WR Chandler Jones may be a 'diamond in the rough' for Browns

In case you've been living under a rock for the past couple of months, you know the Browns have a problem at wide receiver.
Josh Gordon @JOSH_GORDONXII's suspension, which will probably be handed down soon, is expected to cost him the entire season. Behind him, the Browns' top wideouts are Andrew Hawkins @YoungBabyHawk, the perennially gimpy Miles Austin @MilesAustinIII, and soon-to-be-33-year-old Nate Burleson @Nate13Burleson. Is anyone going to come up from the depths to give this group a boost? Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland was asked on Twitter today if he saw any "diamonds in the rough" during OTAs and minicamp.
Grossi's response: "Maybe Chandler Jones."

Fantasy Analysis:

What a confident endorsement.
Jones is a diminutive speedster from San Jose State. He was an offensive record-setter in college and signed in May as an undrafted free agent. He has sub-4.4 wheels, but he's basically a poor man's version of Hawkins. The Browns' receiving corps is as unsettled a group as there is in the league, but Jones has a tall hill to climb to be worth anything more than a deep dynasty stash.
