I thought Ju'Wuan James was all but written off.

That ship seems to have sailed

I think this roster depth is going to be pretty accurate.

My changes would be minor;

TE:  Gesicki, Smythe, Gray, Derby

LB:  McMillian, Alanso, Baker, Allen, Anthony, Poling

cut:  remove Allen add Hull ( I see Allen size and speed having way more upside than Hull.  I thought Allen performed solid at times last season and with more reps could be an average to above average starter........Allen could prove to be an Undrafted steal.  I actually like Allen better than Anthony )

Looking back at my prediction, I have 10 OL and I'm not sure they'll keep more than 9. If that were the case I'd be torn between keeping Allen or DE Cameron Malveaux who will definitely make someone's 53 in 2018. 

Hull over Allen was close to a coin flip for me so I can see it going either way!

Ya I could see it going the way of Hull over Allen too.  Mainly because while Allen has the physical tools over Hull, Hull has the better instincts in the passing game.

Looks like you forgot the RG position......and maybe I’m missing something but I’m counting 54 even without the RG???

I don’t think we keep 5 Safety’s.  I think Hull or Anthony either get traded or cut and same with Caroo.  Especially since Caroo is now out for knee surgery and not expected back until late August or September........he hasn’t shown anything in games so far and I expect him to be released before the start of the season.

A day or two ago Jesse Davis was announced to be the starting RG.  I don’t see Larsen beating him out either.  Davis has some flaws but he’s a giant for an OG and he’s strong.  He gets good movement in the run game.  Larsen is far less ideal for a RG spot IMO.  He doesn’t get a lot of push but he does seal here and there.  IMO Larsen is more ideal as a center but he is competing for the RG spot officially.

In this video you can see some action from Jessie Davis, mostly in the run game.  Against the Raiders, at the beginning, he is playing LG ( #77 ) and gets a nice late pancake by staying with the DT throughout the play.  Around 8:40 you will see his size and strength, at RG,  just dominate a very good DT in Buffalos Kyle Williams.  He tosses Williams, who actually had a great initial get off the ball, for a key block to spring Kenyan Drake.

Wasn't aware Jesse Davis was already announced starting RG. Good to know.
