The fourth-overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft rose on the early depth chart, and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams pointed out last week on the team’s last day of minicamp that Ward’s veteran teammates played a role.

When a veteran comes to me and says, ‘Hey coach, we’re better when Denzel is out there,’ Williams said, via Patrick Maks of the Browns’ official website. ‘So really? Now you’re taking ownership of him? Oh really? Now you’re mentoring DJ Chark Youth Jersey him? OK, we’ll see. I will give him a couple of reps out there, and we will see.’

After that, when you give that kid the opportunity and that he fits in the room, as opposed to just anointing him because we drafted him. He hasn’t played in this league. I don’t anoint anybody. Both he and Myles [Garrett] got the acceptance of the other veterans faster than most rookies that I’ve had.

He’s one of the best press guys I’ve seen in the last few years at this level, Williams told reporters. He still has a ways to go, but coming in he has a base of knowledge that’s pretty good.

The Bucs not counting heavily on a player who started 10 games last season underscores just how much the team enhanced their defensive line this offseason.

Tyrod Taylor or Baker Mayfield? Don’t Believe Hue Jackson Has Made a Final Decision More I don’t have a single doubt that Tyrod Taylor has earned the right to be the Cleveland Browns ‘ starting quarterback heading into training camp. He went 22-20 over three years as the Bills’ starter while accounting for 65 touchdowns against 16 interceptions. I know it was given in the beginning, but he still had Womens Greg Pateryn Jersey to do the things that were going to let him be the starting quarterback here and he’s done that, Hue Jackson told reporters last week.

But just how long will Taylor hold on to that top spot this summer, especially as No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield makes his run to be the Week 1 starter? Jackson has made similarly strong proclamations about his starting quarterback before. A look back at what he had to say about three different QBs—none on the level of Taylor or Mayfield—at different points last summer.
