Predicting the rest of the Browns Offseason

The biggest Browns needs to compete for a title:

  • LB
  • CB
  • SS

LB:
I am predicting the Browns trade for Darron Lee. It has been rumored he is going to be moved with the addition of CJ Mosley. He is a former first-round pick of the Jets. He is athletic, can cover sideline-to-sideline, and had an 84.8 coverage grade last season, per PFF. The Browns must address LB depth. After Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey, depth is very slim. Genard Avery progressed in coverage but is mostly a situational edge rusher. The rest of the linebacker depth is mostly special teamers. Adding the number 24 ranked LB in football, per PFF, in Darron Lee would certainly help.

SS:
Tre Boston:
He is physical, experienced, and had a decent season with Arizona last season. He has eight interceptions the past two seasons. He fits the youthful core the Browns have as a 26-year-old. He also had some tweets linked to his Twitter regarding the Browns.

Derrick Kindred played well as a box safety during the Hue Jackson era, so it is very possible the Browns do nothing and give him a look.

Draft options:
Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. Florida
Juan Thornhill, Virginia
Taylor Rapp, Washington
Johnathan Abram, Mississippi State

CB:

The Browns will need to wait until some players are cut or come up in trade talks when they want to fill the cornerback hole. The Free Agency well is dry at this position. With no first round pick and a weak corner class, it is best the Browns wait for a veteran to get cut because he is too pricey or trades a late pick for the same type of veteran. This position will be addressed, especially after Briean Boddy-Calhoun was let go.
