Getting down to 53 man roster.

You had Keiser twice in the prediction list. Otherwise, it looks solid.

Pretty decent list. Always hard to guess and when your talent exceeds your roster you are going to lose a good player or two. I fear they will keep Clausen unless we trade him for a 7th rounder in 2020. Jared Green is the only player on the cut list that I hope we on the practice squad. You cannot teach that kind of speed.

What strikes me is how many decent players are on the list. Our depth is definitely better than last year.

It is going to be tough to make the last 5 cuts. They are not going to be no-brainers.

Edit: One additional thought...look for them to use IR to stash a player or two. It is a way to keep someone that might not make the top 53, maybe is too valuable for the PS (or is ineligible), but someone they see having a future with the team.

We have 90 now and I feel safe saying these guys here won't make it on the active roster

Almost guaranteed to be cut or practice squad

W.R.'S(7)

1.Brenston Bersin

2.Hubert Anyiam

3.Rico Wallace

4.Michael Avila

5.Darvin Adams

6.Lamont Bryant

7.Jared Green

TE.'S(3)

1.Greg Smith

2.Nelson Rosario

3.Joe Jon Finley

Tackle(1)

1.Lee Ziemba(probably injured reserve)

Safety(3)

1.Jordan Pugh

2.Jonathan Nelson

3.D.J Campbell

Running Back(3)

1.Lyndon Rowells

2.Josh Vaughan

3.Tauren Poole

Punter(1)

we have 2, not sure which gets cut but 1 obviously does.

Kicker(1)

same as punter

Linebacker(2)

1.Kion Wilson

2.David Nixon

Thats 21 total, so that means we will have to part ways with 16 more.

Bubble players not mentioned above

-heres 19 bubble players not mentioned above who may have to go(if you agree with my above list you can keep 2 of these guys and thats our 53)

QB-

1.Clausen

Offensive line

1.Bryant Browning

2. Roger Allen

3. Will Blackwell

4. Zach Williams

5. Jeff Byers

6.Matt Reynolds

WR

1.Edwards

2.Tutu

TE

1.Ben Hartsock- i think they prefer Brockel since he can play TE and FB

LB

1.Jason Phillips

2.Jason Williams

Secondary

1.Nate Ness

2.Josh Thomas

3.R.J Stanford

D-line

1.Eric Norwood

2. Ryan Van Bergen

3.Ogemdi Nwagbuo

4.Nate Chandler- Rookie undrafted DT I have heard Rivera praise more than once

After making the list this does not sound nearly as tough as I originally thought.

replace Capt with Stanford and I would agree.

I don't see brockel making it. Tolbert is that FB that's missing he's just that damn good. He's so versatile that it makes Brockel expendable. I'd say brockel is gone and you'd add a defensive player.

too many players on DL and not enough WRs.

we'll go with probably 8 WRs on the 53 and only about 7 DL...at the most 8. i'd also cut another off the secondary as well.

We'll carry 3 RBs if Tolbert is the FB. I see Tauren Poole making the roster.

No its the opposite. The top half are pretty much ones guaranteed to get cut imo. Then then bubble players are on the cusp.

If I thought all those players are going to make it I would ban myself.

Just for clarity heres my most likely to make it (49) total

TE(3)

1.Olsen

2.Barnidge

3.Brockel(can double as backup FB)

The TE group looks a little weak. Cant believe we didnt get Shockey back...

If Hogan can get healthy, I feel Butler may get axed. The guy fails to impress me

With Neblett out the first four games, I don't see us carrying only 7 DL. That would only leave two back-ups.

I bet we carry at least 8.
