Quarterback: This was a tough decision, as I pondered only keeping two quarterbacks. I just keep going back to the fact that Rex Grossman saw a quarter of reps in the final preseason game; I think the Browns want the veteran ready in the event of an emergency. Connor Shaw looks comfortable, but I think he'll make it to the practice squad. Running Back: Way to win yourself a roster spot, Isaiah Crowell. It's not just because he had flashy stats, although that certainly helps -- it's more about that he showed off a very impressive skill set of speed and power.

The Ravens are also actively monitoring the waiver wire and remain receptive to trades to try to upgrade the back end of the roster or acquire quality cornerback depth because of the injuries to Smith, Webb and Jackson. The Ravens have to decide whether they'll keep or cut rookie quarterback Keith Wenning and then try to sign the sixth-round draft pick to their practice squad. Should the Ravens release Wenning, there's a good chance that he'll winds up on another NFL team's roster as the third quarterback. That would mean the Ravens have expended a lot of time and resources coaching and developing Wenning, who's coming off his best performance of the preseason. Wenning completed 8 of 13 passes for 117 yards for a 90.9 quarterback rating Thursday night against New Orleans during a 22-13 victory at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. "It was fun to be out there," Wenning said.

Zac Stacy - Color me concerned with the weak and injured OL, backup QB and the emerging Benny Cunningham . I see a download running back by committee. Rob Gronkowski - He has had zero contact in preseason, but with his upside and dominance, I would take a chance in the fourth round. Torrey Smith - This is the year he explodes, and is in a perfect spot in the Kubiak offense.
