No. 2 – Ronnie Harrison
When the Cleveland Browns traded for Ronnie Harrison in 2020, I thought it was the steal of the year. Harrison was not a great fit in Jacksonville, and the organization was ready to let him go for nothing. The Browns gave up a late-round pick and got perhaps their best player on defense during the time Myles Garrett was suspended.
Harrison hasn’t regressed as a football player, but his style of play has really gotten old. He’s a constant threat to get a 15-yard personal foul, and his lack of effort on certain plays is extremely alarming. He’s a guy that can have a five-yard tackle for loss, and then the next play botches a coverage and gives up a 70-yard touchdown.
I was shocked to see the Browns bring him back after some of the issues last year. It feels like he has a real lack of discipline, but defensive coordinator Joe Woods must believe he can get it under control. Again, Harrison has no lack of talent, it’s just a lack of common sense at times on the field.
I worry about him being the guy that gives up the late penalty to give the other team a game multiple times in a season. I fully expected the front office in Cleveland to let him walk, but now we get another year of watching stupid penalties.
