We finally get to see the Cleveland Browns in action.
This won’t be a normal training camp in the aspect of fans and media participation.
The access will be limited; however, the start of camp is a step in the right direction for the start of the season.
When attending training camp, fans would normally congregate and talk about the upcoming season’s strengths and weaknesses.
These talking points can certainly be discussed, even if you have to go through the virtual option.
No. 1: What Is The Kevin Stefanski System?
Stefanski has spent time with Super Bowl-winning coach Gary Kubiak and will fall from his line of coaching tree.
Kubiak has elements that can create a successful offense.
The question is can Stefanski implement those elements into the 2020 Browns.
Gary Kubiak and Mike Shanahan created the system that Matt LaFleur, Kyle Shanahan, and more coaches use today. And now the Vikings offensive coordinator is returning to show just how far it can go.@robertmays: https://t.co/mYkdqbt7Xx

No. 2: Baker Mayfield’s Accuracy
Twenty-Two touchdowns and twenty-one interceptions.
The second-lowest quarterback rating in the entire NFL.
All eyes will be in how Mayfield looks with a new offensive coordinator, Alex Van Pelt.
No. 3: Playoff Time
Imagine there was no pandemic and you could enter a facility with strangers.
You look at the person and you are thinking the same thing.
For the first time in 18 years, the Browns could make the playoffs.
Going 9-7 is a real possibility for this team.
No. 4: Myles Garrett Has A Lot To Prove
In a matter of one year, Garrett has received a suspension and an extension.
Garrett received an extension with $100 million in guaranteed money.
When it comes to numbers, Garrett has compiled one complete and spectacular season.
The 2020 season has to be an All-Pro year.

No. 5: The Impact Of Rookies
How much will Jedrick Wills Jr. grow up once he becomes a starter?
Can Jordan Elliott and Jordan Phillips produce as backups?
Is Grant Delpit the real deal?
There are so many questions.
No. 6: Can The Browns Swing A Trade Splash?
Remember when the Chicago Bears did the unthinkable and acquired Khalil Mack before the season started in 2018?
Jaguars star pass rusher, Yannick Ngakoue, is still on the trade market.
The Browns were rumored to have an interest at one point.
The team should revisit that idea.
No. 7: Kareem Hunt’s Role
Nick Chubb nearly led the league in rushing in 2019, but that was with Hunt missing eight games.
Hunt, a former NFL rushing champion in 2017, will play a full season with Chubb.
We are not completely sure if he will be used as a pass-catching back, or the complement to Chubb.
No. 8: Two Tight Ends
David Njoku asked for a trade.
He can backtrack all he wants, but sharing the ball with Austin Hooper does not sound like something he wants.
Stefanski will have to find a way to spread the wealth over two athletic tight ends.
Berry on David Njoku and his rescinded trade request: “What can I tell you with David. … he’s been very engaged with our coaching staff. He’s shown up in terrific shape. … We think he has an important role to play. … We think he can have a fantastic year.” pic.twitter.com/T2OeEo36YN

No. 9: Star Power
Odell Beckham Jr. has to prove he is a top-5 receiver in this league.
The critics believe that Beckham has all the potential in the world.
OBJ is going to be 28 years old in November.
We can’t keep talking about potential.
No. 10: The Length Of The Season
There is no guarantee that the NFL season will happen and how long the season will occur.
The talk of a bubble has been proposed, specifically for the playoffs.
With a world of uncertainty, the season’s health guidelines will be widely speculated.
