With The Twenty-Second Pick Of The 2012 BRB Mock Draft, The Cleveland Browns Select...

Congratulations, WreckNTexan. Your selection actually made my jaw drop. Don't get me wrong. This guy's a fine player, and I'm a fan. Unfortunately for you, not everyone is as open-minded and flexible as I am, so you may hear it in the Comments.

Then again, you may not. If a mock draft pick falls in the forest but no one comments on it, does it garner a reaction? Think about that, and then jump.

After solidifying the running game with Trent Richardson at 4, it is now time to add a Weapon on the outside with 22. The Browns have no viable threats on the offensive side outside of Josh Cribbs, and he is more of a return specialist then WR threat. Richardson will change that. He gives them a HR threat out of the backfield. Next, they will need to get that 8th defender out of the box.

The pick is Mohamed Sanu (WR--Rutgers).

Sanu would be a good fit in this offense. He would be able to compete for the WR1 job right out of the draft and give Colt McCoy a reliable target on the outside. McCoy wasn't known for having the strongest arm, so getting a WR that can make plays in traffic would be a plus. At Rutgers, Sanu lined up in the Wildcat, taking direct snaps more then once, and he proved he can be elusive in the open field. While he may not have elite break away speed, it won't be necessary, as McCoy wouldn't be able to air it that deep.

Even with Alshon Jeffery and Kendall Wright still available, I feel Sanu is a better fit with what the Browns utilize.
