Browns Dead Last In 1st Set Of 2012 SB Nation Power Rankings

The Browns begin training camp Tuesday night, with some rookies and veterans reporting in Berea and full practices beginning this weekend. Trent Richardson is now in the fold and Brandon Weeden's deal should be finalized in the next two days. With camps kicking up all around the league, SB Nation put together the season's first power rankings, according to our network of NFL blogs.

And based on the first set of rankings, there's only one way for the Browns to go! Cleveland comes in dead last at No. 32, while their division rivals are ranked No. 16 (Bengals), No. 7 (Steelers), and No. 6 (Ravens). More on the Browns ranking after the jump:

Although Cleveland's offense was unbearable in 2011, they could turn heads early on in the season. The talent they have on the offensive line might be the best kept secret in the league. That could mean top-notch protection for rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden, and some nice lanes for running back Trent Richardson, who will be featured heavily.

Cleveland's defense played at a high level last year, but is the addition of Frostee Rucker at defensive end enough to drastically improve the team's run defense?
