Cleveland Browns player No. 1 to fall to them in the draft: Devonte Wyatt, DL, Georgia
Another Georgia Bulldog shows up on the list in Devonte Wyatt.
Wyatt is likely the best defensive lineman out there in this year’s collegiate class and could easily get picked in the top 20 of this draft, however, there have been reports from various media sources that are circulating this week that have shared information about criminal activity tied to his past.
While some of these reports might be true to a degree, some reporting might be stretched, but nonetheless, some teams are being reported as losing interest in the promising NFL star.
Wyatt seems like a player on draft day that could be waiting and waiting even though he’s at the top of the class. The big defensive lineman stands at 6-3 and weighs 315 pounds. He finished his final season with the Bulldogs by recording 39 tackles, with seven of those for losses. He also registered 2.5 sacks, forced two fumbles, and recovered one of them.
He’s a menace to most quarterbacks and can get into the backfield consistently. The Browns need help on the defensive line and if Wyatt happens to slip to them, they would alsmost have to take him.
Stories of Wyatt’s past growing up suggest he has gone through much adversity to get to this point in his career but had support from various coaches and teachers along the way. The latest reports of him being part of a family incident back in 2020 have supposedly made some teams consider dropping him from their draft boards.
Contrary to those reports, a story written by Jeff Sentell of Dawg Nation shares a very compelling and different story on Wyatt’s past and future and it’s very bright.
I’d love for Wyatt to be there for Cleveland and if he were there, I’d love even more for him to have his name called as the next Cleveland Brown since he’s a player who can cause a lot of havoc on the line.
