Training camp is just around the corner and the Cleveland Browns players will be working hard to make the final roster. Will these five players make it?

The Cleveland Browns are currently having their offseason voluntary workouts. Many of the players are showing up and the team seems to have a “new energy and feel to them” as they prepare for a big season ahead.

Mandatory minicamp is right around the corner as it goes from June 14-16. Then training camp starts in July. Several players will need to continue to show up and work hard if they want to make that final 53-man roster in September.

Some of these players on this list might surprise you but this team has some decisions to make as they have a good roster and some of these talented players may end up going elsewhere in time. Let’s take a look at some of these players.

Player No. 1: Cleveland Browns RB Demetric Felton

Running back Demetric Felton was one of those newly drafted players a year ago that everyone was excited to see as we went into last season. Felton made some nice plays and scored a couple of touchdowns a year ago. He was used more as a wide receiver last year and also took kickoff and punt returns.

This season is going to be different, and Felton will have his work cut out for him. The team plans on having Felton work out as a running back and that is a tough task, to begin with. The Browns already have Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt and D’Ernest Johnson returning to camp and Cleveland drafted a new running back in Jerome Ford.

The team also signed Jakeem Grant, a kick return specialist who will take over that role that Felton had a year ago. So where exactly Felton can make his mark might be a real challenge to figure out.

This training camp and the pending preseason games will likely be big for the former UCLA Bruin. All that hype from last season has gone away and Felton will have to earn that spot this time.
