Special teams (3)
Austin Seibert, Britton Colquitt, Charley Hughlett
The Cleveland Browns are hoping to revitalize their special teams units in 2019 after having several poor seasons. The Browns are hoping that the hiring of Mike Priefer as special teams coordinator will play a big role in that turn around.
Of the three specialists on the Browns roster, long snapper Charley Hughlett is the only guarantee to make the roster. He is entering the third year of the six-year extension he signed in 2017, so there will not be a change at long snapper unless Hughlett is injured during training camp. But after Hughlett is where the questions begin.
There is a competition for both the kicker and punter positions. However, kicker seems like the position with the most likely change from last season. Although Greg Joseph has reportedly showed great improvement this offseason compared to last season, he will have a tough time beating out rookie Austin Seibert. The Browns believed in Seibert enough to make him a fifth-round selection, so he will have the leg up to make the final roster.
There may not be as much of a competition at punter because Britton Colquitt remains one of the top punters in the league. Last season, Colquitt finished with the sixth-most punts inside the 20. Although Jamie Gillan has reportedly impressed the coaching staff, he is likely a developmental leg to take some kicks off Colquitt during camp.
