These are three positions that could carry the team in 2021.
We talked about the three position groups that may struggle in 2021, so let’s take a lot at the three position groups that could carry the Browns in 2021. Like with the other list, this is speculative. We’re using our best critical thinking hats to get to the conclusion but at the end of it and after everything’s been considered; we have to remember it’s June.
No one has played any real football yet. It’s very possible the best player on the team is the punter. It’s also possible that Baker Mayfield breaks every regular-season record in history. It’s all up in the air. There are no guarantees.
That said, with the way things look currently, we can take our best guess as to what positions may stand out in 2021. There’s always a position group that stands out. Always. For instance, in 2020 the Browns had the running backs, the offensive line and one could argue the quarterbacks.
Is that going to be the case this time around? Well, possibly. No one here is claiming to see the future. It’s all educated guesses, obviously. We’re just using the logic and facts that we have to try and see what the tea leaves say, so to speak. Things could obviously happen, like injuries or declining play. That’s always a possibility. If you want to ignore the reality of the sport these men play, fine, but you’re only doing yourself a disservice.
So yes, any one of these three categories could be awful in 2021, they could also be fantastic. Until that first whistle blows, we’re all just guessing. So let’s find out who is up first.
