#4 Cleveland Browns: Sammy Watkins, WR Clem
Rory’s Take: With Lombardi out as Browns GM my entire thought on what they would do go out the window. I am not too familiar with Ray Farmer, but I would assume the approach of best player available is always helpful. The pairing of Gordon and Watkins could be insanely productive and would be an asset for a team that may lack a stud quarterback.
Chase’s Take: Watkins has his critics, but his performances for Clemson centered almost entirely on his talents on offense. Watkins did a lot of his work on screen passes and gaining impressive yardage after the catch, a tool that NFL offensive coordinators love to have in their back pocket. Also able to make defenses pay with his speed Watkins is comparable to Percy Harvin when he was coming out at Florida and should be more durable. Projecting him anywhere outside of the Top 5 right now is ridiculous.
