There is a plethora of talent with the wide receiver prospects in this year’s NFL draft and the Cleveland Browns could draft one of them at pick No.44
If the Cleveland Browns stay where they’re at in the NFL Draft their first pick is at No. 44 in the middle of the second round. The wide receiver room was bolstered earlier this offseason when Amari Cooper was traded to the team from the Dallas Cowboys. The team definitely got an upgrade with Cooper, who can now be that No. 1 wide receiver for the team.
Cleveland also has Donovan Peoples-Jones entering his third season and Anthony Schwartz ready for his sophomore campaign. Both have contributed some to the team’s success, but both will need to step up even more for the team if the offense is going to go places.
While there is time to add more wide receivers in free agency over the next few weeks the Browns will likely pick a couple of new wide receivers through the draft. They have several draft picks in the middle rounds — but could take their first wide receiver at No. 44.
The wide receiver depth in this year’s draft class is very deep. However, there is some variance in where some of these players land in the draft.
There are probably four or five wide receivers that could land anywhere between No. 30 and No. 75 depending on what media source you might look at. While the first four or five wide receivers including Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams, Treylon Burks, and Drake London are likely to be drafted in the first round, the rest of the prospects could be drafted at a variety of places.
Let’s take a look at four wide receivers that the Browns could take at No. 44. A couple of these players could be drafted before the 44th pick while the other two might be more of risk, taking so soon in the draft, but have a great deal of potential, and if Cleveland were to wait until their next pick at No. 78 that player might not be there.
