The Browns drafted Auburn WR Ricardo Louis at No. 114

The Browns selected Auburn WR Ricardo Louis with the No. 114 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

BEREA, OHIO-- The Browns added another wide receiver in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. 

Cleveland selected Auburn WR Ricardo Louis with the No. 114 overall selection on Saturday, despite the receiver telling reporters that he had no contact with the Browns prior to the draft. 

Louis stands at 6'2, 215 pounds and ranks 11th in Auburn history with 98 receptions and 15th in school history with 1,338 career receiving yards. He also made the game-winning, 73-yard touchdown catch on a 'Hail Mary' pass against Georgia in 2013. 

At the 2016 NFL Combine, Louis ran a 4.43 40-yard dash. 

Mike Mayock of NFL Network had a 6th-round grade on Louis because he has good size and speed, but has problems with dropping the football. 

On a conference call, Louis said that he's heard a lot of criticism, but that he still has confidence in his abilities. 

"I'm probably one of the better receivers in this draft," Louis said. "My goal is to prove it."

Louis is the second receiver taken by the Browns in the 2016 draft, after the team selected WR Corey Coleman of Baylor with the No. 15 overall selection in the 1st round.
