Every team in the NFL has room for improvement on their roster. See who the Cleveland Browns would steal from division rivals if possible.
The Cleveland Browns have upgraded their roster substantially this offseason, but there are still a few spots that could be filled with better talent. After rebuilding the offensive line in 2020, Baker Mayfield is set up for a huge year. However, there is a bit of concern with the front seven on the defensive side of the ball.
The Browns lost two major veteran leaders in Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey this offseason. General manager Andrew Berry has been busy, but he has yet to address the linebacker position. Analytics don’t value the position as much as others, but there is a real lack of experience that is concerning for many fans.
However, Brown’s fans still have reason to stay positive. This is likely the most talented roster the organization has had since the return of the team in 1999. While talent didn’t translate into wins last season, Berry and new head coach Kevin Stefanski will make a huge difference in 2020.
Picking a player to steal from each division rival may be a little farfetched, but after seeing these teams twice a year for so long there is certainly a player on each team you would love the Browns to have. Sometimes it’s a player you hate, but you can openly admit you hate them because they are so good. In other situations, it may be a player that went to a college of your liking or you’ve always enjoyed their game.
My favorite example is past Cleveland Cavalier, Anderson Varejao. Many teams and fans hated Varejao, but only because he gave 100 percent effort every second that he was on the court. He would dive for balls and wasn’t afraid of anyone in his way. I would argue, people who hated him were only jealous he wasn’t on their team.
Let’s now take a dive into the AFC North. What one player from each team in the division would the Cleveland Browns steal to make their roster perfect? Keep reading to find out.
