Cleveland Browns Roster 2018 Browns Roster

7-8, 3rd AFC North

at BAL

6:00 pm GMT, 12/30

The Browns went to the draft board loaded with picks. Baker Mayfield was the first one, but Tyrod Taylor is going to be starting to start the season. Mayfield might start games later on in the year, but Taylor is going to be the guy. The Browns also drafted Nick Chubb, and with Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson in the mix, it will be hard for him to have a meaningful impact early on. Johnson signed an extension and it shows that they want him to have a role. The Browns also traded for Jarvis Landry, and he adds to an already solid receiving core. Josh Gordon was reinstated last season, and Corey Coleman is a threat when healthy. David Njoku is supposed to be locked into a starting role this season, and it is hard to see competition for him. The Browns have a better roster than last year, and should be in some competitive games.

The Most Interesting Roster in Sports: 2018 Cleveland Browns

Last year, the Cleveland Browns finished their season 0-16, again. That's right. Two straight years the Browns have gone 0-16. Yikes. But they've made big changes, turning over at the general manager position, with a new philosophy following it. The coach is still Hue Jackson despite going 0-36 in his last 36 games as a coach. They're different this year though, and they're very interesting. The Browns surprised the entire league by drafting Baker Mayfield with the number one pick. He's brash, young, and cocky as hell. He also is very likeable it seems, and can lead. He is the future, but Tyrod Taylor can win games today in the N.F.L. He will start, until they begin to lose. Baker could be the quarterback as early as week five or six, but could also go startles if the Browns were to finish 9-7 or so.

Isaiah Crowell is no longer a Brown. This is something Cleveland should be grateful for as Crowell still continues to be inconsistent. He just might be too slow. Duke Johnson is still there, but he'll continue to be used as a second or third option. Nick Chubb will slowly become the guy if Carlos Hyde hasn't improved since his days as 49er. By week ten, Chubb will be the starter. Everyone panicked when Josh Gordon didn't show up at training camp. Why? Josh Gordon has missed years now, so many most fans can't even tell you when the last time they saw him play was. Yes, the idea of Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon playing together was a lovely one, and yes, they could have been effective. But oh well. Does nobody remember Mr. Coleman? He's going to have a great season playing on the other side of Jarvis Landry and could be a fantasy sleeper this year depending on how much the Browns trust Tyrod to let it fly.

Joe Thomas is gone. That's an almost impossible gap to fill. While they have young pieces like Bitonio, the Browns line will be a little worse without the great one there to protect the blind side. Myles Garrett was the number one overall pick last year. He has one of the most prolific potentials among any prospect in years. His intangibles are incredible and his athleticism at his position is off the charts. He has every physical gift he could have for the position, but the question has arisen. How much does Myles Garrett actually care about football? If the answer is "it's everything", he'll lead the Browns defense into greatness. Will it happen though?

The young defensive line of the 2018 Cleveland Browns is an interesting specimen. Beyond Garrett, the line is full of potential. Ogbah has proven himself to be an NFL level player and Larry Ogunjobi is but a tiny step behind. The real questions it lie with Trevon Coley. The linebacker core is shockingly solid. They play smart and efficient and do their jobs properly. Jamie Collins and Kirksey are as solid a duo as any in the modern league. How good is Denzel Ward though? Is Jabrill Pepper ready to be the beast he can be? These are the two questions on the Browns defense that will decide their fate. This a team of "boom or bust" players. If they boom, Cleveland will reward them greatly. This isn't a season they're allowed to be glad to win four games though, and everyone knows that. This is a pressure cooker of a situation and will be a great watch this season.
