After trading down from No. 2 and then — on Thursday in a deal with the Titans — from No. 8 to No. 15, the Browns snatched up Baylor’s Corey Coleman, the first receiver off the board.

Hailing from the same school as quarterback Robert Griffin III, Coleman addresses one of Cleveland’s most desperate needs.

Joining a thin group that includes Andrew Hawkins Jerseys, Taylor Gabriel Jerseys, Brian Hartline Jerseys and project Terrelle Pryor, Coleman has an opportunity to start right away.

“He’s very thick and strong and short,” a scout told Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Explosive run after the catch guy. He’s like Anquan Boldin Jerseys.”

NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein also compared the 5-foot-11, 194-pound Coleman to Arizona’s John Brown Jerseys, with one AFC assistant coach telling “(Coleman’s) my top receiver. Now this is for what we do, so he’s going to be tops for me. He can do a lot of things and I’m not worried about those simple routes because he’s got some gifts to work with. Like him a lot more than (Laquon) Treadwell or the Notre Dame guy (Will Fuller).”

Coleman ran a limited selection of routes at Baylor, but lands with one of the NFL’s top offensive minds in Browns coach Hue Jackson. The pick itself suggests that Jackson will get the football jerseys cheap players he desires under the team’s newly fashioned front office led by VP of football operations Sashi Brown.

With a horde of picks left in this draft, Coleman won’t be the last player chosen to help Jackson turn this roster around.

Ozzie Newsome: Ravens’ recent drafts not up to par

Since moving to Baltimore in 1996, the Ravens’ guiding draft philosophy has been “stay true to the board.”

That philosophy has served Ozzie Newsome well, starting with his debut draft in which he bypassed trouble-prone running back Lawrence Phillips — over then-owner Art Modell’s objections — to select future Hall of Famers Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis with his two first-round picks.

Two decades later, Newsome enjoys a rare level of job security as perhaps the NFL’s most respected general manager. Lately, however, Newsome acknowledges the Ravens’ drafts have slipped from the halcyon days when he and assistant general manager Eric DeCosta were plucking Pro Bowlers and All-Pros in the early rounds.

“I would say it’s not up to my standards,” Newsome said, via the team’s official website, on Tuesday, “and not up to Eric’s standards and not up to the Ravens’ standards when you compare it to what we did very early on.”

Although the Ravens picked up Pro Bowl linebacker C.J. Mosely and promising defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan Jerseys with the first two picks in the 2014 draft, his early picks in 2013 (safety Matt Elam Jerseys, linebacker Arthur Brown Jerseys) and 2015 (wide receiver Breshad Perriman, tight end Maxx Williams) have yet to yield impact production.

That said, the roster has been strong enough to win the Super Bowl in 2013 and earn postseason appearances in six of the past eight seasons.

While Newsome concedes recent draft classes “didn’t measure up” to the star-studded bumper crops from 1996 to 2004, DeCosta is “proud” of the starters and role players that have contributed to Baltimore’s success over the past decade.

“You should research this,” DeCosta explained. nfl jerseys wholesale “No team has had more money spent on their players over the last seven years than us. To me, that’s an indication that other teams value our players.”

DeCosta raises a salient point. The Ravens lose quality players to free agency in large part because the other 31 teams respect their ability to identify and develop young talent.

As long as Newsome and DeCosta are running the show, the Ravens will remain one of the NFL’s most stable franchises.
