#26 – Eric Ebron
Ebron is the top tight end prospect in this year’s draft but could fall based on concerns related to his focus and drops. He is a dynamic athlete that would pair amazingly with Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon. He or Cameron can lineup outside with Andrew Hawkins inside of them or both could line up on the line in close. Adding a receiver is a possibility but with a talent like Ebron falling the Browns take a shot. None of the top level QBs were still on the board at this point.
Adding a receiver, cornerback or quarterback are all options at this point. One thing Ray Farmer and Mike Pettine have made clear is that they will draft talent when it is there. Ebron is a huge talent and his availability, while unlikely on draft day, would make this choice tough for the Browns. His flexibility, and ability to develop slowly, would be perfect for the Browns offense. The seams would be under attack always and a big target in the redzone is something the team needs as well.
