire, which could help her make it into the Browns roster.
CB Kiondre Thomas, State of Kansas
Kiondre Thomas played two seasons at the cornerback for the Minnesota Gophers before moving to Kansas State as a graduate.
Thomas became a starter for K-State midway through the campaign, with 4 defended passes but no interceptions.

He brings a good size for a corner kick at 6 ′ and 187 pounds, with strong cover and run defense skills.
Thomas has only one career interception, but he held his opponents to the third lowest streak per course in 2019.
And he was an interception machine in high school, an indication that his interception total is not due to bad hands.
