A lot of Cleveland Browns fans are worried about the teams receiving corp for the upcoming 2010 season.
Most think the Browns should get a veteran receiver to go with all the youth they have at the position.

I personally like what Cleveland has.

A young and talented group, competing for playing time.

No divas among the Browns wide outs.

Potential is one thing the Browns pass catchers have and experience from a year in the NFL should help both Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie in their second year.

Chansi Stuckey, who’s only 26, came on at the end of last year and showed some very good hands, Josh Cribbs is improving and is most dangerous after the catch, rookie Carlton Mitchel is very raw but has the potential to do great things, and undrafted rookie, Johnathan Haggerty, has also caught Mangini’s eye.

Cleveland has talent at the wide receiver position but it is still in the developmental stage and getting improved play from this year’s quarterback would be a plus as well.

Jake Delhomme should play a huge role in the young receivers improvement.

Last year the Browns had no chemistry in the passing game with inaccurate passes and way too many drops led to a major over haul at the quarterback position.

The Browns are banking on Delhomme’s experience and leadership to help in this area.

Right now the Browns don’t have a Webster Slaughter, Brian Brennan or Reggie Langhorne on the roster, but with a some more experience, they just might have better receivers in the future.
