3 thinnest positions on the 2022 Cleveland Browns roster
Cleveland Browns Weakest position No. 2 – Wide Receiver
I’m extremely excited to see what Amari Cooper can bring to this roster. Giving up a fifth-round pick for someone with such a high ceiling is a great move. Cooper is an elite route runner and fits this scheme perfectly which should allow him to elevate his game higher than it’s ever been.
Where I still see some weakness is after Cooper. Donovan Peoples-Jones has shown flashes of greatness, but no consistency that makes me believe he can be a solid No. 2 receiver in the NFL. I truly believe DPJ will make or break this Browns offense in 2022. If he can give a more consistent effort and hit the 800-yard receiving mark, I think this team will be successful.
If you see him having a decent game followed by two games where he doesn’t even have a target. You could see DPJ with another 500-yard receiving season, and that just isn’t going to cut it as the No. 2 guy.
There are also high expectations of rookie David Bell, who recently had a setback and will start camp on the physically unable to perform list. These rookies need as many repetitions as possible to be ready for the season, so Bell will already be a step behind.
Anthony Schwartz, Ja’Marcus Bradley, and others will be fighting for that fourth spot, but none have really had any success at this level. I do think Berry is satisfied with the players on his roster, but I am afraid this position group could struggle in 2022.
