BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- With the first of two seventh-round picks, the Cleveland Browns selected defensive end Armonty Bryant from East Central Oklahoma in the NFL draft.

The Browns used the 217th overall pick on the 6-foot-3, 263-pound Bryant, who didn't perform the bench press at the scouting combine following right shoulder surgery.

Bryant, the Division II school's career leader with 26.5 sacks, was arrested in October on a felony charge of marijuana distribution in a school zone. He said an officer spotted him selling marijuana to a friend in the back lot of the school dorms.

Earlier Saturday, the Browns dealt their fourth- and fifth-round picks for selection in the 2014 draft.
