Cleveland Browns' 2020 offense depth chart post-NFL Draft

The Cleveland Browns bolstered their offensive depth and talent throughout the 2020 NFL Draft.

A look at the Cleveland Browns' projected offensive depth chart following the 2020 NFL Draft:

Quarterback

  1. Baker Mayfield
  2. Case Keenum
  3. Garrett Gilbert

Baker Mayfield returns as the Browns' starter, with veteran Case Keenum providing both capable injury insurance and tutelage. Undrafted free agent Kevin Davidson could provide competition to Garrett Gilbert, although Cleveland may ultimately opt to only carry two quarterbacks on its roster.

Running back

  1. Nick Chubb
  2. Kareem Hunt
  3. Dontrell Hilliard

After signing his restricted free agent tender, Kareem Hunt returns to give the Browns arguably the league's top running back duo with Nick Chubb. Dontrell Hilliard's experience and special teams skills should give him the edge in rounding out Cleveland's running backs room.

Fullback

  1. Andy Janovich

The fullback makes its return to the Browns offense with the offseason acquisition of Andy Janovich. While he'll primarily be used as a blocker, the former Denver Bronco also possesses rushing and receiving ability. 

Wide receiver

  1. Odell Beckham Jr.
  2. Donovan Peoples-Jones
  3. KhaDarel Hodge

Wide receiver

  1. Jarvis Landry
  2. Damion Ratley
  3. Taywan Taylor

New head coach Kevin Stefanski favors two-wide receiver sets, but the Browns lack proven NFL wideouts behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry -- each of whom are coming off offseason surgery. Donovan Peoples-Jones possesses plenty of upside and the potential to contribute more than your standard sixth-round pick.

Tight end

  1. Austin Hooper
  2. David Njoku
  3. Harrison Bryant
  4. Stephen Carlson

Even after signing Austin Hooper to what was the biggest contract for a tight end, the Browns picked up David Njoku's fifth-year option and used a fourth-round pick on John Mackey Award winner Harrison Bryant. Stefanski's history with two-tight end sets make it likely the team will carry four players at the position, with Stephen Carlson and Pharaoh Brown currently slated to battle for the No. 4 spot.

Left tackle

  1. Jedrick Wills Jr.
  2. Chris Hubbard

Left guard

  1. Joel Bitonio
  2. Drew Forbes

Center

  1. J.C. Tretter
  2. Evan Brown

Right guard

  1. Wyatt Teller
  2. Nick Harris

Right tackle

  1. Jack Conklin
  2. Kendall Lamm

New general manager Andrew Berry revamped his team's tackle situation by signing free agent Jack Conklin and using the No. 10 pick in the draft on Jedrick Wills Jr. Depth at tackle remains a concern, although former starter Chris Hubbard possesses experience playing on both sides of the line.

The Browns like fifth-round pick Nick Harris enough that they said they'll let him compete with J.C. Tretter for the team's starting center spot, but the Washington product may have a better chance to start at right guard. Depending on how quickly Wills and Harris adapt to the pro game, overall depth may be the only concern for an otherwise formidable starting front five.
