Cleveland Browns have interest in South Florida's Carlton Mitchell

cmitchell.jpgAPCarlton MitchellSince the departure of Braylon Edwards, the Cleveland Browns have been in a need for a deep-threat wide receiver. They may get what they need in South Florida wide receiver Carlton Mitchell, writes Carlos Holmes of The Dayton Daily News.

Holmes also writes that General Manager Tom Heckert Jr. has a knack for drafting talented and speedy receivers. He was largely responsible for drafting DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin while with Philadelphia. That being said, Heckert could have his eye on yet another speedster.

The Browns could use their 38th overall pick to select Mitchell, who is considered the No. 5 receiver in the draft.

    The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Mitchell is attractive to teams due to his rare combination of size, speed and upside. He was clocked as low as 4.40 in the 40-yard dash at the school’s workout last week. The underclassman has outstanding athletic ability and can stretch the field.

    “The pro day went very well,†Mitchell said in a recent phone interview. “I was really happy with some of the things I did. I’m very hard on myself so there are some things I felt I could have done better. Overall, I think teams were pleased with my performance.â€

    Browns representatives were in attendance for the workout and came away impressed with the receiver.

Well that would suck to be in BROWNTOWN. It would make two Bulls to end up in that dump(AH).

I could see the bucs taking him in second or maybe even Jville they need a wr.

The team stinks and always will stink, but on the upside they do have a great fan base. Plus making 2nd round money will deff help.

I'd love to see the Bucs draft Nate Allen with the early 2nd round pick and Carlton with the late 2nd round pick or early 3rd pick.

Not sure if the Bucs are a much better franchise than the browns right now, thou.

Yeah, career killer what Bull would want to get drafted by the Browns . . .

2nd Pick, 4th Round, 97th Overall: Anthony Henry, CB South Florida

The best pick of this draft, hands down.  Anthony Henry had an awesome rookie season and should have gotten Defensive Rookie of the Year (Kendrell Bell of Pittsburgh got it).  He played nickel back (Behind McCutcheon and Corey Fuller) and led the NFL with 10 INT's.  He added in a 97 yard INT return for a TD as his signature moment. 

From there it was less than awesome.  He struggled in man coverage and ways always a pump fake away from being beaten deep or committing defensive PI.  He was at his best when he could ball hawk as a nickel back.  When he was asked to match up against 1's and 2's, it was a mismatch.

Anthony Henry left the Browns as a FA in 2005.  Prior to last season he was traded to Detroit for back-up QB Jon Kitna. 

Career Stats (Only as a Brown, since he is still in the NFL):

203 tackles, 17 interceptions, 3 FF, 1 defensive TD

Players we could have drafted: Rudi Johnson, Edgerton Hartwell, and Roberto Garza.  Looking back on it, Henry was a great pick in the fourth round.

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
