Other Notes

  • From my final roster projection, I got 49/53 (92%) of my picks correct. I always aim for above 90%, so I’ll take it.
  • The four players who did not make the final roster from my projection were FB Johnny Stanton, TE Miller Forristall, OL Blake Hance, and CB Herb Miller. The four players who made it instead were OL Drew Forbes, DE Isaac Rochell, LB Jordan Kunaszyk, and S Richard LeCounte.
  • As always, remember that this is the initial 53-man roster. The team could place a few players on IR, or still cut certain players to make room for waiver claims. The Browns have a few short-term IR candidates, such as WR Michael Woods, RT Jack Conklin, and DE Chase Winovich.
  • Despite a few of the surprise cuts, there was nothing jaw-dropping among the cuts. From a positional standpoint, the Browns listed Demetric Felton at running back, but he is sort of an extra receiver. Cleveland went with the interesting approach of having only two players combined at the tight end and fullback position. I have to imagine they’ll end up adding someone who can be an extra tight end for gameday — you really need three in case one of your top two guys get hurt.
