As the Cleveland Browns wrap up their 2020 draft, they go wide receiver and select Donovan Peoples-Jones.
At first glance, the Cleveland Browns addressed every single possible hole through the 2020 draft. Starting on the defensive side of the ball and moving over to offense, they are in a great place to start the 2020 NFL season.
Donovan Peoples-Jones is a guy who was not supposed to fall as far as he did in this years draft. When he was still available at pick No. 187, it was a no brainer.
Peoples-Jones was a 5-star recruit, and had a solid college career. Peoples-Jones totaled 103 catches, 1,327 yards as well as 14 touchdowns in three seasons for Michigan. Peoples-Jones is super athletic, something the Browns will absolutely love to have as their wide receiver three.
With a prospect grade of 5.94, Peoples-Jones is once again a solid receiver in what was a loaded 2020 receiver draft class. Running a 4.48 40-yard dash mixed with a 139 inch broad jump, it is clear that Peoples-Jones has athleticism all over the board. Peoples-Jones also earned Third-Team All-Big Ten honors as a wolverine.
With the Browns already having Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry out wide, Peoples-Jones will have time to learn from some of the best in the league and will look to be a big contributor for the Browns moving forward.
With Peoples-Jones sitting as 6-foot-2, he has solid size for a wide receiver three, something the Browns have not had the luxury of having in a long time. At the beginning of the draft, Peoples-Jones was a third or fourth-round projection.
As he falls into the Browns lap nicely at No. 187, new Browns GM Andrew Berry has to be very excited. When No.187 came around, fans across the league wanted K.J Hill or Peoples-Jones. With the selection of Peoples-Jones, the Browns choose to go north of the rivalry, and are hopeful they have their wide receiver three of the future.
