The second installment of the 2015 Cleveland Browns roster analysis focuses on the running backs.
The 2015 NFL season was another brutal one for Cleveland Browns players and fans alike. A 3-13 record led to head coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer getting fired, ushering in another rebuilding process.
After another painful season in Cleveland, it is time to look back at the good that can be found amongst the bad.
The offense as a whole did not do much good throughout the season, but there were certain individuals who surprised in 2015.
The Browns entered the season looking to effectively run the ball with a group of young running backs in an attempt to take pressure off of the quarterbacks, but things did not work out as planned.
Cleveland finished the season 22nd in the league in rushing yards (95.6 yards per game), 16th in average yards per carry (4.0), tied for 29th with just five rushing touchdowns, and had only two runs of more than 40 yards all season.
Dawg Pound Daily’s Eric Sczcepinski has gone through the entire offense to assign grades and give outlooks for what fans can expect from each player in 2016.
There are two installments in this series on the offense to follow, so check in each day to take part in the look back at the 2015 season.
