Cleveland Browns: 2013 Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

Last week: 30 The Browns’ offensive line was supposed to be one of the better offensive lines in the NFL, but the right side has gotten completely blown up through the first 2 games.

Cleveland’s Mitchell Schwartz had a tough time trying to stop DE Cameron Wake, who got to Brandon Weeden...

The Browns used the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft on Brandon Weeden, but it was incumbent starter Colt McCoy getting all the 1st team snaps when OTAs opened for the Browns today.

One area the Browns need to improve in free agency- the offensive line

As the clock strikes 4pm and the new NFL year begins (and with it free agency) the Browns could potentially lose four more offensive linemen. OT Tony Pashos was released yesterday. That would be five linemen, who combined to start 16 games for the Browns last season, and had 41 game appearances between them. And the truth is, with one key signing, and perhaps a pick mid-draft, the...
