James Walker the AFC North Blogger at ESPN did a piece about some of the sleepers this year in the division, and the Browns have two on the list:
7. Brian Robiskie, WR, Browns
Why: The Browns aren’t expected to air it out much this season, but Robiskie should be ready to make plays when the opportunity presents itself. Robiskie remains unsigned as of Wednesday, so it’s important that he gets into training camp on time when the full team takes the practice field Saturday. Cleveland’s No. 2 receiver job is wide open this season, and with Braylon Edwards currently sidelined with an unspecified leg injury, Robiskie will get plenty of early reps with the first team. If he is as polished as scouts and the Browns believe he is, Robiskie could earn a starting job with Cleveland at some point in his rookie season.
Walker’s projected 2009 numbers: 35 receptions, 484 yards, two touchdowns.
4. Brodney Pool, S, Browns
Why: For four years, the Browns have been waiting for the light to come for Pool. He has above-average ability, but so far has been just an average NFL safety. Pool is arguably the best athlete Cleveland has on its roster. But to date no one has been able to get the best out of his abilities. Now that new coach Eric Mangini and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan have their hands on Pool, this sleeper could be primed for his best season to date.
Walker’s projected 2009 numbers: 85 tackles, three interceptions.
