Cleveland Browns General Manager John Dorsey was on the sideline for Sunday’s Big XII championship between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns. It was the second consecutive week that Dorsey scouted the Sooners. He was in Morgantown last weekend for the game against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson is considered a fourth to sixth round pick by WalterFootball. Sooners wide receiver Marquise Brown has a first to second round grade. Offensive tackle Bobby Evans has a fourth to sixth round grade. Offensive guard Cody Ford has a first to second round grade. Offensive guard Ben Powers has a fourth to sixth round grade. Offensive guard Dru Samia is a late draft choice to a potential undrafted free agent.
Inside linebacker Caleb Kelly is considered a late round draft choice or a potential undrafted free agent.

Texas wide receiver Collin Johnson is considered the No. 6 wide receiver. He carries a second to third round grade. Wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey is rated the No. 18 wide receiver with a third to fifth round grade. Offensive tackle Calvin Anderson is rated the No. 13 offensive tackle. He has a third to fifth round grade.
Cleveland has a need at the wide receiver position. Jarvis Landry has been consistent when presented opportunities but there is no one that draws attention from him. Rashard Higgins, Antonio Callaway and Breshad Perriman have done some good things but there is no belief that any of them are a No. 1 wide receiver for this team. Some of the best prospects for both Texas and Oklahoma are wide receivers. Dorsey could use one or two of the team’s selections on the position. Cleveland selected Texas A&M wide receiver Damion Ratley and Callaway in the 2018 NFL Draft.
At the moment, the Browns hold each of their picks in the first six rounds plus an additional third round choice (defensive tackle Danny Shelton), two additional fifth round choices (running back Carlos Hyde and wide receiver Josh Gordon trades) and an additional seventh round choice (quarterback Cody Kessler trade).
Beyond the prospects on the field, Dorsey could be looking to stay in front of Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley as well. Cleveland is conducting a head coaching search and Riley is one of the names most readily mentioned. The presence of quarterback Baker Mayfield in Cleveland could be an intriguing possibility for Riley. The two had a fruitful partnership in Norman.
