Wide receiver is once again a glaring need for the Browns heading into this year’s draft. Leave it to the receiver-needy Browns to pass on many talented wide receivers in what was one of the most talented receiver classes in the 2014 NFL Draft. Granted, last year there were some very talented receivers as well, but the Browns only selected Vince Mayle, who didn’t even make it into the regular season.
As a junior, Josh Doctson recorded 65 receptions for 1,018 yards, and 11 touchdowns. Doctson’s stat line increased even more last year, as he recorded a school record 79 catches for 1,337 yards and 14 touchdowns while participating in just 11 games after suffering a wrist injury.
Doctson is arguably the best wide receiver in this year’s draft even with the wrist injury he suffered in 2015. With wide Josh Gordon not guaranteed to be reinstated from his league suspension, and even if he is can the Browns trust him? – drafting Doctson at No. 32 would add a playmaker on offense and solidify this year’s need at such an important position.
