Who Cleveland selected at pick No. 26
By Mike Wells
ESPN’s NFL Nation held a mock draft Tuesday afternoon. The mock was only for the first round, so of course that means the Indianapolis Colts didn’t have a pick since they gave their first to Cleveland for running back Trent Richardson last season.
So for the fun of it, let’s take a look at who the Browns picked at No. 26.
ESPN.com Cleveland reporter Pat McManamon has the Browns selecting receiver Cody Latimer out of Indiana.
I wrote a post Tuesday where receiver is a secondary need behind safety for the Colts, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks will be free agents at the end of next season.
Latimer had 72 receptions for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns last season with the Hoosiers.
Safety is the primary need for the Colts.
The two best safeties in the draft – Alabama’s Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Louisville’s Calvin Pryor – were selected by Detroit and Chicago at No. 10 and 14, respectively.
The Colts need to find a replacement for Antoine Bethea, who signed last month with San Francisco.
