3 undrafted Cleveland Browns who could make the team
By Randy Gurzi
Which three players who went undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft could end up making the cut and being on the Cleveland Browns 53-man roster?
Two undrafted free agents from 2018 ended up making the most of their chance with the Cleveland Browns last season. The first of those was Desmond Harrison, an offensive tackle from West Georgia and the second was Derrick Willies, a wideout from Texas Tech.
Harrison started the season out as the left tackle, which was a bit of a surprise considering he missed much of training camp with an injury. As expected, he ended up struggling but did show some flashes.
Nevertheless, he was replaced after eight games by Greg Robinson — who is slated to start this season at the blindside. That doesn’t mean Harrison doesn’t have a future in the NFL, he just needs more time to work against elite talent after playing collegiate at a small school.
Another undrafted player who stood out this past year was Willies, who was one of Baker Mayfield‘s favorite targets in the preseason. He did enough to make the 53-man roster and made a huge play in their overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens. Unfortunately, Willies broke his collarbone and wound up playing in just five games. He has a packed receiving corps in front of him now, but showed he belonged in his short time on the field.
Looking ahead to this year, we identify three undrafted free agents who could crack the 53-man roster for Cleveland in 2019.
