Running backs and receivers shouldn't be called "skill position" players, because every football player has skill, right?
So it's time to meet the Cleveland Browns' rookie "ball handlers" that they picked in last weekend's draft.
Duke Johnson (Round 3) is the jewel of the group, as he knocked several legendary Miami (Fla.) running backs out of the Hurricanes' record books.
With 3,519 yard rushing in his college career, Johnson surpassed Miami stars Edgerrin James, Frank Gore, Alonzo Highsmith, Willis McGahee and Clinton Portis.
In Round 4, the Browns picked Washington State wide receiver Vince Mayle. The 6-foot-2 wideout caught 106 passes last year for 1,483 yards and nine touchdowns.
The Browns picked a pair of tight ends in Round 6, just four picks apart. Malcolm Johnson caught 10 touchdown passes at Mississippi State, which Randall Telfer hauled in 65 overall passes in his career at USC.
These draft picks flew under the radar compared to the Browns' picks in the first two rounds (Danny Shelton, Cameron Erving and Nate Orchard), but hopefully they will provide some extra firepower to an offense that certainly needs it.Read more... Join the Conversation...
