Best Brown

Running Back
Reuben Droughns

Yes, this award is strictly for onfield performance. Otherwise we'd go with someone not accused of tossing around his wife shortly after getting cleared of DUI charges. But extralegal antics aside, Droughns is precisely what the Browns need to survive in the AFC North: a durable back who takes the ball all game, racks up big yards, and stays strong through the fourth quarter. After two decades without a running back who had any hope of busting out 1,000 yards a season, the Dawg Pound deserves a guy who can both muscle his way to a first down and break off a 25-yard run. If Droughns can just stay out of trouble, he's our man.
