These 5 players are expected to do big things for the Cleveland Browns, but there’s a chance we could be overhyping them a bit

We have all been guilty of it, and it has happened recently. Cleveland Browns fans have been starved for success for so long that it’s easy to grasp to the hope offered by a new player who is expected to bring change.

Sadly, this has often blown up in the team’s faces. For recent examples, look at Brady Quinn,  Justin Gilbert, Kenny Britt, and of course, Johnny Manziel.

All of those players were supposed to help turn the franchise around. And while there were those who shared their doubts — especially in the case of Manziel who was a walking controversy — there were just as many, if not more, who felt each of those players were going to be stars.

Of course, it’s hard to be upset with anyone for believing in their players. That’s what fans are supposed to do. They show unwavering loyalty and they want their team to succeed so badly that they often try and will it into existence.

Looking ahead to the 2020 season, the Browns are still trying to find their way. They haven’t had a winning season since 2007 and haven’t made it to the postseason since 2002. Their roster is starting to come around and they look to be a contender for the playoffs this year, but could we all be overhyping some of the players on the roster?

Here we look at five players who are expected to lock their positions down, but could be somewhat overhyped by the fans who root for them.
