As we approach the NFL draft, there is a ton of talk about needs for each team. For the Cleveland Browns, there are perceived needs all over the field. Those needs become much clearer when you map out the current depth chart.
Any free-agent acquisition of substance has already been made, and the only meaningful additions left will happen through the draft.
It is always interesting to see the depth chart before the draft. Could the Browns compete for the playoffs with the roster as is? No, they probably could not, but they also do not seem that far away.
The biggest question mark remains at the quarterback position. If Brian Hoyer can take steps toward becoming a legitimate starter, the Browns could be in good shape. Or perhaps, if they hit a home run with the quarterback they draft, they could be even better.
Either way, a good foundation has been built. Let’s check out the Browns' projected starters before the May 8-10 draft.
