With Alabama’s Trent Richardson and Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden being the latest additions to the Cleveland Browns, focus turns to the second round where the team will look to address additional needs.
Per ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Scouts Inc’s Todd McShay, the sites have officially been set on the wide receiver position as both analysts feel the Browns will select Georgia Tech’s Stephen Hill with the 37th selection. Hill, a player whom many would have been comfortable with had he been selected with the 22nd-overall selection, is one of the few wide receivers who have fallen a bit further than anticipated.
Hill only had 28 receptions last season, but was running in an offense that was focused priamarily on the quarterback option and wishbone formations. He is 6-feet-4-inches tall, has top end speed and excellent length. Per ESPN, he “flashes the ability to make the first defender miss and can rip off a chunk of yards when gets a seam.”
Other players who could be selected include offensive lineman Cordy Glenn, offensive lineman Bobby Massie and wide receiver Reuben Randle. The two linemen would be instant upgrades at right tackle while Randle’s transition to a West Coast Offense has seemingly drawn praise from the Browns front office.
