NFL Mock Draft 2012: Cleveland Browns Help Colt McCoy (Or Ryan Tannehill) With Second Pick

Related: Even more mock drafts.

The Cleveland Browns' first pick of the first round is the one that's gotten all the 2012 NFL Mock Draft heat—the moment they failed to snare Robert Griffin III with it, Ryan Tannehill's ascent began—but their second pick, at No. 22 overall, will tell us a lot about what they'll look like in the future. We sent Trent Richardson their way with the first pick of our own mock draft; with No. 22 overall, we think they'll take wide receiver Kendall Wright.

He's been called a system product in the past—on this very website—but with Richardson taking the focus off Colt McCoy on offense they could go for a steady receiver who can improve on the receivers he was throwing to last year. Only Greg Little and Josh Cribbs caught more than 40 passes for the Browns last season, and nobody had more than four touchdowns. Between Richardson and Wright, Colt McCoy won't be able to get a reprieve from being Wally Pipped by a Tannehill type next year.

SB Nation St. Louis's 2012 NFL Mock Draft is moving from No. 1 to 32 as we rapidly approach the first round of the real NFL Draft. You can follow along at our draft storystream, or read more mock draft recaps in our mock draft analysis storystream.
