Cleveland Browns 53-Man roster prediction Preseason Week 2
Offensive Line (9): Greg Robinson, Joel Bitonio, J.C. Tretter, Eric Kush, Chris Hubbard, Kendall Lamm, Kyle Kalis, Austin Corbett, Drew Forbes
If there is any position group that could derail this season, it has to be the offensive line. They did finish out 2018 playing exceptional football but this came after a really rough start. Not only that, but they also traded away one of their better starters as Kevin Zeitler is now with the New York Giants.
Trying to find his replacement has been tough and right now, it looks as though Eric Kush it the guy. He’s done better than Austin Corbett, although the second-year pro seemed to be pretty comfortable at center against Washington.
The other four starters remain the same with Greg Robinson returning on a one-year “prove-it” deal after playing well in the second half of the season. He lines up next to Joel Bitonio, who is the best blocker on the team now. J.C. Tretter is in a contract year and has been an absolute warrior playing through injuries. Chris Hubbard rounds out the starters and needs to play better in 2019 to justify his lofty contract.
Cleveland has a new swing tackle this year in Kendall Lamm, who comes over from the Houston Texans. He started 13 games last year and was an underrated signing. Right now, he looks like the only tackle worth keeping around although Drew Forbes could potentially play both inside and out.
Kyle Kalis also makes the team and still has an outside shot at beating out Kush for the starting right guard position. He plays with a mean streak, which is always nice for offensive linemen to have.
