Cleveland Browns

Stacked Against the Pick:

The Cleveland Browns only have 5 receivers on their roster so adding another in Wilson would not be a bad idea for them. The receiving core is a young team which would not be the most ideal for Wilson as he would need some sort of veteran help when getting shown the ropes of the league.

The Browns would have to look past the issues that Wilson had on the field last season when he quit the Washington State team due to issues with Head Coach Mike Leach. Although he can produce on the field, which was shown in 2011 when he was able to bring in 1388 yards on 82 receptions for the Cougars, it would have to be a gamble the Browns or any team would have to take. More than likely would lead to a positive story for both Wilson and the Browns.

The Perfect Storm:

Wilson is a tall player, standing at 6’4 he would be the tallest receiver on the team which would be a huge addition to an already struggling Browns team. The browns went 5-11 last season and last in the AFC North and could use all the help they can. Wilson is a player that will be there late in the draft and could be a huge pickup for the Browns as a player that they can pick up after they get the main players that they need.

Likelihood of Getting Drafted by Browns:

B+, With Wilson being as tall and athletic as he is he would be a good fit for a struggling Browns team
