1. So is Donovan Peoples-Jones
Another rookie who has been getting the job done is wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones. Taken in the sixth round out of Michigan, Peoples-Jones was the only wideout taken by Cleveland and he’s quickly inserted himself into the discussion when trying to figure out who will be the third wideout.
In the end, it’s most likely going to be Rashard Higgins as the third guy but Peoples-Jones has impressed the staff. For example, head coach Kevin Stefanski lauded his ability to line up anywhere — including in the return game.
"“He’s a versatile football player,” Stefanski said via Anthony Poisal of ClevelandBrowns.com. “Really, you can line him up anywhere, which is impressive for a young player, and he creates value in the return game.”"
DPJ will probably make his mark on the Browns this season as the fourth receiver and he could be used often on special teams. While at Michigan, he simply wasn’t utilized correctly — which had a lot to do with their offensive scheme.
With the Browns, he has an offensive staff that knows how to get the most out of him. They also know getting him the ball in the return game is a good idea since you always want to get the ball into the hands of your playmakers.
