We already looked at areas of big strength for the Cleveland Browns, but where are there still concerns? Here are the three biggest weaknesses heading into 2018.

We are all ready for the 2018 regular season to start. How could we not be? The Cleveland Browns have been front and center all offseason, and this time that statement is true for all NFL fans — not just the diehard supporters of the orange and brown.

That’s what happens when one team owns the No. 1 and No. 4 overall pick in the draft. All eyes are focused on what they’re going to do. Leading up to the draft it was all about what the Browns were going to do with their top pick — as well as what would they do a couple picks later if they even kept that one.

In the end, we know they kept both picks and took quarterback Baker Mayfield and cornerback Denzel Ward. That wasn’t the end of the talk centered around the Browns.

They also captivated people by trading for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and receiver Jarvis Landry. General manager John Dorsey proved he wasn’t afraid of big moves and he continued to make them all summer long.

Then we all got a close up look at all the new pieces with the HBO series ‘Hard Knocks.’ This inside look at the team made fans fall in love with their team even more — if that was possible.

Now headed for the regular season, it’s time to see it all put together. This is surely a better team than they were this time last season — and we highlighted this already by looking at their three positions of great strength. Now, we look at the other side of the coin and dissect the areas of concern with the three positions of weakness that the 2018 Browns will have to overcome to find success.
