Just two weeks into his pro career, Demetric Felton has put the NFL on notice.

The former UCLA football running back was scooped up by the Cleveland Browns in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft back in April. Since then, Felton has moved back to wide receiver after moving from wideout to running back as an upperclassman in Westwood.

Felton's versatility means he can still play both positions, and he put that on display Sunday in Cleveland.

With the Browns and Houston Texans tied midway though the third quarter, Felton lined up in the slot. Felton took a few steps back when the ball was snapped, and quarterback Baker Mayfield hit him on a short screen to his left.

From there, Felton made a cut upfield, put a nasty spin move on a defender then turned on the jets to get to the end zone.

The 34-yard touchdown was the first of Felton's young career.

Here are a couple looks at the landmark moment for the Bruin:

That wasn't the only notable play from Felton on Sunday either.

Felton returned two kickoffs for 41 yards and three punts for 22 yards, recovered a fumble and caught another pass before making another man miss badly.

The Browns went on to beat the Texans 31-21 for their first victory of the 2021 season.

Felton racked up 2,059 yards and 15 touchdowns from scrimmage in his career at UCLA.
