Cleveland Browns: 1. KhaDarel Hodge, WR
This time one year ago, KhaDarel Hodge had just won the role of the number three receiver. After injuring himself during warmups in the fourth game of the season against the Cowboys, Hodge found himself on the sidelines. During his time on the IR, Hodge was surpassed by Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones.
Hodge is a solid receiver and a massive contributor on special teams. On most NFL rosters he would have a nice role carved out for himself. However, as the Browns wide receiver room has blossomed, Hodge might find himself on the outside looking in.
In addition to the players that passed by him last season, the Browns added two rookies: world-class speedster Anthony Schwartz, and the do-it-all Demetric Felton. Schwartz brings ridiculous speed to the wideout room, and Felton has a game tailor-made for what Kevin Stefanski wants to do. Add in starters, Odell Beckham, and Jarvis Landry, and you seven NFL caliber receivers.
The Browns will not be keeping seven receivers on their roster. Unless Hodge is able to separate himself from the pack during these final two preseason games, he will find himself on one of the other 31 NFL teams. They will be lucky to have him.
