Throughout the offseason, Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon said that he expected and wanted the Browns to take a quarterback in the first round of the draft.
His wish was granted when the team landed Johnny Manziel, who has a “big fan” in Gordon, with the 22nd pick. Perhaps emboldened by that experience, Gordon returned to the suggestion box on Friday with his thoughts about what the Browns should do with the 35th overall pick.
“We have a lot of wide receivers right now on our team that we just picked up on, but I’m actually a fan of Marqise Lee,” Gorrdon said on ESPN Radio. “I don’t believe he got picked yet. That would be a great addition. I know we have an early second-round pick. We’ll see.”
Lee is expected to be one of the first players picked when the draft resumes on Friday night and his addition to Gordon and tight end Jordan Cameron would give Manziel or Brian Hoyer a strong receiving corps to make use of in 2014. If the Browns can find an appealing running back as well, they’d have pulled off a quick and intriguing overhaul of their offense in a short period of time.
