Ben Tate remains confident that he's the frontrunner to win the No. 1 running back job.

Willis McGahee was the Browns leading rusher last season following the trade of Trent Richardson to the Colts. With the lack of a real ground attack the Browns went and signed Ben Tate to be their starting running back. With no real competition only injury should prevent Tate from being the lead back for the Browns this season.
