2. Caraun Reid, Defensive Tackle
With the Browns already adding Sheldon Richardson, they suddenly have a vastly improved starting defensive tackle duo. What was an issue for them last season is now a strength as Richardson will line up next to Larry Ogunjobi who had a big sophomore campaign in 2018.
The Charlotte product moved into a full-time starting role and had 52 tackles and 5.5 sacks. As for Richardson, the former first-round pick had 49 tackles and 4.5 sacks for the Minnesota Vikings before landing his three-year deal with Cleveland.
As good as those two are, the Browns lack strong depth behind them — barring a Gerald McCoy signing that is. Trevon Coley, Carl Davis, and Brian Price are the primary reserves. They’re not a terrible group by any means, but adding competition is never a bad idea. Should they look for someone late in the process, the Browns could consider Caraun Reid who spent last season with the Dallas Cowboys.
Reid only had 10 tackles and a half sack but he showed some signs of becoming a better interior pass rusher as the season wore on. He wouldn’t be a huge signing, but Reid has enough skill to could help a position in need of some depth. Even if McCoy does leave with a deal, it may not be the worst idea to add more to the line, especially with someone who was trending upward last season.
