The Cleveland Browns did not have a pick in this year’s 2023 NFL Draft until number 74 (Third Round, Pick 11). The team selected wide receiver Cedric Tillman out of Tennessee.
In 2022, Tillman had 37 catches for 417 yards and three touchdowns. Way better numbers in 2021 with 64 catches for 1,081 yards and 12 touchdowns.
This is his complete scouting report via Bleacher Report:
ARM: 32 3/4″
40-YARD DASH: 4.54
— Very good size. Thick, muscled-up frame.
— Very good stop/start explosiveness.
— Above-average speed. Not a true burner but enough to threaten vertically.
— Very good ball skills and ability to catch in traffic.
— Good YAC skills. Quality blend of size, burst and strength.
— Great blocker. Active, physical, and strong.
— Limited route tree at Tennessee. Aligned only on right side and ran few routes.
— Hard to get a gauge on how he feels out zone coverage and operates from the slot because of how Tennessee used him.
WELCOME TO CLEVELAND!
Let’s hope this is a great target for quarterback DeShaun Watson to throw the ball to for many years to come. We look forward to having you in #DawgPoundNation.
