Ranking members of the 2018 Cleveland Browns from the top of the roster, all the way to the bottom. The first name is easy, but who follows Baker Mayfield?

The Cleveland Browns put a wrap on the 2018 season, reaching new heights behind a new roster, the first one put together by general manager John Dorsey in his first full season on the job.

OK, so the Browns went 7-8-1. That’s still not a winning record and the team finished third in the AFC North, but when you consider this franchise was 1-31 in the two years prior to this one, you’ll take what you can get.

Plus, the organization ridded itself of some of the ugly history stinking up the franchise.

Some milestones include the Browns’ first three-game win streak since 2014, in addition to the tranche’s first road victory since 2015.

And because this is the Factory of Sadness, why not throw in the fact that the Browns finished over .500 in the AFC North since the division’s inception in 2002. Before that, the Browns resumed playing in the AFC Central in 1999 (they still didn’t have an above .500 record in the division).

So some demons were exercised, the coach was fired and the Browns now look like one of the “it” teams to watch in 2019, as media members speculate on how many primetime games the organization will get next season.

After seeing the names on this list, you’ll see why there’s excitement. The Browns have some really good players who should continue to improve.

Hopefully some tough lessons learned this season will lead to more wins and a possible playoff berth in 2019.

Here’s how the Browns’ players ranked from 1-55 during the 2018 campaign.
