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.

If you look at my 2nd post in the thread where I listed most likely to make it, I only put 49 players down. So theres room to add 4 more, I'm just not sure which 4 make it yet.

I could see them keeping both Brockel and Hartsock. Brockel has versatility in playing both FB and TE, and Hartsock is a good blocking TE. I think the Panthers are going to run a lot of sets with 2 TE's or a TE/FB combo.

I really want to see what Barnidge can do in the preseason. He was underutilized with Fox and was suppossedly having a good camp last year before he got hurt. He has some speed and has made some good catches this year from what I have read, but we need another receiving threat at TE besides Olsen.

I am excited about seeing how the WR battle shakes out. Hurney mentioned the possibility several times during his interview of keeping 7 guys. I think Smitty, LaFell, Murphy, Pilares, and Adams are locks, and think the idea of keeping 7 includes keeping Gettis and Tutu. I do believe them when they say Armanti has had a good camp, but I think he would be 8 on the list and there's no way he's making it over guys like Pilares and Tutu who are gunners on ST and he doesn't have the receiving ability of Gettis or Murphy.

I also hope Norman and Hogan can both contribute on CB beyond just one of them winning the starting job so that Munnerlyn can return to being the backup PR. I hope Adams can be above average, but Munnerlyn wasn't bad and certainly better than Armanti.

Last thing, I'm really hoping to see some flashes out of Frank Alexander in the preseason. For the people dogging Hardy (and he certainly hasn't made the best decisions off-the-field though nothing majorly wrong), but Hardy to me is a very good option at #3 DE, and he could be a decent #2 DE. It's just been a while since the Panthers had a DE rotation of 3 guys that could consistently get to the QB. Really since 2008 when we had Peppers/ Brayton starting and CJ as the 3rd guy. It would be awesome to see Hardy take a step to be a solid #2 and Alexander (or Applewhite/ Keiser who both showed some flashes) to be that 3rd guy

Me too. We traded next years third for him, so I'd like to have some indication thats it worth it.

I think they will keep Brockel, but not Hartsock. I think you have to cut Armanti. He's just taking up space at this point. His journey is at an end. Maybe he'll get picked up by another team.

I'm glad to see Nakamura has already surpassed Martin. That makes me feel better about the secondary. Still hoping Norman can win the CB2 spot. Hogan as the backup, Munn as the nickel. Butler will probably still make the team as well. Alexander and Chandler are poised to surprise and I wouldn't mind seeing them surpass Hardy.

I'd love to see us get some value for Clausen. If they can't they'll probably keep him.

I'm still pulling for Gettis.

I think you're probably correct. I just have a hard time seeing AE making the cut. I hope he does, if he's one of the top 7 in the coaches' eyes. If not, I hope he catches on somewhere, but he may have to head north.

I think we will keep one of the two in Tauren Poole and Josh Vaughn.
