The Cleveland Browns have a lot of good players on their team, but some players on the roster don’t get the credit they deserve for what they bring to the table
On paper, this is easily the most talented Cleveland Browns team we have seen since the franchise returned to the NFL in 1999. General manager John Dorsey has done a great job in his two offseasons at the helm with putting this roster together — and building a team capable of contending in the AFC North.
Under center, he gave them Baker Mayfield who broke the record for most passing yards in team history by a rookie last year. The No. 1 overall pick out of Oklahoma didn’t stop there as he topped Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson‘s league-leading mark for most touchdown passes by a rookie as well.
As good as Mayfield was in his first season, he can be even better in 2019 as the Browns have put an even better team around him this year. The biggest addition on offense is Odell Beckham, Jr. who came over in a trade with the New York Giants. He joins his best friend Jarvis Landry in forming one of the most impressive receiving duos in the game right now.
Defensively, the best addition can be a toss-up. Three new players will make their presence known as they added defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson via free agency, defensive end Olivier Vernon in a trade, and cornerback Greedy Williams in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
With all those players getting the love they deserve, it has some other players who are going to be a big part of the team’s plans this season becoming underappreciated. Here we look at three such players who will be big contributors, even if they don’t get the attention they should.
