The Browns let Terrelle Pryor go to Washington via free agency and released tight end Gary Barnidge after the NFL Draft, so the top two targets from last season are gone. Who is going to step up?

Kenny Britt was brought on via free agency after reviving his career with a 1,000-yard season with the Rams last season. The Browns also released slot receiver Andrew Hawkins, so second-year receivers Rashard Higgins, Ricardo Louis and Jordan Payton must show development. Tight end is a less of a question mark. First-round pick David Njoku has big upside as a mismatch and should start right away.
The Browns allowed a league-worst 66 sacks last season. No other team allowed more than 50, so offensive line was a glaring area of need, especially on the interior.
Cleveland addressed that by signing Green Bay’s J.C. Tretter and Cincinnati’s Kevin Zeitler on the first day of free agency, and it extended Joel Bitonio. Future Hall of Famer Joe Thomas returns at left tackle, and the X-factor is whether Cameron Erving or Shon Coleman steps up at right tackle. The Browns added Roderick Johnson, Erving’s former teammate at Florida State, via the draft. This unit should be much-improved in 2017.
