With the No. 6 overall pick, the Browns should have a good chance at finding a franchise-caliber player. But after selecting wide receiver Josh Gordon in the second round of last year's supplemental draft, the Browns' second-round pick was forfeited.

So if the Browns opt not to trade down from No. 6 or back up into the second round, 61 players will come off the board before another selection comes around (the New Orleans Saints also had to forfeit their second-round pick).

Trying to pinpoint a team's target that late in the draft, and this early in the process, is undeniably a risky proposition. Free agency can change draft needs and the NFL Scouting Combine later this month will surely shuffle draft boards. When looking at the 68th pick, which the Browns own, you could argue that there are dozens of potential fits at this time.

Nevertheless, here are a few potential targets to watch, not in any order:

Jordan Reed, tight end, Florida, 6-foot-3, 240 pounds -- Reed is thought of as a big wide receiver, a versatile weapon to be employed in the passing game. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner have made good uses of tight ends in the past (Chudzinski has also been a tight ends coach in the NFL). Benjamin Watson is set to become a free agent, and Chudzinski might be looking for a new weapon.

Robert Alford, cornerback, Southeastern Louisiana, 5-foot-11, 184 pounds -- Yes, Southeastern Louisiana is a real college. Alford is an explosive player who also spent time as a kick returner and even some time as a wide receiver. Sheldon Brown, who is turning 34 this March, is scheduled to become a free agent, and Buster Skrine was picked on when forced into a starting role.
