Cleveland Browns All-Ohio Team

So there’s a couple of these lists going around the internet nowadays. Picking players from their birthplace to play for their coinciding hometown NFL team. For the Browns I picked players from all parts of Ohio. The Bengals can kick rocks. No one cares about the Bengals, not even people from Cincinnati. I picked the top players at each position according to their preseason Madden 2013 Overall Rating. Overall, it’s a pretty good squad with the strengths being the linebackers and secondary.
