5. Who will be the third wideout?
Odell Beckham, Jr. and Jarvis Landry each topped 1,000-yards receiving in 2019 which was a huge accomplishment in itself. The offense, led by former head coach Freddie Kitchens, did nothing to help them out in their endeavors. Far too often, Kitchens simply had Baker Mayfield drop back as deep as if he were about to play safety in a Gregg Williams defense and then hurl it as far as he could.
It wasn’t surprising to see this fail often for them but what was a little shocking was how OBJ and Landry still managed to do as much as they did — especially when considering they were also both dealing with nagging injuries all season as well. Heading into 2020, they’re both coming off offseason surgeries and while Landry is working back slowly, OBJ has been putting on a show with his circus catches of old. However, there is no clear-cut No. 3 wide receiver, which is the final question that needs to be answered when it comes to their receiving corps.
So far in camp, the Cleveland Browns have had three players showing they can get the job done. Rashard Higgins entered as the favorite but he has competition in the form of KhaDarel Hodge and rookie Donovan Peoples-Jones. All three have been playing well in camp and Hodge has made some highlight-reel plays with his deep speed.
One of these players will distinguish themselves from the other but so far, they have yet to do that. Which isn’t a bad thing for the Browns.
