Rip Van Winkle of the Day

If you're a Browns fan, you probably didn't watch too much of the 2008 NFL Draft. Because they weren't a big part of it. For those of you who forget, the Browns traded away their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round picks. With the few picks they did have, the Browns drafted one player who could end up being a steal in both the actual draft and your fantasy football draft. Paul Hubbard/WR: Granted he's only a rookie, but he has a lot of talent in an offense that is chalk full of it. Hubbard has blazing speed and when he is on his game, he's very tough to beat. Consistency is an issue, however, reason being he wasn't selected higher in the draft. With Joe Jurevicius still battling knee problems which could continue the whole year, the door is open for another WR to make noise. The Browns' offense, as much as I hate to say it as I'm a Steelers fan, is potent. A strong offense is never a bad thing for a rookie wide receiver. Don't count on Hubbard to always put up points, heck I wouldn't count on him too much; he's a pretty deep sleeper, but he could be a bye week fill in who may end up being the key to your team winning that week.
