For as many players who compete for a spot at rookie minicamp, there aren’t many who actually make something of it as far as cracking a 90-man roster. For the Cleveland Browns, that was a little bit different this year. Out of 30 tryout players, the team decided to sign 3 of them (10%). Here are the new additions to the Browns:

  • FB/RB Trayone Gray - 6-1, 233 lbs. - Miami
  • LB Willie Harvey - 5-11, 230 lbs. - Iowa State
  • CB Jhavonte Dean - 6-1, 185 lbs. - Miami

On top of being fortunate to make the team as tryout players, both Gray and Dean played for Miami in college. Gray was Dane Brugler’s 47th-ranked running back in this year’s class, while Dean was the 91st-ranked cornerback. Harevey was his 102nd-ranked linebacker.

With the good comes the bad, as Cleveland had to say goodbye to three players in corresponding moves: RB Darrin Hall, LB Xavier Woodson-Luster, and CB Ashton Lampkin. Some fans may chuckle at themselves a bit about seeing Hall’s name there if they were among the group who made early predictions that he would make the team’s 53-man roster. Lampkin and Woodson-Luster were signed by GM John Dorsey late last season.
