Predicting the Cleveland Browns Roster
By Shane Carter
Tight Ends (3): David Njoku, Seth DeValve, Darren Fells
Darren Fells and Seth DeValve are both solid blockers, which makes up for David Njoku‘s lack of blocking. Njoku is the best receiving tight end on the team and will be a fun weapon for Tyrod Taylor, and eventually Mayfield.

Tight end is quietly one of the most complete position groups on the team. Njoku is the receiving threat, Fells is the great blocker and DeValve is the best of both worlds player. The three combined have made tight end a strength after it had been a weakness the past two seasons.
Receivers (6): Jarvis Landry, Josh Gordon, Corey Coleman, Antonio Callaway, Rashard Higgins, Damion Ratley
Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon are the only players I’m positive are starters. Corey Coleman might still be traded or released before the season ends, but still is in the mix as the third receiver on the team.
Antonio Callaway is a wildcard player. Talent-wise, he could be an upgrade over Coleman, but he’ll need to overcome his skeletons in his closet. Maybe his new mentor, Antonio Brown, can help the Browns more than he would probably want to.
Rashard Higgins and Damion Ratley are purely second unit receivers who will predominantly play special teams. They are firmly stuck in competition for the fifth and sixth wide receiver positions.
