"Overall, the Browns’ talent and lack of an apparent positional weakness should mean the division’s most complete team on paper.Things don’t always go as planned when studying the rosters on paper.

The Browns have one of the deepest rosters in the entire league, but they also boast top-end talent at several positions. On paper, the Browns do have the most talented roster in the division, which should help them win their first division title since 1989.

One of the biggest questions about the 2019 Browns is if Freddie Kitchens and the Browns can handle all of the expectations being thrown their way.
