Tight End (3): David Njoku, Darren Fells, Seth DeValve
This position could be dangerous for the Browns. David Njoku went off in their first preseason game with a couple touchdown catches — the second of which he hauled in from Baker Mayfield in a crowd of defenders. He has great speed and athleticism which sets him apart from the rest of the roster.
Behind Njoku is Darren Fells, who is a former basketball player known for his ability as a blocker. He’s lined up in an H-back role for the Browns as well as an in-line tight end. Fells won’t do much in the passing game, but his impact will still be felt.
The final player to make it as a tight end is Seth DeValve. He’s an underrated player who had 33 receptions and 395 yards last season as the No. 2 tight end for the Browns. DeValve may be the third name, but he will be the second in terms of pass targets at tight end.
One name missing here is Devon Cajuste, who has quickly become a fan favorite on Hard Knocks. Cajuste’s story centered around his father and his health issues and now he’s hearing chants of ‘juice’ when he pulls in passes. While it would be a great story, he’s simply on a team that has too many good options at tight end. Tight ends also take their biggest steps in year two and that should be the case with him.
