So I was reading through espn and was looking for any kind of Browns news, rumors, or anything about the upcoming NFL Draft. Then I came upon this article about draft watch. Here's the link if you want to see yourself. http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/tag/_/name/draft-watch-32410-afc

When I was reading it I found a little section on the Cleveland Browns. It said, "There is very little tailback depth on the roster after the team released veteran Jamal Lewis. James Davis is coming off a season-ending shoulder injury and the team acquired Peyton Hillis in a trade with the Denver Broncos. Hillis can play both fullback and tailback positions." Are you kidding me? Very little tailback depth. So having Jerome Harrison, James Davis, Chris Jennings, Peyton Hillis isn't that deep. Last time I checked that's four running backs that can be productive and all of them can play different roles. Don't forget they like to mix it up with Cribbs once in a while. Oh another part in the article asked, "But can the smallish Harrison handle 30 carries a week over the course of a 16-game season?" I've got an answer to that. He doesn't have to. Three other running backs can take that pressure off him(even Cribbs). All I'm saying is that whoever is saying that the Browns tailback depth is low needs to do their research better next time. Even James Davis has said that he's ready to come back.
