NFL Draft Rumors: Cleveland Browns expected to draft Sammy Watkins


The NFL Draft is just around the corner and while it’s still impossible to predict just what will happen and where prospects will be picked, we’re starting to get a good idea of what might happen when the chips start to fall. One of those chips is Clemons wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who is viewed was the best offensive skill weapon in the draft.

Watkins being a top prospect and the Cleveland Browns having a top pick may end up being something that goes together as ESPN’s Tony Grossi believes that the Browns will pass on a quarterback with their No. 4 overall pick and take Watkins to add to their arsenal.

It’s interesting that Grossi has the Browns passing on a quarterback twice in the first-round, but it makes a ton of sense that Watkins is their pick.

Cleveland needs to get better right now but they need to do so in a way that preserves their future. Taking Watkins at No. 4 seems to be the way to go, but only time will tell what happens.

    Hope your right ! At # 4 the player should be NFL ready. I dont think any of the QBs are in this draft. Watkins would be a great start. Go Browns.
