Al Saunders joined the Browns as senior offensive assistant on Jan. The past two seasons, Saunders worked primarily with the Browns wide receivers. Last year, he worked with Josh Gordon, who returned to the NFL after missing the previous 44 consecutive games. Inhe helped Terrelle Pryor Sr. In his first season at the position, Pryor led the team in receptions 77receiving yards 1, and receiving touchdowns four.
His reception total was the fourth-most by a Browns wide receiver and his yardage total was seventh-most by a Browns wide receiver.

Comparatively, Taylor's Buffalo Bills ranked no worse than seventh in turnover ratio and were bottom six in interceptions each of his three seasons. And yes, that includes last year's infamous "Nate Peterman game" in Los Angeles.
DeShone Kizer handled a majority of Cleveland's quarterback snaps as a rookie last season, and to say he struggled would be a massive understatement. He was picked off 22 times six more than any other quarterback and was off-target on 23 percent of his throws second worst.
The year-old former Virginia Tech star racked up 65 touchdowns while throwing only 16 interceptions in his three-year stint in Buffalo. There are reasons why teams short on roster talent can sneak into a playoff spot like the Taylor-led Bills and recently Alex Smith -led Chiefs. And limiting turnovers is the primary one.
Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was traded to Cleveland with one year remaining on his deal. A terrific athlete, Taylor has racked up at least rushing yards and four scores in each of the past three seasons and is averaging a healthy 5.
He ranks second to only Cam Newton at the position in carries, rushing yardage and rushing touchdowns over the past three years. Taylor rarely lights up defenses through the air and occasionally struggles with accuracy, but trailing only Brady in interceptions and being second only to Newton in rushing prowess is pretty darn good. Taylor is expected to be under center for most ofbut if first overall pick Baker Mayfield proves to be so good that he snags the job, that's just more good news for Cleveland's chances.
If the offense is in solid shape with Taylor, that would launch the unit even further. That new guy under center has help Taylor spent the first five years of his career as Joe Flacco 's backup in Baltimore and the past three as the starter in Buffalo.
And yet, he'll easily enjoy the best supporting cast of his career in Cleveland. It starts with the offensive line. The elephant in the room is the retirement of superstar left tackle Joe Thomaswhich leaves the team a bit shaky with third-round pick Shon Coleman in Thomas' place. That's easily the weakest spot on the line.

Right tackle Chris Hubbard was signed away from division rival Pittsburgh and is a solid presence opposite Coleman. Overall, Cleveland has a top line. The offensive skill players are also better than we've seen in Cleveland in a long time. Josh Gordon has had his share of off-field issues, but the super-talented, 6-foot-3, pound split end is still only 27 years old and has elite upside. Cleveland traded for slot man Jarvis Landrywho ranks third in the NFL with receptions since entering the league in Corey Coleman has struggled as the team's No.
Josh Gordon made his return to the NFL late incatching his first touchdown pass against the Packers in Week David Njoku was one of the team's three first-round picks in and the former Miami Hurricane has massive upside. He's a physical freak at 6-foot-4 and pounds, and doesn't turn 22 years old until July.
Free-agent acquisition Carlos Hyde and second-rounder Nick Chubb form an outstanding three-man committee with receiving specialist Duke Johnson Jr. Hyde is coming off a high-volume, low-efficiency season in San Francisco, but has been one of the NFL's most effective backs since entering the league in Chubb was one of the best pure rushers in a deep draft class and is a big, tough back at 5-foot and pounds.
Johnson is an elite receiving back, ranking first at the position in receptions and receiving yards 1, since being drafted in the third round of This is already an above-average offense on paper. It could be even better than expected if Coleman and Njoku take a step forward.

The defense has some pieces As you might imagine, last year's troubles with interceptions had ill effects on the defense. Cleveland showed up near average or slightly below in most advanced defensive categories, but surrendered points second most. A major reason for this was an opponent average starting field position of Cleveland otherwise allowed an average drive distance of That's a good start, and some offseason improvements suggest this unit will be even better in Those improvements start in the secondary.
The Browns struggled against the pass last year, allowing 7. They raised eyebrows when they traded top corner Jason McCourty to New England, but more than compensated for his departure by signing E. Gaines and Carrie enjoyed breakout campaigns with Buffalo and Oakland, respectively, in And Ward has elite upside as a shutdown perimeter corner.

Safety is a big question mark but there's a ton of upside with first-rounder Jabrill Peppers and first-rounder and converted corner Damarious Randall. They're the projected starters, and starting strong safety Derrick Kindred is also in the fold.
