Jerome Harrison Cleveland Browns Running Back

chuck mitchellContributor IMarch 3, 2010









When looking over the Cleveland Browns roster, there is only one guy who I would consider on draft day, Jerome Harrison. He recorded 862 yards averaging 4.4 yards per carry. His longest run for was for a 71 yard touchdown and he recorded 5 touchdowns, yet he only played in 12 games. He seemed to get stronger as the season went on. The browns will more than likely have Brady Quinn at quarterback and will use their running game to take pressure off the young quarterback. The offensive line is a talented group that protects the quarterback well, the question is can they run block?

Harrison could be a potential fantasy star this year, assuming he stays healthy. The team needs to continue to build a wall of an offensive line surrounding that gives Brady Quinn great protection while opening up great holes for Harrison. The job is wide open for him to take. The veteran Jamaal Lewis is likely to step into retirement. This guy could be a quality 2nd or 3rd running back on your fantasy team this season. I would not reach to high for him; he looks like he is a 2nd of 3rd tier running back. He should be a running back to watch this summer; his stock will probably rise to the top 10 running backs in the league due to the fact that he will be an immediate starter.
if you are not dominating your fantasy football league it is obvious; you need to get into the end zone.
