After yesterday’s practice, Browns Head Coach Rob Chudzinski spoke on many different topics, focusing first on injured offensive lineman Ryan Miller. He did, however, mention running back Dion Lewis, a newcomer in the offseason via a trade with Philadelphia. “I think I’m just learning. He’s a guy that we haven’t seen a lot. Running backs really tend to show more when the pads come on. You see their running skills and the blocking schemes develop a little bit better. Like you saw today, with pads on it’s a lot different. We will continue to look at him as well as all of those guys. We will put them in situations so they can show what they can do.” Lewis was a fifth-round pick in 2011 out of Pittsburgh, and in two previous seasons with the Eagles, he has carried 36 times for 171 yards (4.75 yards per carrier). He was traded for linebacker Emmanuel Acho in the offseason. Chudzinski added on the use of the screen game: “It was something that was in our installation today. After a few days, we get those guys rushing up the field so much. Screens have always been something that Norv has really excelled, teams that Norv has coached. I have been fortunate to be around Norv and learn a thing or two about screens.” Lewis will be in the mix with Montario Hardesty, Chris Ogbonnaya, and Brandon Jackson behind Trent Richardson on the running back depth chart.
