In my mock draft, I had Tar Heels' WR Greg Little as the Browns pick at the beginning of the third round.
Having traded away their third round pick and picked up a late second-round pick, it makes a lot of sense that they grabbed Little with the 27th pick of Round 2.
I really like this pick—the Browns get a new No. 1 receiver in Little, and they didn't have to burn a first round pick to do it.
Many think Little actually had first-round talent, but fell due to character concerns. While that's a little disturbing when you consider that all three players picked by the Browns so far have a character flag attached to them, Little is probably the least worrisome of the three.
No assault charges here, just issues with improper agent contact. Not good, certainly, but also not a reason not to draft someone.
The biggest strength for Little, in my opinion, is his excellent ability to gain yardage after a catch. This is something the Browns have struggled mightily with in using their current receiving corps, so Little is a huge boost in that area alone. He has excellent speed for his size and gets separation quickly.
On the downside, Little was suspended in 2010 for the agent contact issues, making his talent harder to evaluate given the missing year. He also doesn't have a lot of experience running sideline routes, which could be a problem in the Browns' new West Coast Offense.
Some have questioned his route-running ability because he spent two seasons at North Carolina as a running back, but there's an upside to that too: you have to assume this makes him a good blocker, as wide receivers go.
