OL Spencer Drango
If you’ve seen Spencer Drango play throughout the preseason, you would say that him being a cut would not be a surprise. His lackluster play the last three weeks – and his play last season – would make it seem like his roster spot is in a lot of trouble.

But since Drango was the first guy the Browns turned to when Kevin Zeitler went down with an injury during training camp, him being cut would certainly count as a surprise.
Drango has starting experience at both guard and tackle. Players that can play on the edge and the interior of the offensive line is very valuable for general managers when trying to save roster spots.
However, Drango has showed that he does not excel at either position. One of his biggest strengths is being a turnstile into the backfield for defensive linemen.
The one holdup in the Browns potentially moving on from Drango is the team’s lack of interior linemen depth. Throughout the preseason, Drango and Austin Corbett have both played with the starting offense and backup offense. Corbett has seen the increased playing time to get as many reps as possible to get ready for the regular season, but the team also does not have that many other options at guard.
If the Browns feel that Greg Robinson – who has experience being a swing lineman – can play guard despite not getting many reps at the position during training camp, Drango could very well be on the outside looking in at the Browns final 53-man roster.
