The Cleveland Browns are about to start their 2018 training camp. Before they do, we take one last prediction of how their 53-man roster shakes out.
Training camp is finally coming up as the Cleveland Browns will have their first practice on July 26. Yes, football is finally back and we get to see this new version of the remade Browns roster.
It will be exciting to see new faces like veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor as well as Baker Mayfield, the rookie they drafted first overall. There’s also Jarvis Landry, Josh Gordon, and Myles Garrett all looking for big seasons in 2018 and camp is the first step in that direction.
The overall roster is of course much more than just a few big names. Here we will do our best to predict what players will make up the full 53-man roster for your Cleveland Browns as we approach training camp.
Special Teams (3): Zane Gonzalez, Britton Colquitt, Charley Hughlett
The kicking battle could get exciting because Zane Gonzalez had his share of problems during his rookie campaign. Overall he wasn’t bad, but the team is going to give Ross Martin a shot. Here Gonzalez ends up beating him out, but their battle could be close.
Britton Colquitt keeps the punting job and that’s no shock. He’s about as solid as they come and will have no real competition other than maybe some camp legs to keep him fresh.
Long snapper is an often overlooked position. It’s easy to forget about it if you have a good one. Once one is bad, you’ll know. The Browns currently feel great about Charley Hughlett as an unsung hero on their roster.
