Kenny Stills Is Determined to Prove Critics Wrong

Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills, who paid a pre-draft visit to the Browns, was advised by many to stick around for his senior season, but opted to come out early.

The NFL's draft advisory board informed him he'd be no higher than a third-round pick, but Stills made the leap anyway.

"I have no regrets," he said. "I felt it was time to step up and challenge myself at the next level. I just want to be able to get on the field and prove myself with my play."

Stills (6-0, 194) raised some eyebrows at the NFL Combine with a 4.38 in the 40. "I always think I could do better, but that's not bad at all," he said. "I think my speed is one of my biggest assets."

During his visit to Cleveland, he spoke easily with offensive coordinator Norv Turner, the former Chargers coach.

"I'm from San Diego, so that helped," he said. "They pass the ball a lot and spread the ball around and that's something I'd really look forward to, having the opportunity to make plays and catch a lot of balls. I think that offense would be a good fit for me."(
