Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know
This offseason has been a weird one for the NFL. Concerns about COVID-19 have caused teams to switch to virtual offseason meetings which greatly impacts teams such as the Cleveland Browns who are introducing a new coach as well as a new offensive and defensive system.
That in itself is going to be difficult but so too will be the move for Jedrick Wills from right tackle to left. The Browns first-round pick should have no problem making the move once he gets some reps in — he surely has the talent — but he does need those reps.
Unfortunately, they could end up coming in meaningful games rather than exhibition ones. So, how confident is the team in the No. 10 overall pick’s ability to learn on the fly? Apparently, very confident.
Head coach Kevin Stefanski said as much recently and that story is the lead in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“I’m very confident in Jedrick for a bunch of reasons,‘’ coach Kevin Stefanski said on draft weekend. “First and foremost, I point out (offensive line coach) Bill Callahan. He’s top notch at developing players. This is something that he has done before. Then you have to look at Jedrick’s skillset and you have to look at the makeup of the kid.”"
Wills has the talent, which has never been the question. Unfortunately, there might be some hiccups due to the way this offseason unfolded but there’s not much to do about that rather than play the game and get better every week — which he will surely do.
As of Thursday, there were 59 days remaining until the Browns kicked off their 2020 season. With that being the case, Case Kinnamon looks at the best player in Cleveland history to wear No. 59 — Mike Johnson
Odell Beckham, Jr. never holds back and now he’s saying he wants more targets in 2020 to get himself numbers similar to that of the best in the game. Could that be an issue with the new offense from Kevin Stefanski being so run-heavy?
Myles Garrett is making a ton of money under his new mega extension but with how the NFL works, that could now be the starting point for the next class of edge rushers seeking a new deal. Mitch Zoloty looks at five such players who will break the bank due to the Garrett contract.
