The Cleveland Browns are days away from contracting their final roster for 2019, and if these predictions are correct, there will be a few surprises.

Finally, in about a week, the most anticipated Cleveland Browns’ season since Bernie Kosar graced the cover of Sport Illustrated will be upon us.

Expectations  are through the roof. Some are calling for a Super Bowl appearance. Others want to see double-digit wins, while some don’t care about the record, they just want to see a playoff berth.

But who will be on the  roster when the Browns host the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 of the regular season?

The Browns had over 90 players working out in Berea during Training Camp, but there are only spots for 53 players on the final roster, in addition to five practice squad slots.

It wasn’t that long ago that roster cuts came in waves, but the way the NFL is set up now, players from every team are axed on one massive cut day.

That in mind, the Browns must have their roster down to 53 players by Saturday at 4 p.m. Of course, general manager John Dorsey will be active searching for potential diamonds in rough released by other teams.

But of the players currently on the Browns roster right now, here’s who makes the cut for Week 1.
