State of the Franchise: Pending

The Cleveland Browns pass defense is air tight so they addressed their run defense in the first round.Then in the second round, they went ahead and tightened up their pass protection. But quarterback Josh McCown is not the will answer so it’s up to 2014 first-round pick Johnny Manziel to mature.
