This morning, ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi went through the possible roster casualties in favor of the team’s five draft selections in last week’s NFL Draft. Some of the names could be a little surprising. They include last year’s seventh round pick Trevin Wade, 2011 7th-rounder Eric Hagg, and undrafted free agent Ishmaa’ily Kitchen. “McFadden’s arrival probably would most imperil the roster status of Trevin Wade. Why? Besides McFadden, the new regime signed free agent cornerbacks Kevin Barnes and Chris Owens. Although low-priced, Barnes and Owens would have to be absolute busts not to stick; each received a cash bonus to sign. The other relevant cornerback is Johnson Bademosi and his roster spot is safe because he is the baddest special teams player on the team now that Josh Cribbs is gone.” “If so, Slaughter will be given every chance to win the starting free safety job. The incumbent is 2012 undrafted free agent Tashaun Gipson, who was more impressive than 2011 seventh-round draft pick Eric Hagg. Hagg was given the starting job at last year’s minicamp.” “The most affected players if Bryant squeezes in are Ishmaa’ily Kitchen, a prototype nose tackle who did OK as an undrafted free agent while Phil Taylor recovered from pectoral muscle surgery, and Brian Sanford, a 2011 undrafted free agent who fits better as a 4-3 end.” For the record, when I went through the roster yesterday and did a quick “guestimate”, I had Kitchen and Hagg still making the roster with Wade not making the roster. The article goes on to discuss the offensive line and linebacker situations as well. Related: One Week Removed, More Browns Draft Thoughts
