The Cleveland Browns have done a lot of improving this offseason and are in a good position as the 2014 season nears. They've added a multitude of talented players through both the draft and free agency, while also finding themselves a potential-filled coach to lead this team.
Ray Farmer, their new general manager, has been the main reason behind the Browns' improvements and is proving to be a smart hire after all. He had a strong draft class to launch the Farmer era in Cleveland, with Johnny Manziel headlining the group.
Farmer has been the mastermind behind a lot of Cleveland's offseason happenings, and they're looking like a much better team because of it—though their best move to date was signing Ben Tate.
The former Houston Texan will finally be in the spotlight as the Browns' featured runner, and he will have a great line to run behind. Tate is a good mix of strength, size and speed, and he'll be a great player for Cleveland to build their offense around.
Not only will Tate open up things in the passing game, but he'll also be the workhorse runner they've been missing—two things the Browns sure could've used in 2013. Regardless, Cleveland is moving on up, and its impending (potential) success will largely be the result of the moves they've made this offseason.
