Players 16-20

16. Antonio Callaway: The rookie turned in a stellar rookie season, considering he hadn’t played football since the 2016 season. The Browns gambled a fourth-round pick on him and Callaway produced 43 catches for 586 yards and five touchdowns.

How he’ll factor in during the upcoming season remains fascinating because both he and OBJ possess the ability to stretch the field.

Callaway should also get the opportunity to be the main punt returner, something that probably should’ve happened earlier last season.

17. Greedy Williams: Projected by many to be a first-round pick, Williams fell to the Browns in the second-round, and by all accounts, the LSU product is looking like a player who could push for a starting corner spot. Even if he doesn’t bounce Mitchell, there will be plenty of opportunities for Williams to get on the field as the pass-happy NFL runs out three-receiver sets.

18. Greg Robinson: The left tackle salvaged his career in 2018, taking over for the now-departed Desmond Harrison halfway through the season. Mayfield looked a lot softer dropping back to pass when Robinson was on the field. Some thought an extension was coming for the former No. 2 overall pick, however, he ended up signing a one-year “prove it deal.”

19. Terrance Mitchell: Had originally put T.J. Carrie ahead of Mitchell in the final season rankings, but thinking back, that was probably a mistake. Mitchell was very good before getting injured in Week 3 against the Jets. He ended up only play eight games, starting seven.

20. Rashard Higgins: Hollywood developed a nice rapport with Mayfield and has established himself as a solid receiver. He enters 2019 as the Browns’ fourth receiver.
