5 Cleveland Browns Who Could Make Pro Bowl in 2014

Last season, the Cleveland Browns had more Pro Bowl players (5) than they did wins (4). In 2014, Cleveland will attempt to at least maintain the amount of Pro Bowlers on the roster while boosting the their success in the win column. There will be some questions that need to be answered during the season, but for the following five players making the Pro Bowl seems like a real possibility.

New Browns running back Ben Tate has been the backup to Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster during all of Foster's seasons in which he was selected to the Pro Bowl. Now the starter in Cleveland, Tate has looked good in the preseason and will have a good chance of putting together his own Pro Bowl-caliber season under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. If Tate can remain healthy and keep his current pace, he could be up for selection in January.

Last season, Jordan Cameron burst onto the scene in a Cleveland Browns uniform to earn himself a trip to the Pro Bowl. However, he is now a marked man in the NFL, and defenses will be targeting him just as much as Browns quarterbacks in 2014. Cameron will be a top target in the passing game due to Josh Gordon's imminent suspension. Cameron is more than capable of having another great year, and his athleticism should be of great use to Shanahan.

The Browns will be relying heavily on the running game in 2014, so center Alex Mack will be the anchor yet again for Cleveland in the middle. Mack is coming off a Pro Bowl season and also took part in the contest in 2010. Over his career, Mack has proven that he's one of the best centers in the game and will continue to do so. Look out for several more Pro Bowl selections in Mack's career.

2013 was cornerback Joe Haden's first career Pro Bowl selection, but it certainly won't be his last. In the offseason, Cleveland signed Haden to a lucrative contract that will see him in a Browns uniform during his best years. He's established himself as one of the best corners in the game and will look to help lead a Cleveland defense on a weekly basis. Haden showed why he's a top player last week when he jumped a route for an interception.

The Cleveland Browns have been a staple of inferiority since Joe Thomas was drafted in 2007, but Thomas himself has not. All Thomas has done is made the Pro Bowl every single year since he's been an NFL player. Seven times he has made the trip to Hawaii, and he will look to add one more Pro Bowl selection in 2014. While the Browns have suffered overall, players like Thomas give a glimmer of hope for the future.
