Round 2. Help The Rookie QB
The glaring need of play-makers was evident last season. Ray Farmer‘s tenure as general manager certainly did not do the team any favors when Cleveland needed to upgrade the wide receiver position.
If Ole Miss’ Laquon Treadwell is available, I do not see how the Cleveland Browns pass him up. That said, I do not believe he will drop into the second round, so Cleveland drafts Josh Doctson with the first pick in the second round.
After transferring to Texas Christian University from Wyoming, Doctson lit up the stat sheet. In his two seasons as a TCU Horned Frog, Doctson caught 179 passes for 2,784 yards and 29 touchdowns!
Doctson is 195 pounds, so once he gets onto an NFL roster, an immediate goal should be adding 10 pounds. At 6’3, Doctson would not only complement Wentz, but he immediately gives defenses a reason to be wary of someone other than Josh Gordon (in terms of wide receivers).
From day one he should be the second wide receiver starting for the Cleveland Browns. Not only does he have size, he is also fast. Doctson recorded a 4.50 40-yard dash and a 41-inch vertical jump at the NFL Combine.
The 41-inch vertical was the best at his position. It is safe to say that if the football is anywhere near Doctson, that he is going to come down with it.
