Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: DE David Veikune recorded 16 sacks over his last two years at Hawaii. He had five position coaches in three different programs and will benefit from some consistent coaching. He might be a year away from contributing regularly, but the Browns are rebuilding and can be patient. A closer look at the Browns' picks: Round 2/52 -- David Veikune, LB, 6-3, 257, Hawaii...The Browns are counting on Veikune to put some punch in their pass rush. He played end at Hawaii, but he will be an outside linebacker with the Browns and compete with second-year player Alex Hall for a starting job. He had 16 sacks over the last two seasons. - by The Sports Xchange
