Who Makes the Final 53 Man Roster?

With the Cleveland Browns needing to cut down their rosters today, Fred brings you his prediction for the team's 53 man roster.

As NFL teams begin to whittle down their roster from 90 to 53 players within the next week, we’re going to take a shot at predicting who will make the final roster. The cuts are always somewhat unpredictable as often players are placed on injured reserve with injuries that were more serious than believed to have been during the preseason. This projection is based on the current 90­ man roster of the Browns and usually changes, as the Browns will likely add players released from other teams.

WR—Dwayne Bowe, Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins, Taylor Gabriel, Travis Benjamin, Terrelle Pryor, Marlon Moore (7)

OL—Joe Thomas, Joel Bitonio, Alex Mack, John Greco, Mitchell Schwartz, Cameron Erving, Vinston Painter, Andrew McDonald (8)

TE—Gary Barnidge, Jim Dray, E.J. Bibbs (3)

QB—Josh McCown, Johnny Manziel (2)

RB—Isaiah Crowell, Terrance West, Duke Johnson, Malcolm Johnson (4)

DL—Desmond Bryant, Armonty Bryant, Danny Shelton, Phil Taylor, Randy Starks, Xavier Cooper, John Hughes, Ish Kitchen (8)

LB—Paul Kruger, Scott Solomon, Karlos Dansby, Christian Kirksey, Craig Robertson, Barkevious Mingo, Tank Carder, Nate Orchard (8)

DB—Joe Haden, Tramon Williams, Donte Whitner, Tashaun Gipson, Justin Gilbert, Pierre Desir, K’Waun Williams, Charles Gaines, Jordan Poyer, Ibraheim Campbell (10)

Specialists—Andy Lee, Charlie Hughlett, Travis Coons (3)

Practice Squad: Vince Mayle, Hayes Pullard, Jamie Meder, Robert Nelson, Darius Jennings, Josh Lenz, Kendall James and Dylan Wynn

If these projections are true, the Browns would be parting ways with several players who might be considered surprises including, Billy Winn, Johnson Bademosi, Rob Housler, Michael Bowie, Thad Lewis, Vince Mayle, Robert Nelson and Shaun Draughn.
