Then draft Tavon Austin and Ryan Swopes. We need at least 5 slot WRs.

Evan Silva ‏@evansilva 4m
Suspect Davone Bess' trade worth is a 5th- or 6th-round pick. No big-play ability. Does get open in slot, catches ball. Just a chain mover

Swope can go vertical. The guy isn't a slot at all. However, Little and Bess are, so I see your point.

No thanks, unless they just want a late round pick or something.

Anything higher than a 5th and I'd be pissed.

Sounds like Welker back in 2006, the Dolphins got a 2nd and 7th from the Patriots. [But, and this is a big part of it, he was a restricted free-agent who was tendered a 2nd round level]

Fair enough.

Don't forget Nelson, Norwood, and Cooper.

I dunno, Little was used in the slot in the WCO. I don't know if he's really 'only' a slot WR.

He's got pretty good size, game-speed, and athletic ability for an outside WR, right?

I think a 5th would be fine with me too, what do you think?

if we got bess for a 5th rd pick I would be thrilled!!!

I think he would def be a go to guy on 3rd down. Just a great possession WR. Him and Little could own the middle with Gordan and TBen taking the top off.

I think the Browns would have a legit WR Corp with Gordan, Little, Bess, TBen, Nelson, and Cooper would be a solid 6 WRs
