What is the Browns' Strength in 2013?

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

As part of a two-part sponsored series, we are asking fans to vote on the positional group that they feel is the strongest on the Cleveland Browns at this point in time. In a couple of weeks, we will look back on the results of this poll, and then evaluate whether that position still appears to be the strength of the team.

I'm not going to list every positional grouping in the poll; for example, we know that cornerback, safety, tight end, and special teams aren't projected to be top-of-the-line in quality, either for not having individual stars or not having enough proven depth. I am also leaving quarterback off the list, because one player at a position doesn't fit in well in a poll. I am including the following choices:

  • Running Back: People think Trent Richardson is a beast, and that Dion Lewis can electrify as a second back.
  • Wide Receiver: Everything has gone well in camp, and people have defined roles from top-to-bottom of the depth chart.
  • Offensive Line: The guard position came into question early in camp, but there is a lot of Pro Bowl caliber talent across this line.
  • Defensive Line: There is no questioning this is the deepest unit on the team, but is the talent enough to gain favor over another position?
  • Outside Linebacker: The Browns addressed this position heavily in the offseason, paying a lot of money for Paul Kruger, drafting Barkevious Mingo, signing Quentin Groves, and moving Jabaal Sheard to the outside. Is it good enough to be the immediate strength of the team?

Vote in the poll below, and let us know in the comments section what you voted for and why!
