2. Trevon Coley, DL

Trevon Coley‘s been a Brown for two years now and has tallied 2.5 sacks and 11 tackles for a loss in his time here, which has also included 29 starts.

He signed with the Redskins following the 2016 NFL Draft before finding his way to the Browns.

Pro Football Focus wasn’t kind to Coley, giving him a rating of 50.4, which is considered below average.

It’s one thing to look at words typed during the offseason, it’s another to see what transpires during Training Camp, but the Browns reportedly like defensive lineman Daniel Ekuale.

Entering Training Camp, the Browns front-four looks strong, bolstered by  ends Myles Garrett Olivier Vernon, Sheldon Richardson and Larry Ogunjobi.

However, after that, depth falls off, which is why the Browns went hard after defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

Coley carries a cap hit of $645,000, so if he’s outplayed in camp, it wouldn’t be all that big of a financial hit for the Browns to take should they cut him.

The Browns have been watching Ekuale for a while now, as he spent weeks 1-13 of the 2018 season on Cleveland’s practice squad.

The Washington State product is listed as 6-foot-3, 300 pounds.

Coley and Ekuale will compete with Carl Davis, Brian Price and Devaroe Lawrence for a spot on the defensive interior.
