The Cleveland Browns depth chart will be of great debate during Hue Jacksons’ first training camp. Predictions are always fun, and usually never accurate, so why not to predict what the team will look like in Week 1?
With camp set to start July 29, here’s my pre training predictions for what the offense will look like when the roster is settled.
During OTAs and mini camp, there was a lot of teeth mashing over Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown and Cody Kessler–at least on talk radio.
Griffin’s accuracy didn’t look sharp. He drew more headlines for throwing the ball away into adjacent neighbor’s yards than he did for anything positive he did on the field.
However, barring injury, Griffin is going to start. He’s Hue Jackson’s hand picked quarterback, and he’s going to get every opportunity to revive his career, because if he can, the Browns will be playoff contenders.
McCown is perfect suited for the No. 2 role. Griffin has an injury history and the Browns would be better off easing in a veteran than they would a third-round draft pick.

The early returns on Kessler are positive, but there’s no need to rush the kid, especially when the Browns already have McCown.
Some fans are trying to draw parallels between Kessler and Russell Wilson, with the thinking being that RGIII will be the next Matt Flynn. If you’ll recall, the Seahawks through a ton of money Flynn’s way, and in his first camp with Seattle, Wilson, a third-round pick, outplayed him–and it wasn’t even close.
The rest is history.
Curb your enthusiasm, though Browns fans. What we saw with Wilson is a once-in-a-generation miracle that unfortunately unfolded in Seattle, and not Cleveland.
Kessler’s a nice prospect, but we don’t need to rush him.
