28. Cleveland Browns (28)
It’s safe to say that no team has dealt with more trouble trying to figure out their situation at quarterback over the years than the Cleveland Browns, and seeing them have multiple options to choose from in preseason was completely unexpected. But after making the decision to move on from Brock Osweiler, the Browns decided to give DeShone Kizer a chance to prove himself as a rookie, and even though he didn’t have the strongest of performances against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the quarterback still showed potential.
Keep in mind the Steelers’ defense is never an easy unit to square off against, and Kizer should feel somewhat proud for helping Cleveland keep it close after the team only lost by three points to their division rivals. Overall, Kizer was decent for the most part after completing 20 of 30 passes for 222 yards with a touchdown and interception, but there’s obviously room for improvement moving forward.
Not to mention, it should also be noted that Kizer managed to find the end zone on his own thanks to his legs. Unfortunately, the rookie will have another tough performance next weekend on the road when Kizer faces one of the top defenses from a year ago in the Baltimore Ravens.
