Cleveland Browns: How will the tight ends be used?
By Randy Gurzi
The third tight end on the Browns is going to be Seth DeValve. A fourth-round pick out of Princeton, DeValve found himself a nice niche with the Browns last season. He developed into a nice pass catcher with 33 receptions for 395 yards and a score.
His 12 yards per catch average was nice and he offered a solid target in the middle of the field. However, his blocking wasn’t up to par, and DeValve may find himself on the field even less now thanks to the addition of Fells.
Even so, he should be a lock for the third spot — which could be all the tight ends the Browns keep on their roster in 2018.
An undrafted rookie out of Southern Mississippi, Julian Allen had just 22 receptions during his time with the Conference USA team. He did miss all but four games in 2017, while having 19 receptions the year before.
He’s a longshot to make the roster given his limited production during his collegiate years.
Signed in January, Devon Cajuste was an undrafted receiver turned tight end after a career at Stanford. He spent time with the San Francisco 49ers before joining the Green Bay Packers practice squad.

He still has yet to make an active regular season roster, so he will need to make a huge impact to convince the Browns to keep him around.
