The Cleveland Browns were one of the most active teams this offseason when it came to acquiring players. They spent big money in free agency and were freewheeling traders during the draft as well. Like any offseason, the odds are that each and every player will not live up to their billing.
Then again, some players will far surpass what people thought of them at the time they were acquired. The best general managers make this a habit during their tenures. Browns general manager Ray Farmer is hoping that this will be a trademark of his first season in charge.
Even though the Browns brought in quite a bit of talent, they did not spend all their money and did not use all 10 of their draft picks they had entering the draft. They spent and drafted with certain purpose.
Let’s take a look at a few of those acquisitions who will either live up to their billing or leave something to be desired. It’s time for overrated or underrated.
