Wide Receiver (6):

Amari Cooper
Donovan Peoples-Jones
David Bell
Anthony Schwartz
Demetric Felton
Michael Woods II

There will be a few new faces at wide receiver this season with Amari Cooper leading the way. He’s the best route-runner on this team, and one of the best in the entire NFL. He’s also capable of dropping 200-yards on a defense when he finds a weakness.

Donovan Peoples-Jones will be the No. 2 guy and he’s been a solid find as a sixth-round pick from 2020. He does need to be more consistent but he had 597 yards and three touchdowns last season.

After that, David Bell has the advantage over Anthony Schwartz for the third spot. Demetric Felton makes it as a slot receiver and kick returner — plus he can play running back as well.

Last is Michael Woods II, who had a great camp but does need to show something in the final preseason game.

Tight End(3):

David Njoku
Harrison Bryant
Nakia Griffin-Stewart

David Njoku went from requesting a trade in 2020 due to the tight end room being crowded to landing a multi-year extension with the Browns. He proved to be a superior option to Austin Hooper, which led to the veteran’s release.

Behind him is Harrison Bryant who has shown in his first two seasons that he has dependable hands. As for the final tight end, there are several younger players who don’t have a lot of experience. It comes down to Nakia Griffin-Stewart or Miller Forristall but Griffin-Stewart has been better in the preseason.
