Cleveland Browns Pick No. 13 Prospect No. 1 – Garrett Wilson, Wide Receiver, Ohio State
I wouldn’t be mad if the Cleveland Browns took either guy before this on the list, but I’m still most excited about the potential of landing Garrett Wilson from Ohio State.
Not only is Wilson the perfect fit for the Browns offense, but his 4.38 40-yard dash also solidified he is more than just a possession receiver. His 36-inch vertical was slightly lower than expected, but there is plenty of film out there showing that the guy can go get a football when he needs to.
The only reason the Browns wouldn’t take a receiver at pick No. 13 is because of the depth of the class. There are eight or nine guys who will go in the first two rounds of the draft, and all of them have the potential of being great NFL receivers.
It will be tempting for Berry to draft another need like defensive line in round one and push the needs of a receiver to round two where he can still get an extremely productive player.
Wilson is not only an elite route runner; he has the ability to stretch a defense as well. What I like most about him is how strong his hands are. He doesn’t let the ball get to his pads, which makes drops less likely to happen.
With Chris Olave and others showing up big at the combine, the Browns should have a shot at Garrett, as he likely won’t be the first receiver off the board.
