Browns Round 3, Pick 99 Isaiah Likely, TE, Coastal Carolina

Todd McShay gets to make the last pick for Cleveland and he has the Browns taking Coastal Carolina TE Isaiah Likely.

He wrote Cleveland “could use another pass catcher at the position,” after noting how Cleveland franchise-tagged David Njoku.

He doesn’t mention second tight end Harrison Bryant, who is a pretty good pass catcher in his own right. Heck, he won the Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end as a senior and has shown ability at the pro level of the course of the past two seasons.

I think the Browns might agree it’s a little too early about taking a tight end here, but I won’t complain if Likely is the pick. Get me playmakers!
