The Cleveland Browns have released their unofficial depth chart for Week 1 against Chiefs, and it comes with some surprises
It is officially game week for the Cleveland Browns, as the highly anticipated Week 1 matchup with the Chiefs creeps closer and closer.
After the Chiefs ended the Browns season last year in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Browns will come into the game with a chip on their shoulder.
The Browns have released their unofficial depth chart for their upcoming game. While the key word here is unofficial, some surprises still come with their first one of the season.
If you’ve already taken a look at the unofficial depth chart, I think it is safe to say that the most obvious surprise here is Mack Wilson being listed as a starter over rookie Jeremiah Owusu-Koromoah.
I get it, talking about Wilson seems like beating a dead horse at this point. On and off the field, he seems to get a lot of talk and attention. After a solid rookie season and a dreary sophomore season, Wilson has clearly improved and worked on his physique.
That said, Owusu-Koromoah is arguably the most exciting pick coming out of this years draft, and looked ready to contribute after seeing him in pre-season action. Again, this is unofficial and will most likely change. Even if it doesn’t, expect to still see a good dose of Owusu-Koromoah.
Another attention grabber on the depth chart is it appears that rookie corner Greg Newsome has beaten out Greedy Williams for the CB2 spot. While this one may not be much of a surprise, seeing Newsome win the job and get the opportunity to start alongside Denzel Ward is refreshing.
Every other move seems to have gone as expected. One exciting piece to the puzzle is seeing them give kick returning duties to Demetric Felton and hand punt returning duties to Donovan Peoples-Jones.
The Browns are loaded on paper all across the board, but again they must not just look good on paper, but prove their worth on the football field as well.
