Browns or 49ers could select Jaylon Smith by third round of NFL Draft?

Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith (knee) is expected to be selected before the end of the third round, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

What It Means:

Smith has been completely removed from some teams' draft boards due to a torn ACL and LCL in his knee that is expected to force him to miss the entire 2016 season. Smith is also dealing with drop-foot, suggesting there's nerve damage. It's going to take a team with a talented, deep roster and one preferably with around double-digit selections to take a flier on him. The Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers each have a league-high 12 picks, but each has one of the NFL's worst rosters.

The 2015 Browns ranked 21st in the league in Adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points (NEP) and 32nd in Adjusted Defensive Rushing NEP. The 49ers ranked 25th and 26th, respectively, in these metrics.
