Another player who has dropped quite a bit is Iowa State wideout Hakeem Butler. At one point, he seemed to be an early second round prospect but that proved to be incorrect as he’s still on the board entering the final day.
Butler ended his career with the Cyclones on a high note, pulling in 1,318 yards through the air and had an unbelievable 22-yards per catch. He then proved those who doubted his speed wrong in the Combine, but created more questions as he struggled in the drills that followed his 40-yard dash.
For the Browns, there could still be some interest as he would give them a huge target on the outside with a wide catch radius. He wouldn’t have made sense for them early on, but during the last day he could be a target to add some much-needed size to the wideout position.
Lastly, we have Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, the Florida safety who seemed like he could have been a great fit with the team’s second pick. CGJ is an intriguing prospect capable of playing both free and strong safety, although he seemed to be much better closer to the line of scrimmage this past season than he was in 2017.
For the Browns, that’s perfectly fine. They currently have Damarious Randall playing the deep safety and there’s hope that the team will come to terms with him on a long-term deal. That would leave Gardner-Johnson battling with Morgan Burnett for the strong safety position.
He may not beat out the veteran this season, but he has the ability to be the long-term answer there. Not only that, but the value for him on Day 3 would be too much to pass on again.
