What we still have to find out
Can Nick Harris play at the NFL level
Nick Harris was a fifth-round pick and the odds he gets to the end of his rookie contract, historically, aren’t in his favor. That’s the life of a late-round pick. Usually, they don’t turn into anything. Yet, a lot of the Browns’ fanbase seem very high on Harris, despite no one else thinking so. PFF thought he was putrid in his rookie year, and his first game as a starter in the preseason didn’t exactly make anyone think different. Sure, he didn’t really let anyone pass him, but he also didn’t really move anyone either. Is this the best he’ll ever be?
Who will be starters at defensive tackle?
This one is going to be interesting simply because Sheldon Day played like a madman. Earlier in training camp, a report came out that Day was working alongside Andrew Billings and Malik Jackson as the first team, and Day really showed why that was. He had two tackles, and a sack during his limited time on the field against the Jaguars, and that was without Myles Garrett or Jadeveon Clowney playing any downs to help pull attention. Day might make it hard for the Browns to not start him.
Is this what to expect from Richard LeCounte III and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah
Richard LeCounte III and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah had a great preseason game against the Jaguars’ second and third-teamers. Both men are high on a lot of people’s lists and many think that the Browns’ got steals in both picks. It’s very possible that the Jaguars game was just a taste of what is to come from both men. LeCounte had an interception and nearly had a second, while Owusu-Koramoah had eight tackles, three for a loss and a sack. They played with such a frenetic pace that fans are hopeful their play from Saturday is the norm and not the exception.
