Round 7, Pick 217: Jeremiah Holloman, WR, Florida International
In classic John Dorsey fashion, the Browns use their seventh-round pick on a highly talented wide receiver with some off-the-field issues. Adding Jeremiah Holloman to the list of the likes of Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill, and Antonio Callaway who Dorsey has drafted regardless of off-the-field issues, the talent of a big-bodied receiver is there.
Holloman was kicked off of the University of Georgia’s team this offseason for an assault charge on a woman, where she stated that the talented receiver choked her. He has since transferred to Florida International and redshirted, but he is technically draft eligible as a redshirt sophomore.
Through his freshman and sophomore seasons, Holloman was still able to produce despite playing behind the likes of Calvin Ridley, Mecole Hardman, and Riley Ridley at the University of Georgia. Last year Holloman recorded 24 catches for 418 yards and five touchdowns despite being pushed down on the depth chart by a handful of receivers now playing in the NFL.
He could very well return to school and play in 2020 as a redshirt junior, though, but in this mock draft, Dorsey once again overlooks off the field issues and gives a highly talented receiver a chance to succeed. While this writer would not have drafted Hill, Hunt (or signed Hunt), Callaway, nor would he draft Holloman, it is apparent that Dorsey has a different mentality.
