The Cleveland Browns coaching staff and GM are set to visit Sammy Watkins today and then they will spend some time with The Ohio State Buckeye RB Carlos Hyde on Friday.
Watkins is one of the best receivers in this years draft. He could help Cleveland have the 1-2 punch that would make the Browns offense almost unstoppable, lining him up along with Josh Gordon.
Then there is the fan favorite Carlos Hyde. He thinks he is the best RB in the draft, and he very well could be. Hyde says he likes to let his football do his talking, but wasn't afraid to tell everyone he is the best.
Just take a look at the film Hyde said, from the NFL combine. The film doesn't lie and you will see Hyde running over everyone. But the big question now becomes if he can do that in the NFL.
The Browns brought another RB in who ended up being a bust in the NFL. They have to be careful not to make the same mistake again. The Browns have to be sure Hyde can come to the Browns and make a difference in the running game.
The Browns running game was a none factor last season. They need to establish a run this year that can keep a defense honest. This will open up the field and help who ever the QB is making down field plays.
If the Browns take Hyde and Watkins, the city of Cleveland and Browns fans everywhere will be ecstatic.
