It is only May, but Hue Jackson has a lot of decisions to make regarding who will start for the Cleveland Browns during the 2017 season.

The NFL Draft has been over for less than one week, but Cleveland Browns fans are already discussing potential positional competitions all over the field.

The main one in mind is quarterback, which will dominate the conversation up until the exact moment when Hue Jackson names a Week 1 starter. Cody Kessler seems to be the favorite right now, but Browns fans know how things can change once training camp gets underway.

But the battles will ensue all over the field, with a notable one set to take place at the right tackle position. While the rest of the line is solidified, Cameron Erving, Shon Coleman and potentially even Roderick Johnson will be fighting for that final spot.

The same goes for spots all over the defense, as a slew of young talent will all be competing to prove they belong.

It is early, but we took a shot at predicting the starters on both offense and defense in 2017. Let’s look at that and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
