Daily Cleveland Browns Roster Breakdown: Dontrell Hilliard

Dontrell Hilliard looks to be another weapon on an already stacked Browns offense.

This is the 14th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released 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.

#25- Dontrell Hilliard– RB- Tulane

I call him Dontrell “Willis” Hilliard because he showed last year that when he throws a ball he has a funky delivery and isn’t always accurate. That wobbly, off-target throw that Freddie Kitchens let Hilliard make was actually a great homage to all of the quarterbacks who have donned the Brown and Orange since the return of the team in 1999. Even though we didn’t need to see it, it helped show the fans why Baker is so special.

Hilliard played in 11 games for the Browns as a rookie last season. The young running back did not get any carries but did record 9 receptions (on 10 targets) and had 11 kick returns.  

On paper, the Browns offense appears to be one of the more skilled units in the NFL. The running back position is particularly deep in Cleveland this season. The Browns already had a solid stable of backs before adding Kareem Hunt to the mix. Hunt is suspended the first 8 games and Duke Johnson has been part of trade talks so there just might be room for Hilliard once again this year. This is especially true after seeing Freddie Kitchens’ affinity for running the wishbone offense, which showcases three backs on the field at once.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
