With the 36th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft...

The Cleveland Browns select...

...Brian Robiskie


A little background on Robo:

Robiskie appeared in nine games during his true freshman season in 2005 making his biggest impact on special teams. He started five of the 13 games he appeared in during the 2006 season finishing with 29 catches, 383 receiving yards and five touchdown-catches. Robiskie started all 13 games of the 2007 season finishing with 55 catches, 935 receiving yards and 11 receiving touchdowns. He also returned seven punts for a total of 60 yards. Robiskie appeared in all 13 games (12 starts) in 2008 catching 42 passes for a total of 535 yards and eight touchdowns. He also returns four punts for a total of 17 yards.


Simplified scouting report:

  • 6'3", 209lbs.
  • Polished
  • Great hands
  • May have trouble separating in the NFL because of lack of quickness/speed
  • Plays like the son of a WR coach, which he is

Another quiet pick from the Browns.  I like Robo, but again would rather have had him a little later in the draft.  He definitely fits the "football player" mold that Mangini wants.  If he plays the Joe J. role and our offense returns to form, this pick looks a whole lot better.  At the moment, I have to question why Rey Maualuga is still on the board AND why we haven't chosen a linebacker yet.  More as the story unfolds...
