Wide receiver Greg Little wasn't the first Brown picked in the 2011 NFL draft (in fact he was the third), but he'll be the Browns rookie facing the biggest scrutiny and saddled with the highest expectations of his class.
Receiver was a much-maligned position for the Browns last season where those expected to perform fell far, far short of the mark. Without the possibility of free agency (at least so far) to look for an upgrade, there's a lot riding on second-round pick Greg Little.
There have been some questions surrounding Little that range from character concerns, to whether he can truly perform as a receiver after spending his first two seasons with North Carolina as a running back.
But mostly what the majority of us see in Greg Little is big potential. The sort of potential that will allow him to eclipse second-round (thus far) disappointments Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie.
It's difficult to project stats for rookie receivers—especially those joining a team with a new coach and a new offensive system and who don't have all that long a track record in college either—but it's worth at least taking a shot at it.
Following are my projections for Greg Little's stats during his rookie season. As always, your comments and opinions on the matter are welcome in the comments below.
