Cleveland Browns: The 2016 cornerbacks
Charles Gaines was a rookie last year and he even started two games in 2015. He showed talent but needs to show improvement this year. Going into this year he should make the team as the backup nickelback, but must prove he can also be productive on special teams.
Odds Gaines makes the team: 80 percent
Jamar Taylor was drafted in the second round of the 2013 draft by the Miami Dolphins and was traded to the Browns of this year’s draft. Taylor never lived up to his potential in Miami, much like Gilbert has not in Cleveland.
Hopefully a new team and new coaches can get the most out of him. The Browns have very little invested in Taylor so he really needs to show up this could be his last chance in the NFL.
Odds Taylor makes the team: 60 percent.
Fifth-round draft pick Trey Caldwell, along with undrafted free agents A.J. Stamps and Kenya Dennis, all have the same chance to make the team. Their best chance is on special teams but most likely if any are signed it will be to the practice squad. However, one or more could shine in the NFL structure and out play any of the above mentioned and earn a spot on the active roster much like K’Wuan Williams did.
Odds they make the team: 30 percent.
