While perusing the results of the Browns day three draft, I found myself Googling each selection (since ESPN offers some pretty weak analysis). I looked up safety Larry Asante on CBS Sportsline and learned he is a converted linebacker who started his career at a junior college before landing in Nebraska (the Browns certainly do seem to value run-support ability in their safeties). Then I looked up wide receiver Carlton Mitchell out of South Florida, and the number two result was something called carltonmitchell.net.
I was blown away. How awesome is it that our 6th round pick has his own website? And that the main page of that site is a chart explaining how by the year 2021 he will be the second best receiver in the NFL (and will be the best from 2015 to 2018).
Now I know Mike Holmgren and Tom Heckert and Eric Mangini probably scouted Mitchell and did all the work necessary to make sure he was a good fit for the team, but I like to hope that they went to his website, looked at that chart, and decided they had to take the league's number one receiver (circa 2015).
Welcome to Cleveland, Carlton. You are my new favorite rookie.
