"35. Cleveland: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State"
Add another receiver? Benjamin is a huge receiving threat that has a lot of boom or bust potential based on his route running and hands. For the Browns this would be a big risk to double up on receivers but could allow for the creative Kyle Shanahan to run out a variety of packages. One thing is for sure that with Gordon, Evans, Benjamin and Cameron the Browns should win most jump ball, Hail Mary and red zone throws. That leaves, for this draft, the 3rd and 4th rounds for the Browns to improve somewhere else besides at WR.
"*69. New York Jets (from TB): Tre Mason, RB, Auburn 70. Jacksonville: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State 71. Cleveland: Bishop Sankey, RB, Washington. Yes, I consciously slotted three running backs in a row. It’s not an accident, it’s a forecast of a positional run."
Figured I would show the picks before hand for those Buckeye faithful. They have the Browns continuing to build their offense with youth but no linemen help. It is doubtful that the team will ignore both their defense and the offensive line with their first 4 picks. Teams are built from the inside out and spending this many assets on skill position players, while exciting for fans, doesn’t build a team correctly. The Browns have a solid front 7 on defense but have seeming holes on the offensive line, at inside linebacker and in the secondary. A third round running back may be a luxury for sure. Any hope for a tight end later in the 3rd or in 4th to round it out?
