As the Cleveland Browns inch closer to the season, let’s take a look at three players who could make a surprising impact on the 2020 season.
The Cleveland Browns and general manager Andrew Berry has put together a roster that appears to have a good amount of depth on it at most positions. With Berry adding key players at positions of weakness through free agency and the draft, he set the Browns up for success in 2020.
Questions remain however, especially at the linebacker position where is was only addressed with the signing of a sparsely used linebacker and a third-round draft pick. But there are many players on this roster who can pop-up and surprise us.
Here are three players who can make surprise impacts in 2020.
No. 3: Jojo Natson, WR/KR
Jojo Natson was signed as a free agent in March from the L.A. Rams. Natson was not brought on this team to catch passes. His value to this club will be on special teams returning kicks. Something the Browns struggled with a season ago.
With a 22.2 yard per kick return last season, and excellent speed, Natson has game-changing abilities in the return game. He has never busted one for a touchdown in his three-season playing career, but hopefully that changes in 2020.
While his value on special teams is why he was brought to Cleveland, expect Natson to get a chance at playing time on offense. Speed kills, and that is something that Natson provides. With the lack of depth behind Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry questionable, Natson should be able to show what he can do in training camp.
Look for Natson to not only be a big-time player on special teams but also a limited contributor on the offensive side of the ball in 2020.
