It’s that time of year again. Time for prospects to throw on some Under Armor and see how fast they can run in a straight line for NFL teams. This year, however, the Cleveland Browns have tons of ammo and a chance to make some heavy improvements.
Teams use the scouting combine to find out how players perform under the pressure of competition of their peers as well as the pressure of questions from executives. As silly as it sounds, a .5-second difference in a 40-yard dash time can cost a prospect millions of dollars. A puzzling answer in an interview can cost millions just the same.
The Browns, like every team, will be looking for the very best players they can add to their organization. They will grade the players based on overall talent and slant that analysis with a view toward their own personal needs.
Fortunately for the Browns, they need a lot. The abundance of needs means they should be open to drafting just about every position on the field. Let’s take a look at some of the types of players they will covet.
