5 wide receivers who grabbed Cleveland Browns attention at 2023 combine
2. Marvin Mims, Oklahoma
With Deshaun Watson taking over from the start this coming season, the Browns need to make sure to surround him with as many weapons as possible. Right now, they have a lot of dynamic options with Cooper, DPJ, and tight end David Njoku. However, they can use another burner capable of beating the single coverage he's going to get thanks to the aforementioned pass-catchers.
Enter Marvin Mims from Oklahoma who was a big play waiting to happen throughout his collegiate career. He had 123 receptions for 2,398 yards and 20 touchdowns. What stood out most was his 19.5 average per reception for the Sooners.
On Saturday, Mims showed off his athleticism. He ran a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash and had a 39.5-inch vertical jump. He also proved that he can catch the ball with ease and turn up the field as he was beyond smooth in his gauntlet drill.
He's not the biggest receiver at 5-foot-11 and 183 pounds but with Cooper and Peoples-Jones both being over 6-foot tall, that's not as much of a concern as it once was. Instead of worrying about big wideouts, the Browns can now focus on finding someone who can round out their offense. That's exactly what they would get in Mims.
