The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know. Today’s stories show the team is still low in many Power Rankings.
Expectations are high for the Cleveland Browns this season. That’s usually the case whenever a front office has a massive overhaul of the roster like the Browns just did.
More than half the faces on the 53-man roster are new to the team, which signifies the influx of talent. Assuming the new players are indeed an upgrade from the ones who were let go, it only makes sense Cleveland will improve.
Even so, the recent NFL Power Rankings that have released through major outlets still aren’t giving the Browns a lot of love.

"Over the last three seasons, the Cleveland Browns have redefined the concept of athletic futility. Since the dawn of the 2015 season, the Browns have won four games—and lost 44."
Bleacher Report had the Browns at No. 27 for two weeks in a row. That’s the lowest in the AFC North — with Cincinnati coming in at No. 22. Fans surely hope Cleveland can at the very least pass their Ohio rivals.
29. Cleveland Browns (30)
"Don’t look now, but the Cleveland Browns appear to be finally moving in the right direction, and could end up being one of the surprise teams to keep an eye on in the AFC if all goes according to plan. Then again, when looking at how the team has a disappointing 1-31 record over the last two seasons under Hue Jackson, all the Browns need to do is win two games in 2018, and it will already be viewed as major progress, as sad as that sounds."
Again the Browns were last in the North here with an even lower rank of No. 29. There’s clearly still work to be done to create some believers.
There are a lot of players the Browns are counting on to become better in 2018. While the nature of the NFL has proven there will be let downs every season, there are always even more dependable players that can step up. Here are three such players who will make a difference in 2018.
