These 3 Cleveland Browns have rising stock at camp
We are less than two weeks away from the start of the Cleveland Browns 2020 season and the team recently held their first live scrimmage which gave us a glimpse of the team’s offense under Kevin Stefanski ‚— as well as their defense under Joe Woods.
Of course, it’s called a scrimmage for a reason as the team stayed primarily basic on both sides of the ball but still, there was a lot to take away from the event. The biggest being the way some players are starting to separate themselves from the pack.
Here, we look back over that live scrimmage as well as the rest of the camp up until now and pick three players who are seeing their stock rise.
Honorable Mention: Rashard Higgins, KhaDarel Hodge
The battle for the third wide receiver spot has become a good one. For a while, it seemed as though Rashard Higgins had that wrapped up but suddenly there has been a new player making waves — KhaDarel Hodge. Last season, Hodge came over to the Browns from the Los Angeles Rams and had four receptions for 76 yards in 10 games.
This season, he seemed to have an uphill battle to make the team with Higgins coming back — plus the addition of Donovan Peoples-Jones — but all that has done is pushed Hodge to be even better. He’s been making several deep catches and looks to be vastly improved from a season ago.
In the end, he will likely be the fourth receiver because as good as he has been, Higgins has been just as solid. The fifth-year wideout is looking to put a subpar 2019 campaign behind him and he’s been pulling down everything in camp.
