Question No. 4: Will the Browns draft another running back?

With the NFL draft coming up, the Browns would be wise to also consider a few players from this collection of talent. They selected Jerome Ford a year ago and adding more young talent can never hurt. The Browns have had the good fortune of having their running backs stay healthy and avoid major injury but, Nick Chubb will now be entering his sixth season and you never know when something could go wrong.

There are some talented college prospects that could be available in the later rounds, which is when Cleveland would likely pull the trigger. Those players include Tyjae Spears from Tulane, Keaton Mitchell of East Carolina, and Deauce Vaughn of Kansas State.

I'm a fan of Vaughn, who despite his 5-foot-6 height was able to help in a myriad of ways. In his three years at K-State, he rushed the ball 651 times for 3,604 yards and 34 touchdowns. In addition, he caught 116 passes for 1,280 yards and nine more scores.

Whatever route the Browns take, they aren't yet set at the running back position. While they have "old reliable" in Nick Chubb, that doesn't mean they are "set" like some are trying to say today. If the Browns intend on winning a Super Bowl one day, they have to keep trying to add weapons and that includes the running back position.
