Many mock drafts had the Browns selecting wider receiver Julio Jones with the sixth overall choice in the draft. Instead, the Browns traded out of the pick with Atlanta. In the second round, they picked wide receiver Greg Little, who missed the 2010 season at North Carolina along with several teammates after accepting gifts from agents. Tar Heels receivers coach Charlie Williams believes the Browns will be fine with Little.
“By not playing last year, it’s going to take some time for him to develop on that level,” Williams acknowledged. “He’s going to have to learn on the run in terms of the speed of the game and game contact. He’ll have his bumps and bruises and struggles his first year, but he should be able to play right away. He’ll correct whatever he needs to, and once he learns, he’s going to be good.” Williams added, “If Greg had played his senior year, he would’ve had big numbers. I don’t know where he would’ve stacked up with those two guys (Jones and A.J. Green), but I truly believe if Greg had played his senior year, he would’ve had a chance to be a first-rounder.”
