Terrance West expected to get double-digit touches per game

The Cleveland Browns selected small school running back Terrance West in the third-round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

With West being selected with one of the team’s priority picks, there was plenty of speculation about just how much he would be used in the offense during his rookie season – especially with the Browns signing Ben Tate during the offseason.

If Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland is to be believed, then the Towson product will be getting his fair share of touches on a weekly basis.

Grossi has predicted ten touches per game for the rookie.

Without wide receiver Josh Gordon on the outside stretching defenses, the Browns are expected to feature a run-heavy offense.

West will be a big part of that.

In college, West was a well-rounded rusher and his ability between the tackles caught the attention of NFL scouts around the league.

With West and Tate, the Browns will have an impressive one-two punch in the backfield behind either Brian Hoyer or rookie signal-caller Johnny Manziel.
