Draft Thoughts After First 3 Rounds

So the Browns have worked on the offensive side of the ball in the first three rounds going with RB Trent Richardson #3, QB Brandon Weeden #22, OT Mitchell Schwartz #37. The one concern here is the lack of a WR. It was reported that if he was available the Browns would have taken Kendall Wright at #22 but the Titans took him at #20. So who is Weeden going to target this year with his highly touted accuracy? Josh Cribbs and Greg Little are the starters at this point. Evan Moore and Jordan Cameron could be used as a double tight end combo similar to what the Patriots did in 2011. But who might be available in the 4th round and beyond to add more talent to the wide out corp?

Searching the remaining players it looks like there are a few wide receivers that might be drafted by the Browns. Joe Adams, WR out of Arkansas, Chris Givens, WR out of Wake Forest and Orson Charles, TE out of Georgia are some of the highest ranked receivers left on the board. Another player of interest is Bobby Massie, OT out of Mississippi who could add needed strength to a week offensive line. With Schwartz already shored up at right tackle Massie could be moved to Guard or much needed depth to an offensive line that was decimated by injury last season.

At the end of the day if Heckert decides to go with more depth on defense as he did with John Hughes, DT out of Cincinnati with the 87th pick I would be ok with it. He is the expert getting paid millions to make these decisions and we still have 2013 to continue building the offense as it is my belief they will dedicate two years to the offense as they did with the defense. Lets face it, the defense they built isn’t all that bad. Lets just hope the moves the Browns have made so far in the 2012 NFL Draft put some points on the board.
