Browns Roster: Sobo's 53

The fourth in our continuing series, as Brent Sobleski takes his turn predicting the final 53...

Quarterbacks

Jake Delhomme

Seneca Wallace

Colt McCoy

COMMENT: A complete turnover in talent will help improve the weakest unit on the team, and one of the NFL's most woeful situations under center a year ago.

Running Backs

Jerome Harrison

Montario Hardesty

Peyton Hillis

Lawrence Vickers

COMMENT: A crowded stable of running backs will likely see one or two talented carriers get cut or find their way onto the practice squad.

Tight Ends

Ben Watson

Evan Moore

Alex Smith

Greg Estandia

COMMENT: Expect the usage of the tight end to become a bigger part of the offense both as blockers and targets.

Wide Receivers

Mohamed Massaquoi

Brian Robiskie

Chansi Stuckey

Joshua Cribbs

Carlton Mitchell

COMMENT: Relying heavily on youth and potential, improved quarterback play alone should make this crop look better than previously seen.

Offensive Linemen

Joe Thomas

Eric Steinbach

Alex Mack

Porkchop' Womack

Tony Pashos

Shawn Lauvao

Jason Capizzi

John St. Clair

COMMENT: With the game's top left tackle and a potential stud center, a solid starting five will emerge with some developing youth and a veteran who can play all five positions to provide depth.

Defensive Linemen

Shaun Rogers

Robaire Smith

Kenyon Coleman

Ahtyba Rubin

C.J. Mosley

Brian Schaefering

Clifton Geathers

COMMENT: A big, strong, yet older unit overall should eventually pave the way for some young talent champing at the bit.  BTW, it will be hard to sneak a physical talent like Geathers past the waiver wire.

Linebackers

Matt Roth

Scott Fujita

D'Qwell Jackson

Chris Gocong

David Bowens

Jason Trusnick

Kaluka Maiava

Blake Costanzo

David Veikune

Marcus Bernard

COMMENT: While no standouts are included in this group, the overall dynamic is very deep and relatively talented with multiple players serving different roles.

Defensive Backs

Eric Wright

Sheldon Brown

Joe Haden

Brandon McDonald

Mike Adams

Abe Elam

T.J. Ward

Larry Asante

Ray Ventrone

COMMENT: While no standouts are included in this group, the overall dynamic is very deep and relatively talented with multiple players serving different roles.

Special Teams

Phil Dawson

David Zastudil

Ryan Pontbriand

COMMENT: Always steady.  Always reliable.  Some of the best in the business.
