Browns' Myles Garrett: Dealt with ankle injury last season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett said he was only 75 percent healthy during his final year in college due to an ankle injury, according to ESPN.com.

One of the biggest knocks on Garrett coming out of Texas A&M was his lack of effort on certain plays. As it turns out, an ankle injury could have been the main culprit for that. According to the report, Garrett said he lost some explosiveness and wasn't himself. Still, that didn't stop the Browns from making him the first overall pick. The report didn't mention if Garrett's ankle is fully healthy, so that's something to keep an eye on as training camp nears.

Browns' David Njoku: In line to start in 2017?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Gary Barnidge being released shortly after Njoku's arrival, the door is open for Njoku to start right away in 2017.

Njoku joins Seth DeValve, Randall Telfer as the team's only tight ends on the roster and immediately becomes the favorite to dominant snaps in 2017. DeValve caught 10 passes for 127 yards and two scores in 2016, while Telfer finished the year with just two receptions. Those lackluster performances, along with a down year from Barnidge, convinced the Browns to upgrade the position, which they absolutely did with Njoku.

Browns' Caleb Brantley: Slides to Cleveland in the sixth round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns selected Brantley in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 185th overall.

Brantley entered the draft process as a potential Day 2 pick, but an arrest for simple battery charge in late-April caused a precipitous slide down the board. He's an extremely talented interior defensive lineman, but there are also questions about his motor on a play-to-play basis. If Brantley is able to get cleared of his charges and play to his potential, he'll be an absolute steal for a sixth-rounder.

Browns' Cody Kessler: In competition for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kessler, along with the other quarterback's on the roster, will compete for the starting job, according to Cleveland.com.

Even though the Browns took DeShone Kizer in the second round of the draft, head coach Hue Jackson made it clear Kessler is still very much in the conversation to be the team's starting quarterback. In his rookie campaign, Kessler completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,380 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions across parts of nine games. He showed flashes of potential at times, but ball security was an issue. On the flip side, his knowledge of the offense should give him a leg up on the job as training camp begins.

Browns' DeShone Kizer: WIll compete for starting gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Hue Jackson said Friday that Kizer will have a chance to compete for the starting job, according to Cleveland.com.

The second-round draft pick out of Notre Dame joins quarterbacks Cody Kessler, Kevin Hogan and Brock Osweiler on the roster, and it seems each will have a shot to start the season under center. Osweiler and Kessler have the most experience, but neither performed at an especially high level in 2016, giving Kizer a fair chance. As with all rookies, there are many things he needs to improve on to be a successful NFL quarterback, but as of now, his competition is rather weak. However, all of this would change if the Browns finally convince the Patriots to part ways with Jimmy Garoppolo,
