Re: Post Draft Roster
I'm taking a shot at this... along with some explanations.
QB: Matt Schaub, TJ Yates - I think we still go with only two on the active roster, with Case in PS
RB: Arian Foster, Ben Tate, UDFA - sorry, I don't know enough about the UDFA RB's to take a guess
FB: Greg Jones - Clutts is a bubble guy that will have to show up in STs
WR: Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins, Keshawn Martin, Lestar Jean, Alan Bonner - biggest question is who will be cut to make room for Posey when he returns? Jean or Bonner?
TE: Owen Daniels, Garrett Graham, Ryan Griffin, Phillip Supernaw - Supernaw makes the squad for his ST contributions
OT: Duane Brown, Derek Newton, Ryan Harris, Brennan Williams, Andrew Gardner - with the Newton injury, and youth of Williams, I believe we go 5 deep at OT. Quessenberry & Mondek are on PS
OG: Wade Smith, Brandon Brooks, Cody White - Texans are high on Cody White and don't want to risk losing him on PS
C: Chris Myers, Ben Jones - of course, Jones will be in competition for the starting RG spot
DE: JJ Watt, Antonio Smith, Tim Jamison, Jared Crick - pretty easy
NT: Earl Mitchell, Chris Jones - lets pray Chris Jones is better than we think
OLB: Brooks Reed, Whitney Mercilus, Bryan Braman, Sam Montgomery, Trevardo Williams - Trevardo makes the roster due to his ST play, and Reed stays at OLB
ILB: Brian Cushing, Tim Dobbins, Darryl Sharpton, FA - I still expect a FA to be signed here
CB: Jonathan Joseph, Kareem Jackson, Brice McCain, Brandon Harris, Roc Carmichael - Roc is a bubble guy I think will barely make the squad
S: Ed Reed, Danieal Manning, DJ Swearinger, Shiloh Keo, Eddie Pleasant - sorry guys, Keo will be on the roster again. coaches like him for some reason?
SPECIAL TEAMS (3)
K: Randy Bullock
P: Shane Lechler
LS: Jon Weeks
KR: Danieal Manning - going a bit out of the limb here, but does the drafting of Swearinger give us this luxury? a shame to have such a gifted returner not put to use
PR: Keshawn Martin - will be in a battle with Bonner for this spot
