Cleveland Browns Depth Chart 2023 includes Deshaun Watson, Amari Cooper, Nick Chubb, Myles Garrett, Denzel Ward, ZaDarius Smith and more.

Joshua Dobbs and Dorian Thompson-Robinson will be ready if needed. Amari Cooper, Elijah Moore, and Cedric Tillman will be looking to obliterate the wide plays and leave the opponent on the ground.

Chubb will again look to break his record and run with all supersonic speed and agility to make it to the opponent's end zone. Jerome Ford and Hassan Hall will be the backup ready to enter the game.

Likewise, the defense sees a significant improvement by hiring former Titans' Senior defensive assistant, Jim Schwartz.

The acquisition of Juan Thornhill, Mike Ford, Mohamoud Diabate, and several new capable defensive studs is ready to trouble the opposing offense.

Cleveland Browns Quarterback Depth 2023

Cleveland Browns QB depth chart for 2023 season are:

  • Deshaun Watson
  • Joshua Dobbs
  • Dorian Thompson-Robinson (DTR)
  • Kellen Mond

Watson is the obvious starter for the 2023-24 season after missing half of the games in 2022 following suspension. One of the most expensive trades in NFL history, a lot of Browns' success will be banking on Watson's performances, who is looking to bounce back after missing two seasons of football.

If Deshaun can reiterate his pro bowl career in Houston, the Browns are a contender not only in The AFC North but for the divisional game and beyond.

Just behind him, waiting in the line, will be Joshua Dobbs, who will be looking to showcase his talent off in the air and on the ground for his second stint in Cleveland. Dobbs impressed a few souls during his mesmerizing display in a game for the Titans last year.

Then comes former Vikings Kellen Mond, and newly drafted UCLA alumni, and college record-breaker Dorian Thompson-Robinson who goes by DTR. More like a future project for the franchise that has failed many quarterbacks over the years.

Cleveland Browns Wide Receivers Depth Chart

Cleveland Browns WR depth chart for 2023 season is:

  • Ra'Shaun Henry
  • Cedric Tillman
  • Jaelon Darden
  • Elijah Moore
  • Marquise Goodwin
  • Michael Woods II
  • David Bell
  • Jakeem Grant
  • Amari Cooper
  • Donovan Peoples-Jones
  • Mike Harley Jr.
  • Daylen Baldwin
  • Anthony Schwartz

Amari Cooper is the sure starter for the upcoming campaign, backed by his nine touchdowns and 78 receptions in the past year. With zero fumbles and lost balls, he will be the key to gaining yards and scoring points.

Elijah Moore and Donovan Peoples-Jones are second in line for the WR position. The lack of experience may cause them some trouble, but the potential they contain can easily overpower the nerves and make them big names in the league.

Newly drafted Cedric Tillman, David Bell, Marquise Goodwin, and the remaining names will be used based on snaps and play.

Cleveland Browns RB Roster

Cleveland Browns running backs depth chart for 2023 season are:

  • Nick Chubb
  • Jerome Ford
  • Demetric Felton Jr.
  • John Kelly Jr.
  • Nate McCrary
  • Hassan Hall

RB Nick Chubb scored the most TD for the franchise in 2022

Nick Chubb was the leading man for the group, with 12 touchdowns in the last year. He recorded his best performance of 302 attempts for 1,525 rushing yards. On top of that, he had 27 receptions for 239 yards.

Jerome Ford was the 156th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Having missed the entire 2022 campaign due to an ankle injury, he is a capable back testament to his 2021 record of 1,319 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns for the Bearcats.

RB coach Stump Mitchell also has Hassan Hall, Nate McCrary, John Kelly Jr., and Demetric Felton Jr. as backups. Mitchell needs to work with these athletes and make them game ready.

Cleveland Browns TE Depth Chart 2023

Cleveland Browns tight ends depth chart for 2023 season are:

  • David Njoku
  • Jordan Akins
  • Harrison Bryant
  • Zaire Mitchell-Paden
  • Thomas Greaney
  • Hunter Thedford

After signing a big contract, David Njoku will be the first choice in the upcoming season. Rightly so, he featured in all fourteen fixtures and received his career best of 58 catches, along with 4 touchdowns.

Harrison Bryant will enter his last year from the contract and need to find his footing. Including Jordan Akins as a free agent puts him straight as the No. 3 TE for the team.

Thomas Greaney, Hunter Thedford, and Zaire Mitchell-Paden are the rookie signings. All of them can display their case in the offseason practice and campaigns to be considered for a spot in the active roster.

Cleveland Browns Offensive Line Roster 2023

Cleveland Browns offensive lineman depth chart for 2023 season are:

  • Jedrick Wills Jr. - LT
  • Jack Conklin - RT
  • Joel Bitonio - LG
  • Wyatt Teller - RG
  • Nick Harris - C
  • Dawand Jones - RT
  • Colby Gossett - LG
  • Wes Martin - LG
  • Dawson Deaton - LG
  • Luke Wypler - C
  • Ethan Pocic - C
  • James Hudson III - RT
  • Tyrone Wheatley Jr. - RT
  • Drew Forbes - RG
  • Michael Dunn - LG

One of the best groups in the entire NFL, the Browns O-line led by all-time great Bill Callahan had 2 pro bowlers last season in Joel Bitonio and Wyatt Teller. LIkewise, Conklin is a former All-pro tackle.

New additions from Ohio State, Dawand and Wypler are two big-body propects who need sharpening and who else to do so than Callahan and the crew?

Cleveland Browns Defense Roster 2023

Cleveland Browns defense roster depth chart for 2023 season includes Defensive End Myles Garrett, Cornerback Denzel Ward, and Safety Juan Thornhill.

The new defensive coordinator for the Browns is Jim Schwartz replacing confused Joe Woods last year. His main priority will be overturning their fortune and keeping the opponents away from their end zone.

DE Myles Garrett will look to improve on his 16.0 sack attempts from the last outing. Grant Delpit and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah need to step up a notch and aid Garrett in creating the space and going for the opponent's Quarterback.

Returning from injury will be captain and leader Anthony Walker Jr, who was crucial in guiding JOK in his rookie year. The leadership lacking in 2022 can be filled in every way possible.

Adding Safety Juan Thornhill from the Kansas City Chiefs provides more flexibility to their defensive tactic. The signing of Rodney McLeod adds experience and intensity to the group.

Denzel Ward as always, was impressive, with 42 solo tackles and three interceptions in the 2022 campaign. Caleb Biggers and Mike Ford will have to prove their worth as a CB for the team.

The trade deal of Za'Darius Smith from the Minnesota Vikings and the acquisition of Mohamoud Duabate, Jeremiah Martin, Siaki Ika, Ben Stille, Thomas Graham Jr., Trysten Hill, and Maurice Hurst make their defense solid.
