Cleveland’s new look O-line could be key to developing their backfield


  • Every replacement on the Cleveland Browns offensive line will bring an improvement in terms of pass blocking efficiency if they can repeat their numbers from 2016.
  • New C Kevin Zeitler, had the fifth best of 77 offensive guards in pass blocking efficiency (PBE) last season at 97.7.
  • Cleveland ranked 20th of 32 last year in PBE as a team. The Browns had the ninth most QB pressures allowed last year.
  • Four of their five positions are locked down, with the only question remaining who will start at right tackle, with Shon Coleman and Cam Erving the two most likely candidates to fill that role.
