The Browns are getting a big, athletic receiver in return for Odelrick Beckham Jr., the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft.
They’ll need a few more players to complete the package, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be optimistic about the impact that the move will have on the Browns offense and on the rest of the NFL.
— Marc Sessler, ESPN Stats & Info NFL Nation’s NFL columnistThe Browns will receive: Odell Beckham, RB, LSUThe Browns traded down from No. 12 to pick up Odell as a third-round pick.
This move gives the Browns another option for a big play wide receiver.
Beckham is the most talented player on this list, but he’s only a true running back.
He’ll be able to provide a lot of help to the Browns passing game and give the offense a spark in the passing game.
The Browns need help in the receiving department, but they could be getting one of the most dangerous players in the draft.
Odell has the potential to be a star in the NFL if he stays healthy and develops.
Becky has a lot to offer the Browns as a receiver, but it won’t be a slam dunk.
He’s just one of a handful of receivers on this year.
If the Browns trade down, they’ll likely go with a receiver like Brandin Cooks, or even a quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater.
Beckman will be a great fit for the Browns and their offense, and it will help to bring back an elite wide receiver to the NFL after spending two years in college.
