4. Jadeveon Clowney, EDGE
Why have just one No. 1 overall pick at defensive end when you can have two? After chasing Jadeveon Clowney in 2020, the Browns ended up landing him in free agency this season and he should start opposite Myles Garrett.
Clowney, who was taken first overall out of South Carolina in 2014 by Houston, does have some questions to answer. He enters 2021 on his fourth team in as many seasons and has struggled with health for much of his career.
In 2020, he was on a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans and played in eight games before surgery ended his campaign. He also has those questioning his talent since he had no sacks for the Titans in eight games and. just three the season prior for Seattle.
Those who have paid attention know that Clowney does much more than just get after the quarterback and is a disruptive force but when a player has the name recognition he does, the stats are always going to be used to justify their presence on a roster.
Having said all that, Clowney is healthy and ready to wreak havoc for Cleveland. And once he’s in Berea for training camp, look for him to make a splash. His size and power are going to be turning a lot of heads and help alleviate many of the questions Browns fans have about his fit with the team.
