Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: WR Brian Robiskie is polished, a smooth route runner and has good hands. He is a team player in the mold of Joe Jurevicius and he will have no problem absorbing the offense. He won't be lost when he puts on a Browns uniform for the first time because he was a ball boy in training camp earlier this decade when his father, Terry Robiskie, was an assistant coach with the Browns. A closer look at the Browns' picks: Round 2/36 -- Brian Robiskie, WR, 6-3, 207, Ohio State...Robiskie caught 97 passes, 19 of them for touchdowns, over the last two seasons. If he does not start he will be the slot receiver. He has deceptive speed, but what the coaches like most is his competitiveness and maturity. He should be worth 50 catches. - by The Sports Xchange
