The Cleveland Browns added 12 picks in the recent NFL Draft. Those additions are added to a roster full of young talent for the Browns. While the Browns have had turnover on top of turnover but if Ray Farmer and Mike Pettine are able to stick around for a few years they have brought in, or retained, a solid foundation of players 26 years old and younger.
While the Browns have added a few veterans over the last two season, Karlos Dansby, Donte Whitner, Tramon Williams, Randy Starks, Dwayne Bowe, Brian Hartline, Josh McCown and others, the core of the team is this group of young players. Some may not even make the team because of the depth currently on the roster.
For Cleveland fans who often struggle to find any reason for optimism ("Doesn't matter we don't have a QB" and "We NEED a #1 WR no matter what Farmer and Pettine say.") we hope this list helps. We will take a look at both sides of the ball, youngest to oldest, and their role on the team this year and their upside in the future.
The Browns want to build around their defense, "Build a Bully", so that is where we will start:
