The Cleveland Browns could be targeting a receiver early in the 2017 NFL Draft, even after taking four receivers a year ago.
Once Myles Garrett is taken with the No. 1 overall pick, the Cleveland Browns have options at No. 12.
It may have seemed crazy a few months ago, but it is possible that the team could go after a top wide receiver. And if not at pick No. 12, it could happen with pick No. 33.
The Browns did select four wide receivers a year ago, but only Corey Coleman showed any promise in what was an average season at best. This is not to say the other three stand no chance of making the 2017 roster, but it never hurts to acquire more talent.
The Browns are in a rebuilding phase, which means the best talent must be acquired, regardless of position. It is why Garrett is the consensus number one pick, and why the team should just go off their draft board, regardless of position, at each pick.
This is not to say the team is for sure going to take a receiver early, but fans should not be surprised if it does indeed happen. It would increase the competition at the position and help increase the odds of improvement after the loss of Terrelle Pryor.
Let’s take a look at this and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
