The Cleveland Browns remade their wide receiver corps this offseason but where does it put them when compared to the rest of the AFC North?
We all know it’s a passing league anymore. Even the Cleveland Browns who have Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt understand that a dominant run game can get you wins, but a great passing attack is what gets teams in the title race.
That’s why they made a couple of bold moves this offseason, including the addition of quarterback Deshaun Watson and Amari Cooper — who will be their new No. 1 wide receiver.
It’s true they should be better in 2022, but where do they rank among others in the division? Here we answer that as we power rank the AFC North wide receiver corps.
AFC North WR Rankings No. 4: Baltimore Ravens
Top 4 wide receivers: Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, James Proche, Tylan Wallace
The Browns made some moves to get better in the passing game but the Baltimore Ravens seemed to go in the other direction. Their top wideout in 2021 was Marquise Brown who had 91 receptions for 1,008 yards but he was traded to the Arizona Cardinals during the draft.
Baltimore’s banking on Rashod Batemen taking over as the No. 1 target — although they do have Mark Andrews at tight end. Behind Bateman, there are a lot of question marks with very little production.
Having said that, Andrews did have 1,361 yards from his tight end spot and they have a great rushing attack, so they should be fine, but when looking at just the wideouts, they’re last in the North.
