The first Auburn player is off the board.
With the 76th overall pick, the Cleveland Browns took Auburn tackle Shon Coleman, adding yet another chapter to his storybook career.
After being diagnosed with Leukemia in 2010, Coleman sat out two years of football to beat the disease. He worked his way back, eventually backing up current Los Angeles Ram Greg Robinson on the 2013 Auburn team that made it to the BCS National Championship.
After Robinson departed for the NFL, Coleman slid into his spot at left tackle, and provided consistent protection for Nick Marshall in 2014, and Jeremy Johnson and Sean White in 2015.
