Browns: UDFA LB Mohamoud Diabate named player to watch
The 2023 NFL draft came to a close, and there is always a mad race to sign undrafted free agents afterward. For the Cleveland Browns, they shoveled out a ton of money to Utah linebacker Mohamoud Diabate to get him to training camp. And Draft Wire’s Jeff Risdon thinks he has a chance to make an impact:
“Diabate is a former EDGE who converted to inside linebacker, but he’s built more like a tall safety (he’s 6-3/229). Moves very well in space and can both blitz and cover, making Diabate an ideal sub-package player who offers a ton of potential on special teams units.”
With both Anthony Walker Jr. and Sione Takitaki suffering season-ending injuries, Diabate could end up making the initial 53-man roster until both players are healthy. With the sheer athleticism to compete, Diabate can at least contribute on special teams when suited up.
