Cleveland Browns: 3 Potential third-day wide receiver gems
3. Tyre Brady, Marshall
Originally a three-star recruit of the Miami Hurricanes, Tyre Brady spent his freshman season as a redshirt before taking the field in 2015. He played sparingly that year and then found himself watching from the sidelines due to a suspension that lasted the final three weeks of the season.

The wideout subsequently transferred the following year and had to sit out 2016 due to NCAA rules. He then found himself much more involved in the offense for his new school — Marshall — in 2017 as he hauled in 62 receptions for 942 yards and eight touchdowns. As a senior, he added another 71 catches and 1,002 yards with nine touchdowns.
While Brady did have good numbers, they possibly could have been better with more consistent quarterback play. He’s a good route runner who is decisive after the catch and can gain good yards afterward due to that.
He is a bit thin, but his 6-foot-3 frame has room to add bulk which would help his overall effectiveness. He wouldn’t be a huge factor as a rookie, but could develop into a good option outside for the Browns — and should be available somewhere around Round 4 or 5.
Brady’s suspension at Miami was due to a violation of team rules, but that violation was never specified. It still will raise some flags and NFL general managers will surely do their due diligence in figuring out what happened there. It would be a surprise if there were any negative effects on his stock, however, as Brady was quiet during his time with Marshall.
