6. Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku

I go out on a limb for Njoku recently and this is what happens? Two drops, one of which would’ve been a touchdown?

Thankfully, Austin Hooper saved that drive, but Njoku was at it again later, with another drop.

The should’ve-been touchdown was at least knocked out by a defender, but either way, drops have long been an issue with the former first-round pick.

He seemed to correct things recently, but fell back into old habits in defeat. Throughout his career, he’s had a knack for catching passes that come with a high degree of difficulty, but the passes right in-between the numbers can be challenging.

It looked like the Browns were trying to make him a part of the game plan early, with Njoku lining up in the slot, wide. Needless to say, that seed didn’t bare any fruit.

Like Harrison, Njoku can be a free agent at season’s end. I don’t believe the Browns will bring him back, but I I wouldn’t be surprised either, if they did.
