Cleveland Browns: Ranking biggest team needs in 2019 NFL Draft
Ranking the remaining needs after free agency and trades on the Cleveland Browns roster as the 2019 NFL Draft approaches.
This very well could be the most complete Cleveland Browns roster since the franchise returned to the NFL in 1999. They finally found their starting quarterback in Baker Mayfield, which makes everything look better, but the rest of the roster has been addressed as well this offseason which has fans ready for opening weekend.
There really aren’t many starting spots up for grabs, with one of the biggest holes being filled by the recent signing of strong safety Morgan Burnett. Cleveland also seems to have taken care of the third linebacker spot by signing Adarius Taylor, although he could have some competition in second-year player Genard Avery.
General manager John Dorsey also added Odell Beckham, Jr. and Olivier Vernon from the New York Giants which fills out the receiver and defensive end depth chart respectively.
To sum it all up, this team could take the field today and be a competitive roster. The best part about that statement is they still have the draft coming up to add even more talent — and the Browns are set up for success in that department considering their lack of a dire need.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t some areas to still cover. Cleveland does need to add some depth to a few positions and there’s nothing wrong at all with adding someone who can push a veteran and make them earn the right to keep their starting job.
With all that being said, here is a ranking of what needs the Browns should address whenever they are on the clock in the 2019 NFL Draft.
