With Josh Gordon yet to be reinstated, and it being unclear if he ever will be, the Cleveland Browns have little receiving corps to speak of.
The receivers they do have are mostly unproven, and the only veteran they have with any kind of real production is Brian Hartline, who will be 30 this year. Outside of him the rest of the depth chart are short with some decent speed.
Michael Thomas is a bigger and stronger receiver who relies on route running and strength instead of speed to burn his defenders.
With RGIII presumed to be the starter, behind a porous offensive line who is now missing two if its best members from 2015, the team will need to rely on tall and strong receivers instead of looking for the time to allow burners to get down field.
Eventually, the team needs to find a combination of receiving skills and speed, but for now just getting a receiver who can maneuver in the short and intermediate range will help.
