The Cleveland Browns are quickly approaching a crucial draft for the franchise as they aim to rebound from their sixth consecutive losing season.

General Manager, Ray Farmer has been tasked with the job of finding NFL ready talent and with five picks in the first three rounds, there is a real chance to do that.

One player which Farmer is apparently very keen on taking with the fourth overall pick is wide receiver, Sammy Watkins from Clemson.

“It would be big, big, ginormous” Farmer told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “He’s a good football player. He has really good hands, can run all the routes and can be productive. Saddle him on the opposite side of Josh Gordon — wow!”

Josh Gordon was the lone bright spark for the Browns last season, with over 1,600 receiving yards despite a lack of elite quarterbacks. Lining Watkins up on the other side of this pro-bowler could certainly help the Browns offensively, but do they need to find a quarterback first?

The problem for the Browns is that there is no consensus number one quarterback talent in this year's draft as in seasons past. Cleveland will still need to find a passer, but it is possible that they will wait till later in the first round or possibly even the second day to find that man.

Watkins will certainly not be available then and Farmer would do well to snap him up early and then set about finding the man to give him the ball.
