5. K.J. Hill, Ohio State
Just by the look of things, it seems as though Browns fans across the country have mixed emotions when it comes to whether or not the Browns should take a wide receiver in this year’s draft. Should they? The answer is yes.
Outside of star wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry, the Browns do not have much help. They have yet to resign Rashard Higgins, one of Mayfield’s top targets in his stellar 2018 rookie season.
There are many options in this year’s draft when it comes to wide receiver, as this year is a loaded draft class for that position. How could Ohio State’s K.J. Hill help the Browns?
The answer is simple — he’s consistent. Over the past several years, consistency has been an issue for the Browns and the two have not gone well together.
No matter where you look, Hill is labeled as being a consistent and productive option. He runs solid and fluent routes, and he has reliable hands, having too many drops.
Hill could be a late-round flyer that the Browns consider taking in this year’s draft. Without a doubt, they need to address more significant holes than the receiver position at the start of the draft, because receiver is at the bottom of the list.
With that being said, if one of the two big dogs were to get hurt or unable to play for some reason, they need depth. Reliable and consistent depth.
