Offensive player I’m most excited to see: Evan Berry, Wide Receiver

As a diehard Tennessee Volunteer fan, there hasn’t really been much to cheer for in recent seasons. But when Evan Berry was healthy and on the field, he was only one touch away from breaking off a huge play for a touchdown. Evan, the brother of NFL Pro Bowl Kansas City safety Eric Berry, didn’t have as great a career as his brother did at Tennessee, but was often misused by the coaching staff.

He hardly saw the field with scrimmage plays, but was one of the most electric kickoff returners in Tennessee history with nearly 35 yards per kick return. Berry was listed as a defensive back, but made the switch to offense and was picked up by the Browns after going undrafted.

He’ll have an uphill battle to climb, but with Josh Gordon still away from the team, and Antonio Callaway being busted again for marijuana possession and having weapon attachments and bullets in his car, the stars just may align for Berry to make an impact on this roster, both at special teams and wide receiver.

Defensive player I’m most excited to see: Jabrill Peppers, Safety

The second-year player out of Michigan still hasn’t found his ideal role in the NFL. But being so athletic, he can play just about anywhere on the field. Although he may not start, with so much new talent in the defensive backfield, he will still have an impact this season somewhere on the field.

Most Browns fans just want to see if he has improved at his defensive position. If not, then perhaps a position change is in the work to maximize his talents.
