Cleveland Browns Pick No. 13 First scenario: Take a wide receiver
The Browns wide receivers’ room will likely be under construction this offseason regardless of if the team takes a wide receiver at the No. 13 pick. The team could be looking to pick up a couple of free agents.
There are plenty of free agents from Chris Godwin, of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Mike Wiliams of the Los Angeles Chargers available. But the most likely way the team builds this part of the team will be through the draft.
There are many good wide receivers from the college ranks that will likely be drafted in the first round. Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave, both of the Ohio State University will be available. Other first-round talents could be there as well including Landon Drake from USC and Treylon Burks of Arkansas.
The wide receiver class this season is deep, and the Browns could wait and not draft a receiver at No. 13. However, the popular opinion is that Cleveland takes the wide receiver.
The only two wide receivers that are more than likely to return to Cleveland next season are Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz. Current Cleveland wideout Rashard Higgins is likely to test the market again as he’s a free agent.
Their current No. 1 receiver, Jarvis Landry, is under contract but his high price tag of $15 million a season might force them to consider releasing him to save some money.
