The Coaching Staff
The 2017 Cleveland Browns are going to emphasis the running game. Last season they were a run heavy team during the first handful of weeks, until injuries on the offensive line and an inconsistent defense forced them to change their strategy.
Duke Johnson as a runner is underused there is no doubt about it. But, Duke Johnson the pass catcher is where he shows how valuable he is to this team. In his first two seasons, Johnson has 114 catches for over 1000 yards. In 2015, his rookie season, he was second in catches by rookies. The guy who was first? Amari Cooper of the Raiders. Last season, Johnson was second on the team with 53 catches for 514 yards and fans should expect the same type of season this year. Especially since, it was reported that Johnson could see some time as the slot receiver in certain formations in Hue Jackson's offense.
