Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Robiskie has been the most impressive player during offseason organized team activities according to head coach Eric Mangini.
“I thought so far Brian Robiskie has had an outstanding camp,” Mangini said. ”He’s showed up quite a bit.”
As one Browns coach said, “He started strong, and then got better. He never let up. He’s made a huge jump.”
Robiskie was drafted in the second round in 2009 ahead of fellow teammate and receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. Massaquoi enjoyed a solid rookie season while Robiskie rarely saw the field.
At Ohio State, Robiskie barely played his freshman season when he had one catch, but had a solid sophomore season with 29 receptions. Perhaps the Browns envision a similar scenario playing out this season.
Despite having a wide receiving corps that has been widely criticized around the league, the only offseason addition was sixth-round pick Carlton Mitchell from South Florida.
Mitchell has an outstanding size-speed combination of 6-foot-3, 215 pounds and a 4.41 40 yard dash.
The Browns eagerly pounced on him when he was still available in the sixth-round, but he needs work on his route running and hands before he’s ready for significant playing time.
