Who makes the final 53 man roster?

The OBR projects the Browns 53 man roster

BEREA, Ohio--Despite a less than inspiring preseason, some would wonder if there are 53 players worthy of playing on the Browns.

Regardless, the Browns must get their roster down to 53 players by Saturday afternoon. After that, they can add up to 10 players to their practice squad. It is hard to project the bottom of the roster as teams generally re-shuffle it in the first few days after other teams make their cuts.

Every year when teams trim their roster to 53, there are usually a few surprises, but here's our best projection what the Browns final roster will look like by Saturday.
