BEREA, OHIO (AP) - After making two trades, the Cleveland Browns selected Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor with the No. 21 pick in the NFL Draft on Thursday night, a run stopper for their new 4-3 defensive alignment.

The Browns first swapped the No. 6 overall pick with Atlanta, acquired four others from the Falcons, including the No. 27 pick and then swapped that pick and a third-rounder (No. 70) with the Kansas City Chiefs to get Taylor, a 6-foot-3, 330-pounder.

Cleveland’s defensive front is changing next season under new coach Pat Shurmur.
