During the lockout, we wondered if the Browns would add a veteran receiver to their mix of young players.
When that didn’t happen, we wondered who would step up out of their young players to emerge in a big role. The early signs: tight end Evan Moore and rookie wideout Greg Little.
Vic Carucci, who has been a great read since joining ClevelandBrowns.com, said this week he envisioned Moore leading the team in receiving. He thought Little had the best chance to lead all the wideouts in catches.
Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer got the same idea, saying Little has the best chance to emerge as a No. 1 receiver on the roster. He’s looked impressive in the preseason, although he has to cut down on drops.
We’ve heard a lot of good things about Moore this year. He’s a fourth-year undrafted player. Between him and Ben Watson, the Browns may throw the ball to their tight ends as much as any team.
