David Njoku, TE
If there was ever a game David Njoku could’ve been a safety valve for Tyrod Taylor, this was it.
Instead, the 2017 first-round pick was targeted seven times, catching three balls for 13 yards. He committed two drops in the third quarter. He was even whistled for a false start.
Not the impact you’d expect from someone who’s supposed to be a breakout offensive player.
There will be better days for The Chief, and hopefully, the calendar starts to favor the tight end next Sunday.
The dropsies are something that has plagued the 22-year-old Njoku ever since he entered the league last season.
He did a lot in the preseason to lead a lot of spectators to believe he had found a cure, though.
He left the game after injuring what appeared to be his ankle following his lone reception, which went for 8 yards.
Njoku had six catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns in the three preseason games he started. As a rookie, Njoku had 32 catches for 386 yards and four scores.
Cleveland drafted him 29th in the 2017 NFL Draft.
