This is the 77th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one.

#85- David Njoku– TE- Miami

When I first heard that the Browns drafted the Miami tight end, my nerd brain instantly thought of Goku from Dragon Ball Z. I didn’t even really watch that show, but I knew enough to know Goku was awesome and so is David Njoku. He has had a decent first couple of seasons with Cleveland, but this year I am expecting him to go full on supersaiyan.

Njoku’s production improved greatly from year one to his sophomore season. He had 32 catches for 386 yards as a rookie and upped those numbers to 56 receptions for 639 yards in 2018. The former Miami Hurricane’s game play instantly got better once Baker Mayfield was put in the starting quarterback position. Njoku had over 50 yards receiving in eight of the 13 games that Mayfield started.

The Browns offense as a whole has a ton of threats, especially after the additions of Odell Beckham, Jr. and Kareem Hunt. Those new weapons, coupled with another year of seasoning for Mayfield should lead to an explosive offense this year. With so much focus on the receivers and running backs Njoku could be the biggest beneficiary. Year three is typically the time that tight ends have their coming out season, so it’s reasonable to believe that Njoku could have a monster season with the Browns this year.
