On the cusp: The Browns liked what they saw in cornerback Charles Gaines during training camp and the preseason; he played better with each game. But late in camp, Gaines hurt his hamstring severely enough that the Browns placed him on injured reserve-designated to return. Gaines was activated this week, and with Joe Haden still in the concussion protocol, Gaines could get on the field sooner rather than later.

Undrafted free agents they like: Unlike a year ago, when the Browns discovered WR Taylor Gabriel and DB K’Waun Williams, the team has had almost zero contributions from undrafted free agents. The most prominent one is TE E.J. Bibbs; he has been active in one game, and he was on the field for two snaps in Cincinnati.

My take on class: It has not been good. Shelton was drafted to help the team’s run defense, and the Browns rank last in the league. Shelton has had trouble getting off blocks and making impact plays. Cameron Erving has been used mainly as an extra tight end, but he lacks the conditioning and strength to be effective immediately. The best player has been Duke Johnson, but even his impact has been less than advertised. He’s a role player touted as a solution. For a team with 12 picks, including the 12th and 19th overall, to have this little production is not good. Grade: D.

Mel Kiper’s take on class: Johnson Jr. is one of the better receiving threats out of the backfield to enter the league in the past few years. He”s piling up the catches and can even line up at wide receiver as needed. The biggest question is can Danny Shelton be an impact defensive tackle or is he better suited as more of a rotation player? So far, it”s been more of the latter. Cameron Erving should be a good one once he”s called upon.
