Cleveland Browns roster prediction: Specialists (3)
Charley Hughlett keeps plugging along as the long-snapper for the Browns as he enters his seventh season with the team. He’s seen a lot of change around him though and that will again be the case in 2022.
Cleveland moved on from Chase McLaughlin after just one season. McLaughlin started out with a bang but cooled off down the stretch. His struggles were enough to convince the Browns to add Cade York out of LSU with one of their picks in Round 4.
That might seem high for a kicker but with the problems they have had in Cleveland recently, it made sense to try and nail the spot down. York made several 50-plus yard kicks and was able to perform in high-pressure situations as well.
Corey Bojorquez joins the ranks as well after spending 2021 with the Green Bay Packers. Before that, he was in Buffalo with the Bills. Now he’s in Cleveland, which almost feels unfair for a California kid to play for some of the teams in the coldest NFL cities.
In four seasons, Bojorquez has averaged 45.4 yards per kick and put up an 82-yard punt last season as well as a 72-yarder the year prior.
Jakeem Grant will be another specialist as he’s going to be their return guy but he was already mentioned in the wide receiver count.
