The Cleveland Browns head into Madden NFL 17 similar to how they enter most Madden seasons. You can see the potential for a really good team but they just aren’t quite there yet.
We have the full Madden 17 Cleveland Browns team breakdown below.
Team: Cleveland Browns
Offensive Strategy: Use your speed. Robert Griffin III, Isaiah Crowell, Corey Coleman, and Andrew Hawkins all have top end speed for their positions. The Browns also have a great option at tight end with Gary Barnidge.
Defensive Strategy: Force turnovers. The Browns have a solid pash rush but more importantly for Madden 17, they have 4 really good options at cornerback. You should be able to slow down your opponent’s passing game and force a couple turnovers.
Impact Players: QB Robert Griffin III, WR Corey Coleman, TE Gary Barnidge, LT Joe Thomas, LG Joel Bitonio, RE Emmanuel Ogbah, LOLB Barkevious Mingo, MLB DeMario Davis, ROLB Paul Kruger, CB Joe Haden, CB Tramon Williams, CB Kwaun Williams, CB Justin Gilbert
Strengths: Speed on offense and cornerback. If you can get the ball to your playmakers in space you will have a pretty good chance of moving the ball against most defenses.
Weaknesses: Dominant players. The Browns don’t have the game changing players that elite teams have. Outside of Joe Haden and Joe Thomas, the Browns don’t have anyone who is a top player at their position.
Overview: The Browns are far from a top team in Madden 17, but they have the raw potential to become a very good team with roster updates if they put together a decent season.
