Jamie Meder the No. 1 ranked DL in the NFL this preseason





Mike Pettine Press Conference - August 31

August 31, 2015

On why the Browns defense fits DL Jamie Meder so well:

“Jamie is a guy that has played very well for us. He is not a flashy guy, but he is very good with his technique and with his hands. I am very pleased with where Jamie is. We are just going to see how it all plays out. As we all know, that is a room where we have tremendous depth. Jamie is a guy that – I think (defensive coordinator Jim) O’Neil said it the other day – if you had to vote for a most improved that he would certainly be in the discussion.”


5 Browns observations from Monday’s practice

Jamie Meder the No. 1 ranked DL in the NFL this preseason

On the last day of August, the Browns hit the field in Berea for a jog-through practice session. Because of the light tempo, many players were able to return from injuries.

Here’s what we saw.

1) DL Jamie Meder’s momentum growing

It may be the preseason, but Pro Football Focus ranks Meder as the No. 1 rated defensive lineman in the entire NFL. Working with mostly backups in the second halves of games, Meder has logged 49 snaps, producing seven tackles, a sack and has blown up a countless number of running lanes.

“I think (defensive coordinator Jim) O’Neil said it the other day that if you had to vote for a most improved, that Jamie would certainly be in the discussion,” coach Mike Pettine said.

We’ve written about Phil Taylor’s return to the field, Danny Shelton and Xavier Cooper’s superior play, Randy Starks’ needed veteran presence and undrafted rookie Dylan Wynn’s emergence. The shot clock is quickly approaching zero, and the Browns will have some big decisions on the horizon.

“We are just going to see how it all plays out,” Pettine said. “As we all know that is a room where we have tremendous depth.”

“I just want to do anything to help the team win,” Meder said Saturday.
