With the Cleveland Browns entering their last week of the preseason while they continue to slim their roster down, who are a few under-the-radar guys who could make the final cut?
For the first time in a very long time, the Cleveland Browns are in a very unfamiliar position where guys who get cut from their roster will make another 53 man roster on another team and actually see the field.
From position groups like running back and receiver all the way to the defensive tackles, some groups are loaded with talent while some lack it and run thin.
As the Browns enter their final week of the pre season and get one final tune up, here are a few guys that might be on the bubble as of now but could end up finding their way onto the roster.
No. 3: Johnny Stanton
Before head coach Kevin Stefanski arrived in Cleveland as the new man in charge, fullbacks were not used much at all when it came to the Browns. Now, they have not one but two solid fullbacks, both who I can see them keeping.
Current fullback number one for the Browns Andy Janovich is all but a lock to make the roster. That said, would they really keep another one? If you’re versatile and can do more than just the standard fullback, they just might find a spot for you.
From being on the kickoff coverage unit to playing fullback to catching passes, fullback Johnny Stanton has been moved around everywhere and has been doing a little bit of everything so far this pre-season, making the most of his opportunities. In the Browns pre-season win on Sunday, Stanton made a nice grab that grabbed the attention of many.
Yes, the Browns do have three pretty solid tight ends on their roster as well. That said, obviously Harrison Bryant is the least proven tight end out of the three, and if Stanton is capable of doing more, he may be more valuable.
