Wide receivers (6)
Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway, Rashard Higgins, Damion Ratley, Derrick Willies
Over the past decade, the wide receiver position was consistently one of the weakest positions on the Browns’ roster. But that will certainly not be the case in 2019 as the Browns have one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.
The top four are almost guarantees to make the final roster, as Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry are a top wide receiver pairing in the NFL. Beckham will be the vertical threat the Browns missed last season and Landry will be able to play his more comfortable role in the slot.
There is also expectations for Antonio Callaway in his sophomore season after his performance improved during the second half of last season. Rashard Higgins became a vital member of the Browns offense last season and has great chemistry with Mayfield, so he should also be comfortable with his roster spot.
The last two receivers on the depth chart are the biggest question marks. Both Damion Ratley and Derrick Willies played well in limited time last season. If they want to ensure their chances to round out the wide receiver depth chart, they will have to perform on special teams.
The one receiver who could potentially steal one of the final roster spots is Ishmael Hyman. Hyman, who was signed after playing in the AAF, played well after playing extended snaps with the first-team offense as Cleveland’s top receivers missed practices in the offseason. However, the Browns may roll with the receivers they are more familiar with and flashed their ability in regular season games last year.
