Browns' Corey Coleman: Projected No. 1 wideout
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coleman could quickly earn the Browns' No. 1 wideout position this season, Cleveland.com reports.

Coleman was the first wide receiver selected in last month's draft, addressing a glaring need on the Browns' roster as someone that projects as a future No. 1 wideout. Although head coach Hue Jackson pointed out Coleman's room for improvement in his conditioning during rookie camp, the former Baylor standout is a dynamic athlete and could become a game-breaking target in Cleveland's passing game once acclimated. Early impressions from the Browns' workouts echo that sentiment, thus making Coleman an intriguing fantasy option, particularly in dynasty formats.

Browns' Taylor Gabriel: Witnessed in walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel is dealing with a lower left leg injury and was seen sporting a walking boot during the Browns' OTAs, The Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak reports.

Gabriel was known to be dealing with an injury this offseason, though it was assumed to be related to the fractured orbital he suffered in Week 17 versus Pittsburgh. Now, his foot appears to be the reason he can't practice. As was the case when Gabriel was assumed to be dealing with an eye injury, the Browns' lack of concern suggests this mysterious foot injury isn't a big deal either. However, his lack of production since joining a desolate receiving corps, coupled with how the Browns selected five receivers in the first five rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft (or one less than the entire NFC), paints Gabriel as a borderline candidate to crack the 53-man roster come August.

Browns' Taylor Gabriel: Kept out of OTA practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gabriel was held out of the Browns' first two OTA practices, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

There wasn't a reason cited for Gabriel's lack of participation in practice, but the fractured orbital he suffered in Week 17 against the Steelers could have something to do with it. Despite not fully partaking in the session, the lack of concern from the team and the fact that he was able to work out on the side indicates that whatever is keeping him out isn't all too serious. It's expected that he'll slot in as one of the team's fringe receivers when he returns, a comparable role to his first two seasons, which saw him total 64 receptions for 862 yards and a touchdown.

Browns' Robert Griffin: Taking first-team snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin has consistently been taking first-team snaps at OTAs, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Although Griffin is the clear favorite to win a competition against Josh McCown and third-round rookie Cody Kessler, the battle will likely continue throughout training camp and the preseason. Griffin is the only one of the trio possessing long-term upside, but McCown was actually decent when healthy last season, completing 63.7 percent of his passes for 7.2 yards per attempt, with 12 touchdowns and just four interceptions in eight games (all starts). Granted, Cleveland won just one of those eight games, needing overtime to do so.

Browns' Joe Haden: Vows to be ready come Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Haden (ankle) pledges that he is "not missing any games" this upcoming season, Nate Ulrich of the Beacon Journal reports.

Most notably, Haden is officially out of the walking boot he wore for the better part of two months since undergoing ankle surgery in March. Although this promise from Haden himself is indeed encouraging, players are oftentimes prone to overestimating their own health. In entirety, Haden admitted: "I don't really know about training camp. That's the goal, try to get back, but I just know for sure that my whole thing is I'm not missing any games." At least Haden has time on his side. Training camp doesn't start until late July, and the inaugural tilt of the Browns' 2016 campaign isn't until Sept. 11, so it isn't too far-fetched to expect Haden to be ready for Week 1, even if he isn't able to participate fully in training camp. Nonetheless, the status of this Pro Bowl cornerback will be monitored closely as the season nears.
