Browns' Biggest Weaknesses Ahead of 2023 NFL Training Camp

The Cleveland Browns ended a long playoff drought in 2020, when they reached the postseason for the first time since 2002.

However, they've been unable to get back there in either of the past two seasons.

After going 7-10 and finishing fourth in the AFC North last year, Cleveland will aim to get back to the playoffs during the upcoming season.

The team didn't make a ton of huge moves over the offseason, but it should have a stronger roster than it did in 2022.

Of course, no NFL team is perfect. And the Browns have a few areas that could prove to be weaker than others once the new season arrives.

Here's a look at Cleveland's top weaknesses as the start of training camp looms next month.

Depth at Running Back : Nick Chubb is one of the best running backs in the NFL, so the Browns have a top-tier option to give the ball to in their backfield. 

But as things stand, he may have to carry it quite a bit during the upcoming season.

Cleveland doesn't have a great option to be the No. 2 back behind Chubb with Kareem Hunt no longer on the team.

Jerome Ford, Demetric Felton Jr. and John Kelly Jr. will all be competing for playing time throughout training camp and the preseason.

If Chubb gets injured at any point, the Browns could be in some trouble.

The 27-year-old rushed for a career-high 1,525 yards and 12 touchdowns while starting all 17 games last season, proving just how valuable he is to the team's offense.

Maybe one of Ford, Felton or Kelly will emerge as a surprise contributor. But for now, this is one of the shallower areas on Cleveland's offense.
