Johnson this WR corps was considered one of the best and youngest in the NFL. Now Johnson is gone and the majority of passes will go to a rookie TE? I just cant buy that.
Morgan/Davis don't do much, as evident from last season. D'Cutt is neither here nor there. He was by far our most consistent WR. Johnson had problems with the Coaches. Unfortunately they let him go. The main problem last year is that we had a QB merry-go-round with a banged up line and everyone knew it. They saw blitzes and the QB was either being hit or falling down. Cleveland has made some adjustments and will be much improved over last season (it's hard not to be much improved after last season.)
We have talented young WRs, but none big enough to go over the middle consistently. That's where KW2 comes into play. He can take on a LB with no problem. I doubt the majority of passes will go his way, but I do see him as a more reliable TE vs guys like Alexander, Ricks, Alge, Boo, Fauria, etc.

There is definitely a lot of hype surrounding him. Mainly from various "Sports Experts", but a lot from his Father as well, a HOF TE himself. A quote from the Plain Dealer has KW1 saying, "He plays just like me, if not better. If I was KW Version 1.0, he is KW Version 2.0..."

What rd do you expect him to go?
What rd would you consider drafting him?
maybe - but probably not
8th or later.
1) Probably not this year
2) I'd put him in the top 5
4) 5th/6th depending how the draft is proceeding
