Wide receiver Marvin McNutt was one of the most productive wide receivers in Iowa football history, and he is rated by a lot of experts anywhere from a third to fifth round draft pick. McNutt measured in at about 6’3" 216 pounds at the Combine, and he said he had an interview with the Cleveland Browns.
McNutt had some of the biggest hands at the wide receiver position at the Combine at 10 inches, which helped him make some incredible grabs over the course of his college career.
This is a guy who is really underrated because he is not expected to run a fast 40 yard dash as a former quarterback, but McNutt is a very fundamentally sound wide receiver who is constantly improving and proving he can be an effective number one or two receiver at the next level. He has the ability to make plays down the field, across the middle, on the outside, on third down, and in the clutch. He is the type of guy who you rely upon to make big plays when the game is on the line, and that’s what he became known for at Iowa this past year, other than catching a ton of touchdown passes.
This would be a really nice fit, in my opinion. If the Browns are able to go out and get an upgrade at quarterback, or even if they stick with Colt McCoy, the quarterback could really benefit from having McNutt on his side. He is a big, reliable target who will go underdrafted because of his straight line speed.
