The Cleveland Browns are coming off another disappointing season, but there's hope for 2020 under new head coach Kevin Stefanski. The roster still has plenty of young talent that's looking to break through in 2020.

If the Browns can ensure a bounce-back year from Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr. and others, they could quickly right the ship. With that in mind, here are three Cleveland Browns players who could make their first Pro Bowl next season.

1. J.C. Tretter, C

J.C. Tretter has been the anchor of the Browns' offensive line for three years. He's made 48 consecutive starts at center and has performed admirably despite plenty of chaos around him. One of the key factors in Nick Chubb's Pro Bowl season in 2019, Tretter is more than deserving of finally making his first Pro Bowl appearance. He was also recently elected President of the NFL Players' Association, showing he's one of the most respected and liked players across the league.

2. Larry Ogunjobi, DT

The Browns' coaching staff is expecting big things from Larry Ogunjobi, who made some big improvements in 2019. Ogunjobi tallied 5.5 sacks last year and has finally shown signs of becoming a reliable pass rusher after a shaky start to his career. Another year of improvements for Ogunjobi could earn him his first Pro Bowl appearance.

3. Baker Mayfield

This would be a welcome site for Browns fans. With an upgraded offensive line that includes Jack Conklin and an upgraded skill position group that now features Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Chubb, Kareem Hunt and Austin Hooper, there are no more excuses for Baker Mayfield. He looked much better as a rookie than he did in 2019, so there's certainly reason to believe that he can bounce back and take a step forward in such a QB-friendly offense.
