Browns | RB Needs To Catch

Tony Grossi reports for the Plain Dealer a key ingredient for the RB that will start for the Cleveland Browns in offensive coordinator Bruce Arians' scheme is the ability to catch the ball. Sixty catches a season out of Arians' starting back might be the norm. That is one reason the team reportedly prefered Deuce McAllister over LaDainian Tomlinson in the NFL Draft. It may be another factor in them not pursuing Bengals free agent RB Corey Dillon. Dillon has averaged only 26 catches a year for the Bengals. One back who fits the mold they are seeking is Ricky Watters who averages 51 catches a season. If no running back is added, the contenders for the starting position in training camp will be Errict Rhett, Travis Prentice and rookie James Jackson. Prentice did have 37 catches last season. Rhett's career high is 24.
