The Cleveland Browns take Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins with the 4th pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Tell me that wouldn’t be music to the ears of Browns fans everywhere.
Watkins would bring a second dimension to the Browns semi lethal receiving core. Can you imagine what he could do for the Cleveland Browns?
Watkins and Gordon on the field at the same time would drive defenses in the NFL crazy. You can’t double cover everyone and having a receiving group like Gordon, Watkins and Jordan Cameron lining up would have defensive coordinators scratching their heads.
You could stop all these guys from making the plays. You saw last season what happens when you get the ball into the hands of Josh Gordon. What if you had 2 Gordon’s on the field at the same time?
This Cleveland Browns offense would be practically unstoppable. Watkins is a sure handed guy who has been a star player since his high school days.
He set records in high school by catching 133 passes, for 2,997 yards and 36 touchdowns during his career at South Fort Myers High School.
When he went to Clemson, he continued to be a stand out receiver. Watkins made a huge impact in his freshman season in 2011. He caught 82 passes for 1219 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first collegial season, including 10 catches, 155 yards and two TDs against defending national champions Auburn.
He led the nation in reception yards per game, all-purpose yards and touchdowns, He also broke 11 school freshman records seven games into the season, including total all-purpose yards previously held by C. J. Spiller.
Watkins is one of he best receivers coming into the 2014 NFL draft. He could make an immediate impact for the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland needs to learn from the mistakes the team has made since returning to the NFL in 1999.
The Browns passed on several wide receivers over the past few years. They cannot afford to walk away from the 2014 NFL draft without having Sammy Watkins as a member of the 2014 Cleveland Browns.
Lots of talk about Cleveland taking a quarterback in this years draft. The Browns don’t necessarily need to waste a high pick on a QB. We saw last season what can happen when you get the ball to a play-maker like Josh Gordon.
Add another play-maker like Sammy Watkins to the roster and your teams offense is going to be hard to stop. The Browns need Sammy Watkins to compliment Josh Gordon. Then the team will win football games.
