I think we'll go 1 heavier at LB and OL and 1 lighter at DB and WR

Once Burfict comes back one of the DBs will be gone...

 

I think we end up cutting ties with Ogbeuhi. We might pick up somebody cut from another team too

I saw “WR - Tate” and had to do a double take to make sure Brandon Tate was no longer on the roster. Scared me.

Same here. But I'd bet on Cody Core making it and Tate to PS.

 

I fully expect Baker on the roster at DT.

Barring something catastrophic there is no way Chris Baker doesn’t make the squad.

Also, the last WR spot is heavily influced by special teams. Auden Tate doesn’t seem like that guy; practice squad type.

I also doubt Russell makes the team, and Shaw will act as the reserve CB/S hybrid.

And sadly, I don’t see our management completely washing their hands clean of Ogbuehi. Although it’d be nice to see some changes in our outdated, stubborn philosophy.

I don't see 7 receivers.  I would guess Tate  to the practice squad. Photo instead of Hart or Perkins. The 4th running  back is usually for special teams.  Id give that spot to Wilson as the fifth safety instead. I think Baker  makes the team too,  but I don't know who to cut to make that happen. Assuming no injuries, Shaw or whoever is the last corner.

Think Tra Carson makes it. Doubt we go 3 QB. Think only 1 of the rookie CBs make it. Don’t think Carter makes it.

If I were them, I might think about Boling at RT, with Westerman and Hopkins at the G's

I wondered about that.  Maybe there is something to it, as I can't imagine why else they never tried Westerman at RG.  Give the guy a shot, at least.  He can't be worse than Redmond, right?

Right tackle or right guard would make sense. Put someone you know and trust over there.  I think  Boling is  above average at either of those positions.

Honestly, Mark Walton should be cut.  Tra Carson, and Brian Hill are both better runners.  Also, thus far Walton hasn't been good on ST either (if you believe PFF ST grades).

I'll apologize now but you guys are going to hear me complain a lot over the next couple of years about how we drafted a freakin #3 RB in the 4th round over Mo Hurst...

You're willing to cut a fourth round pick after the amazing sample size of 12 preseason carries?
