|Cleveland Browns |
The Browns filled some holes this offseason, but still seems a ways away from contending. Their quarterback situation remains a bit of a concern and the defense is far from shutdown. They'll win more games in 2012 but still aren't a playoff contender just yet. Having Trent Richardson carry the load offensively is a big plus for the offense, though.
Greg Little, WR. Little flashed some good things his rookie season but was a little inconsistent, which wasn't a surprise considering his quarterback play and being a rookie. Having better quarterback play and a year under his belt should be a big lift for Little. He will be the top receiver in this offense and get plenty of chances to stretch the field, using his top speed. It wouldn't surprise to see Little hit the 1,000-yard mark.
Ben Watson, TE. Watson just keeps chugging along but missed some time late last season with injury, which hurt his stats. He still produced pretty well when playing but his numbers went down after his big 2010. He is 31 years old and has just two seasons with 500-plus yards. He'll have the occasional big game but don't overvalue him come draft day. He is more backup material than anything. Plus, look for Evan Moore to get more playing time at tight end for the Browns.

||Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden opened up this week at the team's offseason team activities as the starter, with QB Jason Campbell relegated to second-team duties.

||Although Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell will receive a chance to compete for the team's starting quarterback job, QB Brandon Weeden will most likely start in Week 1. The only way Weeden doesn't is if he struggles in training camp and the preseason. He has the strong arm that should mesh well in an offense run by head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner.|

||Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell will be given a legitimate shot to beat out QB Brandon Weeden for the starting quarterback job, according to league sources. 'I've been pleased with Jason (Campbell) and the role he's taken on being there,' head coach Rob Chudzinski said. 'Brandon is getting the reps with the first team and working with the first group. A lot of this will remain to be seen when we get into pads and we get into real football instead of the football where you around around in shorts on air.'|
