BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- The Cleveland Browns selected Texas linebacker Emmanuel Acho in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-1, 238-pound Acho led the Longhorns with 131 tackles -- 14.5 for losses -- last season. He was the second linebacker taken by the Browns, who nabbed Nevada's James-Michael Johnson earlier in the day.

A weakside linebacker in college, Acho was taken with one of the four compensatory picks awarded to the Browns for losing free agents.

Acho's brother, Sam, plays for the Arizona Cardinals.
