Now starting the entire Cleveland Browns 2004 defensive line. Browns had the 32nd ranked run D last year, I have to imagine that lackluster D-line would make even Miami's O-line look decent.
Denver actually has linebackers though. Cleveland doesn't have anybody with the caliber of a DJ Williams or even an Ian Gold. Champ Bailey has a huge impact on the defense and what types of schemes they are able to run. I doubt Denver is ranked last in the league in run defense just because they picked up 3 former Cleveland Browns D-linemen (who were all basically blue-chip prospects coming out of college). Maybe these guys will find a will to play and stay healthy now that they are joining a "REAL" team.
No offense Cleveland Browns. (get it, no offense, hehe).
