This is the 51st installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. A new player will be previewed every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.
#94- Carl Davis– DT- Iowa
I call this guy Carl “Jr.” Davis because he is beefy and fries every offensive lineman he comes across. The big defensive tackle clogs up running lanes like a Triple Thickburger clogs arteries. However, unlike the Carl’s Jr. restaurant, Carl Davis stops the runs.
Davis only played in five games with the Browns last season, recording one tackle. In fact, he has only seen action in 33 games in four NFL seasons. The former 3rd round draft pick spent his first three years with the Baltimore Ravens before being waived and signed by Cleveland.
I feel like a broken record writing about the potential of the Browns defensive line. John Dorsey took a solid unit with Myles Garrett and Larry Ogunjobi and added two pro-bowlers in Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon. Davis will be competing with a host of other defensive tackles to grab one of the Browns coveted rotational spots on their roster. His familiarity with the team may give him an advantage over some of the new faces in Berea.
