5 UDFAs Who Will Make the Cleveland Browns' 53-Man Roster

During the draft, Cleveland cut down their draft selections from 10 down to six, increasing the need for bringing free agents into camp. Heading into 2014, the Cleveland Browns have many holes to fill and undrafted free agents could be the answer to these gaps.

Here are five undrafted free agents who have a strong chance at making the Cleveland Browns' 53-man roster.

Jones may be undersized, but his last season at SJSU cannot be overlooked. Jones hauled in 79 passes for 1,356 yards, making a name for himself. Jones’ physical attributes likely were the cause for him to go undrafted, but question marks at WR will enable Jones to get a fair look from Browns’ coaches.

Philipp earned a name for himself at tackle while at Oregon State, but a move to guard could be in order if he’s able to latch on with an NFL team. The Browns are in need of retooling the offensive line, and Philipp could be an option for a team that dealt four of its 10 draft picks, disallowing themselves to add multiple offensive linemen.

New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan prefers to have a traditional running back on the roster, so it wasn’t surprising when the Browns signed veteran FB Chris Pressley and signed undrafted free agent Ray Agnew. However, Pressley was waived earlier this week, leaving Agnew as the only true FB on the roster. Unless Shanahan allows fill-in Chris Ogbonnaya to assume the role, Agnew has a legitimate shot at making the 53-man roster.

When Snead left Ball State as the school’s all-time leading receiver, his draft status was up in the air due to his stature (5-foot-11, 195 pounds) and speed (4.62 40 time). Snead wasn’t able to impress at the combine, but his consecutive 1,000-yard seasons prove that he is capable making an NFL roster. Snead may have a tough time getting reps in camp due to the addition of Earl Bennett and Miles Austin, but the Browns' WR group is up in the air.

Crowell may have had his issues while at Georgia, but he was able to salvage his career at Alabama State. Crowell joins a crowded Browns’ backfield with Ben Tate, Dion Lewis, Edwin Baker and fellow rookie Terrance West. While Tate and West are considered a lock for a roster spot, Lewis is coming off a broken leg and Baker isn’t considered a true option for Cleveland. Crowell should make a strong run at a roster spot in Browns’ camp.
