NFL Draft 2011: Cleveland Browns Select UNC WR Greg Little

The Cleveland Browns selected former running back and current WR Greg Little with one of the ridiculous number of picks they leveraged from the Atlanta Falcons in their day one trade.

Little is a WR with great size (6-3, 220lbs) and decent speed, so this could be a good pick for the Browns. Nevertheless, Little is a very raw route runner, so he has a lot to learn. It might be difficult for Browns fans to be patient with the young WR, as they have had to endure the spurty development of a number of wideouts over the years. Whether it is Braylon Edwards, Brian Robiskie, or Mohamed Massaquoi, the Browns have invested quite a few quality picks in their WR corps recently, but they have seen very little return from those investments. I am sure Cleveland fans are hoping that Little breaks this trend.

The Pittsburgh Steelers brought Greg Little in for a pre draft visit, but it is unlikely that they were ever planning to select the former Tarheel this early.
