Browns Roster: John's 53

Rising to the challenge of compensating for Barry's 53, John Taylor offers his own...


Jake Delhomme

Seneca Wallace

Colt McCoy

COMMENT: If the Browns keep four QBs, I'll say something nice about McBride. I won't be saying anything nice about McBride at any point in the near or distant future.

Running Backs

Jerome Harrison

Montario Hardesty

James Davis

Lawrence Vickers

Peyton Hillis

COMMENT: Flip a coin between Davis and Chris Jennings; that's what I did.  Look for Hardesty to pick up more carries as the season goes along, possibly supplanting Harrison as the starter by midseason -- if not earlier.  Way, way earlier.

Tight Ends

Ben Watson

Evan Moore

Alex Smith

COMMENT: Royal goes from 2009 starter to 2010 training camp cut.

Wide Receivers

Mohamed Massaquoi

Brian Robiskie

Carlton Mitchell

Chansi Stuckey

Josh Cribbs

COMMENT: Like most everyone, I fully expect a veteran to be added between now and the start of the regular season. Look at that group listed above; how can an addition not happen?

Offensive Linemen

Joe Thomas

Eric Steinbach

Alex Mack

Floyd Womack

Tony Pashos

Shawn Lauvao

Jason Capizzi

Eric Ghiaciuc

COMMENT: This is another area where a veteran could be added at some point. The underwhelming John St. Clair has likely seen his last days as a Cleveland Brown.

Defensive Linemen

Shaun Rogers

Ahytba Rubin

Kenyon Coleman

C.J. Mosley

Robaire Smith

Keith Grennan

Clifton Geathers

COMMENT: I'm banking on Geathers being more freak than flash, which means he'll be pulling his swollen, entitled head out of his ass any day now. Could be yet another position that sees a veteran upgrade before the season starts, especially with Rogers' looming suspension.


D'Qwell Jackson

Matt Roth

Scott Fujita

Chris Gocong

Jason Trusnik

David Bowens

Marcus Benard

Blake Costanza

Kaluka Maiava

Titus Brown

COMMENT: Agree with Lane; toughest position on this team to accurately project. So many players are interchangeable at so many different spots that, this far ahead, something like this project is an exercise in guesstimation.

Defensive Backs

Eric Wright

Sheldon Brown

Joe Haden

Brandon McDonald

Abram Elam

T.J. Ward

Larry Asante

Mike Adams

Coye Francies

COMMENT: Taking a flier on Francies. Have heard some good things about him this offseason, so what the hell. Only five of these slots are relatively guaranteed, so anything can happen at the bottom half of this unit.

Special Teams

Phil Dawson

Dave Zastudil

Ryan Pontbriand

COMMENT: Like every other year, nothing to see here.  Move on.  Unless Dawson's contract "situation" comes to a head, of course...
