It’s a shame that Anthony Schwartz is on this list at all but he is. Like with Chris Hubbard, it’s about the numbers. I would wager that Schwartz or Demetri Felton get cut for sure, simply due to the number of players at each position and how the Browns will have to make a decision on who to keep.
The reason to bail on Schwartz is simple, the team isn’t very deep at receiver, and Schwartz, at least based on last year, doesn’t make the team better. The Browns needed so much help at receiver that they drafted two, and then signed another in former Chicago Bears return man Jakeem Grant.
Grant will count for the receivers, as he is one, plus Donovan Peoples-Jones, Amari Cooper, and the two rookies David Bell and Michael Woods, and you can see how quickly a team can run out of roster spots.
If the team opts to carry six receivers, then Schwartz should be ok, but if they do that then that means a certain running back is all but gone. So someone that the team is high on will have to go to make room.
That’s the issue with drafting 24 players in three years and keeping all of them. Eventually, you gotta make hard choices.
