The Browns own the No. 2 pick in the draft and are expected to take a quarterback, so this meeting could just be them doing due diligence on prospects. However, consider the following.
After losing Travis Benjamin in free agency, Cleveland is painfully thin at wide receiver. Given how Treadwell ran an underwhelming 4.65 40-yard-dash at his pro day earlier this week, perhaps the Browns are exploring two possibilities. The first is the incredibly remote chance that GM Sashi Brown uses the No. 2 pick to trade down and select Treadwell, especially with former star wideout Josh Gordon’s reinstatement not guaranteed.
The other is a bit more interesting, as the Browns could perhaps be looking to use later picks to trade back into the first round following the No. 2 pick. Just imagine. If Cleveland gets Josh Gordon back and also finds a way to bag Treadwell, not to mention picks a quarterback at No. 2, they could easily take a step forward in 2016.
