7. Secondary projections
Projected 2018 secondary depth chart
CB1 – Denzel Ward, Howard Wilson
SCB – T.J. Carrie, Briean Boddy-Calhoun
FS – Damarious Randall, Briean Boddy-Calhoun
There is still room for one more DB on the roster. Perhaps rookie Simeon Thomas takes that spot, although he is a likely practice squad candidate. 2017 holdovers Mike Jordan and Derron Smith are also options.
No matter how the depth chart ends up, the secondary will be much improved this coming season.
That’s great news for the defensive line, which should get more sacks due to receivers being covered for longer. If the Browns take a step forward this year, the new-look secondary will be a big reason why.
