Cleveland Browns: 3 Breakout Candidates for the 2018 NFL Season

Every season in the NFL a team has different players who come out of nowhere to make significant contributions. The Cleveland Browns are trying to put their winless 2017 season behind them and ride the momentum built this offseason. The team hired general manager John Dorsey at the end of last season. Dorsey’s first task… flip the losing Browns culture upside down.

Dorsey did just that bringing in a new offensive coordinator (Todd Haley), trading for the steady quarterback play of Tyrod Taylor, and acquiring talented players like Jarvis Landy, Damarious Randall, Carlos Hyde, Mychal Kendricks, Baker Mayfield, Denzel Ward, and Antonio Callaway. That infusion of talent will certainly create competition the Browns have been desperately seeking over the last few seasons.

These new players, coaches, and the HBO TV series Hard Knocks are generating a buzz around the team. If the Browns expect to take a step toward becoming competitive in their division, they will need multiple players to step up on each side of the ball.

Let’s take a look at some potential breakout players for the 2018 Cleveland Browns.
