There are some players on the Cleveland Browns who didn’t stand out last season but are bound to explode in 2020.
All of 2019 was a disappointment for the Cleveland Browns but there are some players who played well, despite what the stats may say. If you pair the talent on this team with their new (and hopefully improved) coaching staff led by former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski, expectations for the Browns coming to this season are as high as ever.
They addressed a lot of their problems in the off-season starting with a new front office led by Andrew Berry as well as allowing Stefanski to replace nearly every coaching position — although he did keep special teams coach Mike Priefer who has connections to Stefanski from their days in Minnesota together.
The Browns added talent on the offensive line, defensive line and secondary through free agency and the draft. But you won’t find any of those players on this list of players who could explode in 2020. Instead, these are all players who were on the roster last season and for one reason or another are going to take huge a leap for these revamped Browns.
These are also players that will be crucial to the team improving their record. With the NFL expanding the playoffs to seven teams, improving by a couple of wins could land Cleveland a playoff spot.
That is a long way away for this team but when you look at their roster it’s hard to envision them being worse than they were last year. Keep an eye out for these three players to be a big part of the turnaround.
