Pass Rush Improvements
Myles Garrett is an absolute monster. That much is obvious. But even Super Heroes work in teams these days.
Garrett was the most double-teamed edge rusher in the NFL last season, and he still ranked No. 3 in the NFL in pass-rush win rate. The Browns' lack of pass rush presence elsewhere let offenses completely key in on Garrett, and he still wreaked havoc to the tune of his second straight 16-sack season.
But now he'll have the chance to make the leap and could legitimately become a 20-sack guy.
The additions of Dalvin Tomlinson on the inside plus Ogbo Okoronkwo (5.0 sacks, 11 QB hits in 2022) and especially Za'Darius Smith (10.0, 24 QB hits) mean teams will have to balance out their pass protections a little more.
We've all seen how quickly an opposing offense falls apart when trying to use a single blocker on Garrett, and that's about to happen a whole lot more often in 2023.
