Predict the 53

Recommended Posts

So much can change at training camp and even in OTA's but I am curious to see everyone's projection of the 53 roster as it currently stands. 

Mine:

QB: Allen, Barkley, Anderson
RB: McCoy, Gore, Yeldon, Singletary, Perry
H-B: Knox
TE: Kroft, Croom, Fisher
X: Brown, D. Williams, Roberts
Slot: Beasley
Z: Jones, Foster
LT: Nsehke, Waddle
LG: Dawkins
C: Morse, Long
RG: Spain, Feliciano
RT: Ford
(26)

DE: Hughes, Harold
3T: Oliver, J. Phillips
1T: Lotulelei, H. Phillips
DE: Lawson, Murphy
WLB: Milano, M. Alexander
MLB: Edmunds, Stanford
SLB: L. Alexander, Joseph
CB: White, Gaines, T. Johnson, K. Johnson, Wallace
FS: Poyer, J. Johnson
SS: Hyde, Bush, Neal
(24)

K: Hauschka
P: Bojorquez
LS: Reid

Some Notes:
* Senorise Perry and Andre Roberts are special team aces and make Isiah McKenzie and Patrick DiMarco expendable
* Dawson Knox is a "project" TE who IMO could excel in year one in a strict H-Back role. 
* Brandon Beane and Dawkins have both publicly talked about him playing at Guard. Nsehke was dominate at LT in a reserve role. I think he has a chance to be a veteran stop gap while Dawkins gets unleashed at LG.
* I wouldn't be surprised to see the loser of Murphy vs Lawson released at summers end. Especially if Daryl Johnson proves his worth for a spot. 
* I have EJ Gaines winning the number 2 battle with Wallace as his backup. Gaines has the most experience with White and the safeties as well as this defense. Kevin Johnson moves inside to work behind Taron.
* Final roster spot came down to Siran Neal vs Deon Lacey.

@marshawn lynch I think yours is closest to mine. Maybe one or two differences. 

RB will be the most interesting position battle, followed by WR. I think we'll end up keeping both Shady and Gore. Singletary will absolutely stay. I think it comes down to Yeldon or Perry.. which depends upon which other ST players we keep. 

I feel like we'll have to keep Tyree Jackson and David Sills, I don't think either guy will last on the practice squad, someone will pick them up. Plus, I think Jackson is a quality #3 development QB who could be an above average backup long-term. He probably won't be active most game days though. 

David Sills must be kept because I think he's too talented and offers a skillset we don't have. I think he's a lot of us can agree he's most likely to surprise us and make an impact, much like Robert Foster did last year. We seem to find one or two of these guys every year. 

Defense is pretty straight forward. It looks really good too. So excited to see how the DL plays with Oliver there and how the secondary improves with some anticipated improvements opposite Tre White. 

The DBs always get mixed throughout the season so I imagine we'll have an extra corner and safety in and out depending on the week.

I would agree @NickChowaniec that the defense is pretty straight forward. I would say we could all accurately guess at least 20 of the players on that side of the ball. 

I would be shocked and pretty disappointed if we cut Gore. Certainly wouldn't help the "culture" that they push so much. I also think Perry sticks because he will be a special teams captain and will be a player Farewell bangs the table for. 

It already appears Sills has become the new Brandon Reilly, Dez Lewis, Landon Cohen, James Wilder Jr. Erik Striker ect ect.

Only difference between Sills and them is that Sills was highly productive and should have been drafted. It is inconceivable why he wasn't. I have him rated as a 4th round guy. Like Singletary Sills was an endzone monster. Even if he struggles at the next level he will have a niche as a redzone threat.

He reminds me of Chris Hogan and David Nelson... Except he is faster and can play outside the numbers

Yeah Reilly had a pretty solid career at Nebraska considering their offense and Dez Lewis "dominated" for his competition. 

The fact that he was highly productive and still not drafted hurts him in my eyes. Everything I have read about him suggest he can't get off coverage and his ceiling is being useful as a redzone guy if he can get better at tracking the ball and able to separate. 

32 teams passed on him over and over again and 28 wideouts, including no names like Scott Miller and Travis Fulgham were drafted should tell you what NFL teams think of him as a pro prospect. Your comparison don't add much intrigue for me either seeing as Nelson was out of the league in 5 years (missing one with an ACL) and Hogan is on his 4th team and is only even a known name because of Hard Knocks and the Patriots. Neither is a pillar of success.
