2018 NFL Power Rankings: Brandin Cooks, Ndamukong Suh puts Rams on top

31. Cleveland Browns
Yes, the Cleveland Browns deserve credit for all of the key moves during the offseason, whether it involves acquiring Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins or upgrading at the quarterback position by moving on from DeShone Kizer while replacing him with Tyrod Taylor for the moment. But until the Browns actually go out on the football field, and prove all of these moves will make a huge difference, Hue Jackson’s team is going to have to work their way up on this list.
Cleveland ended up on the wrong side of the history last year by becoming the second team to go an entire season without winning a single game, but at least they can only go up from here. Without question, Taylor is a major upgrade at quarterback over Kizer, but if the Browns were smart, they would take advantage of a talented quarterback class once the end of April arrives.
By having two of the top four picks in the first round, even Cleveland can’t go wrong with finding a quarterback to potentially build the franchise around. Until the Browns find their man at quarterback, the offense is only going to continue holding themselves back from finally hitting a new level.
