48. Seth DeValve: The third-year veteran spent most of Training Camp and preseason trying to get healthy.

The emergence of second-year tight end David Njoku, as well as Darren Fells really limited DeValve’s opportunities.

DeValve had five catches for 74 yards and a touchdown after catching 33 balls for 357 yards during the 2017 campaign.

49. Chad Thomas: The one everyone loves to ask questions about because as a third-round pick, he couldn’t get on the field.

Well, neither could Austin Corbett, and he was drafted 33rd overall.

Don’t be discouraged by Thomas’ lack of an impact.  The Browns were in a position to redshirt a couple players this season, and that’s basically what happened with Corbett and Thomas. Thomas still possesses considerable promise.

50. Phillip Gaines: One of the last Browns signed, Gaines joined the team Nov. 7 and joined a secondary that was desperate for help.

Prior to joining Cleveland, Gaines spent the first half of the season with the Buffalo Bills.

51. Rod Streater: The wide receiver got into three games, but only touched the ball once on an 11-yard loss.

52. Juston Burris: Put on the roster halfway through the season after the Browns’ secondary was succumbing to injuries, particularly to E.J. Gaines, who suffered two concussions. Burris played one snap on the year.

53. Carl Davis: The backup defensive tackle played 31 snaps and was credited with one tackle.

54. Tavierre Thomas: Corner played 18 snaps and was given an “average” grade by Pro Football Focus.

55. Kyle Kalis: The St. Ed’s product was activated from the practice squad to the active roster on Dec. 1.  Hard to make a big analysis as he only played 14 snaps.

Next. 5 Browns whose stock dropped in Ravens' loss. dark
