After so many years of being snubbed, the Cleveland Browns could have at least four players earn their first All-Pro honors in 2021.
For so long Cleveland Browns players were overlooked for season accolades. Not only were they snubbed many All-Pro honors, but they also couldn’t even get guys in the Pro Bowl. I guess when you consistently win 4-6 games a year those types of things will just happen.
Things are finally turning as last year the Browns had two first-team All-Pro’s in Myles Garrett and Jack Conklin, and they also had two second-team All-Pros in Joe Bitonio and Wyatt Teller. Side note, an absolute travesty that Teller was not selected to first-team even with missing a few games.
With high expectations in 2021, the Browns could have another strong showing on the All-Pro teams, and these four players could receive their first honors.
No. 4 – Jadeveon Clowney
I know the last few years Jadeveon Clowney hasn’t had great production. It’s crazy to think a guy with his skillset only has three sacks the last two years.
Remember, you can’t just measure success in sacks. Clowney is an elite run defender and has been the No. 1 option the last two seasons which has caused a lot of double teams and chips.
With Garrett opposite of him this year drawing a ton of attention, you could see a breakout season like 2017 for Clowney. He will continue to dominate in the running game and could also end up with 10-plus sacks.
Having two All-Pro’s at defensive end will be a huge challenge for the Cleveland Browns, but something that is certainly attainable in 2021.
