Browns snag WR Robiskie


Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns continue to surprise with their picks by taking Ohio State receiver Brian Robiskie in the second round (No. 36 overall).

Robiskie was a coveted receiver moving up the draft boards. But similar to their first-round pick, Cal center Alex Mack (No. 21), the Browns may have reached early in the second round.

The Browns certainly have a need for receiver following the release of veteran Joe Jurevicius and pending legal trouble with Donte Stallworth. Robiskie could help. He also spent part of his youth in Cleveland as a ball boy with the Browns as his father, Terry, was a former assistant.

"I would have to say it's like coming home," Terry Robiskie said over the phone.

"I feel so blessed to have the opportunity," Brian Robiskie added.

The Browns have two more picks in the second round.
