Final 53


Recommended Posts

We're only 5 days from having to be down to our final 53. 

I am going to guess we'll keep 50 or 51 of the current 80.

With the trade of Perryman our depth at LB spot just got razor thin and I wouldn't be surprised if we sign one or two from team cuts.

I also think that, depending on who is available, we'll sign a LT.  IMO it will be an aging vet that we might get some use out of until someone is ready to take over the LT spot permanently. 

I think of the 11 draft picks. Fletcher and Hoskins are destine for the PS.  There is no way Smith or Nixon stick on the PS.  Some team will nab them.

Nixon hasn’t done much other than a couple of interceptions in a practice. Shi Smith has been fun to watch and Steve Smith has been talking him up along with Marshall. Shi looked good at Senior Bowl week as well and I was shocked he dropped to the 6th round. I agree, he would get signed off the practice squad by at least half the teams in the league in my opinion. Not that it matters.

Shi smith is a keeper…so is Nixon

I will be curious to see if we even bother putting Fletcher on the practice squad. What value would he actually add to any practice? 

I do think we will try and stash some WR's that will get poached. We seem to be relatively deep there, so at least one WR needy team will probably give one a try, I predict.

Nixon makes the team-Hoskins to PS.

Smith makes the team as the #5 WR and possibly a returner. Smith will earn pt as he develops.  Depending on what we do about Moore, Smith could be the slot #3 WR by next season.

I don’t think I can ever remember a training camp/preseason where we’ve seen so little from the team. We have to go from 80 to 53 and I can’t even make a prediction because I don’t think I’ve seen the majority of these guys touch a football.

I mostly agree. I hate to stash Hoskins though

 I think he will get picked up of we do. I would like to keep him. He has made plays against the pass and the run in preseason.

I don’t Bonnafon makes the team. With Cannon being able to play rb, wr, special teams

I’m terrible at predictions anyway, but our 2/3s have got all the playing time in the last two games (hence all the complaining about not playing our starters) for this very purpose, so our staff should have a very good idea
