BEREA, Ohio — In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns have selected Donovan Peoples-Jones with the 187th overall pick, their final pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Peoples-Jones is a wide receiver out of Michigan.

Cleveland adds a talented receiver as well as return specialist. Peoples-Jones earned All-Big Ten honors as a receiver in 2018 with 47 receptions for 612 yards and eight touchdowns and as a punt returner with 25 returns for 250 yards and one touchdown.

In his final year in Ann Arbor, Peoples-Jones started nine of 11 games played after an injury and recorded 34 receptions for 438 yards and six touchdowns. He also recorded 24 punt returns for 173 yards in his final year.

“I am very excited. I just needed one chance, and I am very thankful to the Browns and their organization for giving me that chance. I can’t wait to be part of the team," Peoples-Jones said.

The Browns acquired the sixth-round pick from the Arizona Cardinals after the 2018 trade of cornerback Jamar Taylor.

Cleveland held a seventh round pick (No. 244), but sent it to the New Orleans Saints in a trade Friday night. The Browns traded their 74th pick and the seventh-round pick to the Saints in return for the 88th overall pick and a future third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
