Predicting the Browns starters for next year

Although training camp hasn’t even begun it’s time for my first prediction of the Browns starters in week one.
Offense
QB Brian Hoyer
RB Ben Tate/Terrance West
WR1 Miles Austin
WR2 Nate Burleson
WR3 Anthony Hawkins
TE Jordan Cameron
LT Joe Thomas
LG John Greco
C Alex Mack
RG Joel Bitonio
RT Mitchell Schwartz

Defense
DE Desmond Bryant
NT Phil Taylor
DE Rubin
ROLB Paul Kruger
ILB Karlos Dansby
ILB Christian Kirksey
LOLB Jabaal Kirksey
CB1 Joe Haden
CB2 Justin Gilbert
FS Tashaun Gipson
SS Donte Whitner

Special Teams
LS Christian Yount
K Billy Cundiff
P Spencer Lanning

Notes- contrary to popular belief, Johnny Manziel is not the Browns starting QB and more than likely won’t be at any stage this season as he is currently third in the depth chart.

Ben Tate and Terrance West are expected to share the snaps at running back although Isaiah Crowell and Dion Lewis may see significant action as well.

Only change on the line sees rookie Joel Bitonio slot in for the departed Shawn Laouvo.

Miles Austin looks set to be the number one wide receiver until Josh Gordon returns whenever that may be. Behind that is unclear with Nate Burleson and Travis Benjamin returning from injury.

On defense the only changes were rookies Christian Kirksey and Justin Gilbert going straight into the team.
