Cleveland Browns 2014 Training Camp Primer
I also recommend that you follow us on Twitter @DawgsByNature. Listed below, you can find everyone we recommend following on Twitter throughout training camp, as well as a compilation of our training camp previews.
Fan Perception: Recap of Browns' CB/S Polls
Do you think CB Leon McFadden will make the 53-man roster? Who will start at cornerback opposite Joe Haden in Week 1? If you could only keep one backup safety on the Browns (and the rest would be cut), who would you keep?
Cleveland Browns 53-Man Roster Projection
The Cleveland Browns will hold their first full-squad session of training camp on Saturday, and that means it is time for me to unveil my first 53-man roster projection of the season.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: Safety Preview
Our final training camp preview will focus on the safety position. In order to squeeze all of our previews in before training camp opens to the public on Saturday, our safety preview will not be split up into two parts.
Fan Perception: Recap of Browns' ST Polls
Assuming both stay injury-free, will Billy Cundiff and Spencer Lanning last the entire 2014 season for the Browns? Who should return kickoffs for the Browns in 2014?
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: CB Preview, Part 2
In Part 2 of our training camp preview on cornerbacks, we look at the other three players battling for a roster spot. The level of competition at cornerback shows you just how deep the position is in 2014.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: CB Preview, Part 1
The Cleveland Browns have nine cornerbacks on the roster, and the first six we'll be discussing include Joe Haden, Buster Skrine, Justin Gilbert, Pierre Desir, Isaiah Trufant, and Leon McFadden.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: The Return Game
We already covered kicker and punter, but we still have long snapper, the return game, and coverage units left to cover. Those areas are covered in today's general special teams preview, but the only position that will have a profile is long snapper.
Fan Perception: Recap of Browns' LB Polls
Which OLB will have the most sacks for the Browns in 2014? Assuming Armonty Bryant stays on the DL, who will be the Browns' fourth outside linebacker this year? Who will start alongside Karlos Dansby at ILB in Week 1?
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: ST Preview (K/P)
Today, we begin covering the special teams units on the Cleveland Browns in anticipation for training camp, starting with the kickers and punters. The same guys from last year are returning, and they face very little competition.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: ILB Preview, P2
In Part 2 of our training camp preview on inside linebackers for the Cleveland Browns, we look at a trio of players who all have a pretty decent shot at making the roster, considering the team has decided not to go with UDFA.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: ILB Preview, P1
After covering the outside linebacker, our next training camp preview moves to the inside linebackers. In Part 1, we will cover the players who are in contention for starting roles.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: OLB Preview, P2
Part 2 of our training camp preview on outside linebacker basically asks the question, "who is replacing Quentin Groves in 2014?"
Fan Perception: Recap of Browns' TE Polls
How do you think the reps will be split up among the backup tight ends this year? The Browns have 53 roster spots. How many of them should they use on fullbacks+tight ends combined?
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: OLB Preview, P1
Today, our training camp preview moves to the theme of "Hard Hitting and Klutch Kicks," which will cover the linebackers and special teams units. We'll start with outside linebacker -- in Part 1, we look at the three primary players.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: TE Preview, Part 2
Part 2 of our training camp preview on tight ends looks at the other tight ends on the roster. For the purposes of this preview, we have not included MarQueis Gray or Keavon Milton
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: TE Preview, Part 1
After covering the wide receivers, the next part of our training camp preview series on the Cleveland Browns shifts to the tight end position. In Part 1, we will look at Jordan Cameron, Gary Barnidge, and Jim Dray.
Fan Perception: Recap of Browns' WR Polls
Scenario: Josh Gordon is not available, and the Browns' top three WRs (in no particular order) are Andrew Hawkins, Nate Burleson, and Miles Austin. Who should be the outside receivers, and who should be the slot?
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: WR Preview, Part 3
Part 3 of our training camp preview for the Cleveland Browns wide receivers takes a look at the five undrafted free agents who are on the roster. Will any of them shine enough to warrant a roster spot?
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: WR Preview, Part 2
Part 2 of our training camp preview for the Cleveland Browns wide receivers beings today, featuring some of the receivers who will be competing for the No. 4 or No. 5 WR spots (depending on what happens with WR Josh Gordon).
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: WR Preview, Part 1
Our training camp preview for the Cleveland Browns wide receivers beings today, and it gets a bit tricky to diagnose the position due to the Josh Gordon situation.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: OL Preview, Part 4
Part 4 of our offensive line preview for training camp looks at the remaining three players on the bottom of the depth chart. You can't discount these guys, though, because you never quite know who will shine in the new zone blocking scheme.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: OL Preview, Part 3
Part 3 of our offensive line preview for training camp looks at some of the competition for the backup tackle spots on the team.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: OL Preview, Part 2
In Part 2 of our training camp preview for the Cleveland Browns' offensive line, we are taking a look at the contenders for the starting right guard position.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: OL Preview, Part 1
Our training camp preview for the Cleveland Browns is shifting to the offensive line now. Today's training camp preview looks at the players who are projected to start from left tackle to right tackle.
Fan Perception: Recap of Browns' DL Polls
Who should start at the defensive end position opposite of Desmond Bryant -- should it be Ahtyba Rubin, or somebody else on the depth chart? If Rubin is not a starting DE this year, who would you like to see start in his place?
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: DL Preview, Part 3
In Part 2 of our training camp preview on the Cleveland Browns' defensive line, we looked at the team's primary backups on the defensive line. Today, we look at the remaining players on the back end of the roster on the defensive line.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: DL Preview, Part 2
Today, we look at the players who will be the primary backups to the starting defensive line of the Cleveland Browns. Just like the starting unit, there aren't any new faces in today's training camp preview.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp: DL Preview, Part 1
The team did not sign or draft anybody on the defensive line, which means things will remain pretty much the same...although a new head coach could mean starting opportunities for somebody like Billy Winn.
Fan Perception: Recap of Browns' RB Polls
In each of our training camp previews, we conduct a poll at the end of the post. Here is a summary of each of those polls for the running back/fullback position.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp 2014: FB Preview
After covering the running backs, we finish up the backfield with a look at the players competing for the fullback position heading into training camp for the Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns Training Camp 2014: RB Preview II
Whether the Browns keep three or four running backs, I could easily see any combination of the four running backs in today's preview making the roster. Let's run through the candidates.
Cleveland Browns Training Camp 2014: RB Preview
Cleveland had very little depth at running back in 2013, which is why they re-tooled the position during the 2014 offseason. Today's training camp preview of the running back position takes a look at veteran Ben Tate and rookie Terrance West.
Browns Training Camp 2014: QB Preview, Part II
Part 1 of our training camp preview for the quarterback position focused on the competition between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel. Today's preview focuses on the competition for the No. 3 role between Tyler Thigpen and Connor Shaw.
DBN Members-Only Poll: Manziel or Hoyer?
The question is, "Who do you WANT to be the Browns' starting quarterback heading into Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers?" In the comments section below, respond with either "Brian Hoyer" or "Johnny Manziel."
