The first Oklahoma Sooners offensive player of the 2022 NFL Draft was finally taken off the board when the Cleveland Browns selected WR Mike Woods with the 202nd overall pick in the sixth round. Grant Calcaterra doesn’t count.

Cleveland joins the Denver Broncos as the second team to draft multiple Sooners this year after taking DT Perrion Winfrey in the fourth round with the 108th pick.

Originally an Arkansas Razorback, Woods transferred to OU but didn’t exactly have the same success he had in 2020 with the Hogs. While his yards did go down, he did reach a college career-high in receptions.

After losing both Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, the Browns needed new blood in their receiver room, and have double-dipped at the WR position with Woods and Purdue’s David Bell.

Woods is a deep threat. Not much more than that. While fast, he struggled to stick out in Lincoln Riley’s offense with both Spencer Rattler and Caleb Williams under center.

The Browns are definitely adding bodies to their receiver room, but I’m not sure Mike Woods will do very much, but perhaps he can snag a roster spot near the bottom half of the depth chart.

Hopefully things go better in Cleveland for Woods and Winfrey than for Baker Mayfield.
