The Cleveland Browns have numerous holes to fill, but luckily they have the cap space and draft picks to get the job done. Here are five areas that should be a priority for general manager John Dorsey.

Another season has come and gone for the Cleveland Brows and it always seems to be the same song and dance surrounding one position: the quarterback. Although, to be fair, it’s not the only position in need of addressing, but it still is, and has been for years, the biggest question mark for the franchise.

In addition to finally finding a quarterback, the team has a myriad of other holes that need filled before the 2018 season begins.

Luckily for the Browns, they have the most cap space in the league (around $110 million per and plenty of draft picks; six of which are in the first 65 picks of the draft. All the team needs is to hope that general manager John Dorsey can do what no other general manager has done for Cleveland, which is to fix the problems.

If the Browns want to make any sort of progress this upcoming season, they can’t keep doing the same things they’ve been doing. With a new general, it means the opportunity is there for change.

They’ll need to be ruthlessly aggressive in free agency, instead of mildly going after players. They have the most cap room in the league; use it!

Whatever holes aren’t fixed in free agency can be repaired in the draft. No more trading out of a draft spot and allowing someone else to grab the franchise quarterback. They need to use their picks. Use them on players and instead of trading back, trade up and get more players.

In short, it’s time for the Browns to not be the Browns anymore.
