Browns made a huge mistake not drafting a wide receiver last year

sammyThe Cleveland Browns knew that Josh Gordon was going to be suspended to start the year, and that the kid is a knucklehead, but now the news is out that Gordon will face a year ban from the NFL after failing another drug test.  Do you think the Browns are kicking themselves now for not drafting a wide receiver in last years draft?

The Browns drafted Johnny Manziel and Justin Gilbert in the first round and both have been considered bad picks at this point. With how many great wide outs came out of last years draft it is interesting that the Browns trusted in Travis Benjamin and Miles Austin as much as they did.

The Browns could have had Sammy Watkins with the fourth pick or Odell Beckham after trading down with Buffalo to No. 9.

Now, Gordon has once again let the Browns down, and it becomes very hard for the Browns to trust him again.  If he’s reinstated in a year, the Browns would be wise to trade him.  This time around, they surely won’t get anything close to what they could have gotten in 2013, when they would not entertain offers.
