Cleveland has two solid starters in Odell Beckhmam, Jr. and Jarvis Landry and they even have their No. 3 guy in Rashard Higgins back after he signed a one-year deal on Wednesday. Even with those three, the Browns need to address the position simply due to their lack of deep speed wideouts.

This issue showed its head in the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs — where it was evident they missed OBJ’s game-changing speed. While he will be back, there’s also some concern since the injuries have become more frequent for him, which is why they get some insurance in Dyami Brown.

A product of North Carolina, Brown is a dynamic playmaker who measures in at 6-foot-1 and 180-pounds and went for more than 20-yards per catch in each of the past two seasons.

From North Carolina to North Carolina State, the Browns use their second pick in the third round on Alim McNeill. The Wolfpack defensive tackle is a large man at 6-foot-1 and 315-pounds but has more athleticism than it would seem.

He was a running back in high school and understands how to shut down the running lanes. He also offers up some pressure when it comes to rushing the passer.

As a rookie, McNeill will work behind Andrew Billings but has the talent to become a starter down the road.
