5 Cleveland Browns Who Stood Out At Minicamp

5 of 5

If Duke Johnson didn’t impress, that would be the bigger storyline. Minicamp is where running back stars are born. There’s no pads and no tackling. Speed is the attribute that stands out the most, and that favors the former University of Miami rusher.

Johnson is creating excitement because he can catch passes out of the backfield. In a 7-on-7 drill, he ran a 20-yard sideline route before hauling in a pass from Johnny Manziel.

He may also be a factor in the return game, as coach Chris Tabor said Johnson is “in the mix” to be the kick returner, and that he’s developing as punt returner.

There are some out there who believe that Johnson is a three-down back, and it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him starting in Week 1. The Browns are going to be a run-heavy offense, and Johnson could be one of the surprises of the NFL season.
