As training camp nears, many wonder about the Browns and what they have to offer for the upcoming NFL campaign.

The biggest question could be, who steps up to take the pressure off second-year receiver Greg Little?

A lot of fans are skeptical about Mohammed Massaquoi. They don't believe he will contribute enough to help the Browns climb into contention. 

Tight ends have become a key position over the past few years. They aren't just expected to block anymore, the best ones are playmakers and become a huge target over the middle against the linebackers.

Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez all have the ability to go up and get the ball. Taller tight ends spread the entire field out as they are threats on the outside and over the middle. The best offenses in the league have them (Patriots, Saints, Falcons, etc...)

The Browns need a guy who can separate himself from the pack and become the next big target in the NFL. He may be on the roster currently, and his name is Jordan Cameron.

Cameron, 23, will be entering his second season in the NFL. Like the other tight ends listed above, he is a former basketball player. He was taken in the fourth round in 2011.

With his 6'5" 220-pound athletic frame, Cameron can go up for the ball with the rest of them; he is also a hybrid type tight end who can bring a different dimension to the Browns' offense.

Cameron can make a big difference for Weeden as he gets comfortable on the field in his rookie season. The Browns haven't had a player with this much upside at the tight end position in a long time.

Cleveland is high on Cameron, who will be getting his big opportunity in training camp this summer. The Browns will attempt to ease him into the flow of the offense. 

Expect the Los Angeles native to pull down 30-40 receptions for 350-400 yards and three to five touchdowns. 

Cameron will be one of the better tight ends in the game and known throughout the entire NFL after the 2012 season.
