Browns RB Trent Richardson is a lock to start and become a workhorse, but who will be his primary backup? The Browns hope Montario Hardesty can finally stay healthy and prove himself worthy of a second-round pick, but it will be an uphill battle considering his medical history, which includes a torn ACL and a torn calf muscle in the past two years. Brandon Jackson, who has returned to action after missing all of last season with an injured toe, is viewed as an ideal third-down back, and he has what it takes to challenge Hardesty for playing time. Chris Ogbonnaya will fight for a roster spot and could benefit if either Hardesty or Jackson suffer setbacks on the comeback trail.
