Rey Maualuga- Recently named the starter at SLB, should be a BIG contributor from the get go.
Micheal Johnson- Should get plenty of chances to rush the passer and with the improved interior pass rush, He could make some noise this season.
Bernard Scott- Been very impressive this preseason, worked his way to the #2 RB slot. May not get much love at first but if Benson struggles he should get an opportunity. Could make waves from the beginning in the passing game though.
Chase Coffman- While he has struggled thus far as a blocker, I would not be surprised to see him get some opportunities to do what he does best: catch the football. He is our ONLY legitimate receiving threat at TE with Ben Utecht being placed on IR.
You might be able to say at the end of the year that the Browns 6th round class did more than the 2nd round class.
James Davis, Coye Francies, Kaluka Maiava vs. Mohammad Massoquoi, Brian Robiskie, David Veikune
Maiava was a 4th round pick. Our 6th round pick, Don Carey, was scooped by Jacksonville and then put on their IR.
David Veikune is a long term project by virtue of the fact that Mangini is having him learn both ILB and OLB, so it remains to be seen how much he will contribute. I personally think he's going to push Barton for time as the season goes on in the middle. He should also see time as a pass rusher.
Massaquoi won the battle between he and Robiskie for now, but who knows how much he will play since Cribbs and Furrey appear to be ahead of him on the depth chart. Should be interesting. I hope the Browns run 4 WR sets because they have a talented WR group
