The Browns have selected defensive lineman Melila Purcell in the sixth round (200th overall) at the 2007 NFL Draft.

Purcell was a three-year starter along the Hawaii defensive line, marking 208 tackles with 36.5 tackles for loss and 20 sacks during his career. At 6-feet-5 and 269 pounds, he'll likely compete for a job along the team's defensive line.

Purcell was born and attended school in American Samoa and is cousins with 2007 second-round pick center Samson Satele of Hawaii.
