1. David Njoku


It’s pretty clear the Browns see Njoku as a promising piece of the future, with the organization signing the 2017 first-round pick to a four-year extension and letting Austin Hooper go. Njoku likely will be receiving the most targets of his career next season. Even with Harrison Bryant still in the fold, Njoku is TE No. 1 and should be able to top his career-high of four touchdowns. He finished fourth among tight ends in yards per reception (13.2) a season ago, trailing only Kyle Pitts, Dallas Goedert and Rob Gronkowski.
