3. Austin Hooper Will Help Turn Baker Mayfield Around

Finding a legitimate tight end threat was a priority for the Browns this offseason. Baker Mayfield struggled mightily in 2019, but Austin Hooper will be the kind of security blanket that he needed last year.

Hooper will be able to make plays over the middle and can also be a vertical threat. He is a big body and will also help take pressure off of Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. While he is a tight end, Hooper plays more like a wide receiver.

Mayfield is going to love using his new weapon. Hooper and Mayfield are going to put up big numbers alongside each other.
