Five Cleveland Browns Who Could Change Positions in 2012

"I believe diversity is a type of old, old wooden ship, used back in the Civil War."— Ron Burgundy, Anchorman

Winning the AFC North will require players with diverse skill sets. The Cleveland Browns will field a young offensive line with two grizzled pros and three young guns with great potential and a defensive backfield featuring three very solid starters.

We will immediately see how the injury to Phil Taylor shakes up things on the defensive line; don't be surprised to see Frostee Rucker playing inside Juqua Parker on third downs.

Additionally, though GM Tom Heckert, Jr. has struck gold after the first round over and over again, occasional draft-board favorites fail to pain out. This year's case in point could be Owen Marecic, the two-way fullback-linebacker out of Stanford for whom I myself held high hopes. Drafting Brad Smelley out of Alabama doesn't quite mean Marecic has been replaced, but it he hasn't exactly retained his job, either.

Which other Cleveland Browns could see action in a new spot in 2012?
