Default Predict the 53-man roster

I know its way too early to call it, much depends upon who performs well in training camp which is still a couple months away. These predictions are just for fun, and to get a feel for how the team will look in 2008. Here is one possible roster:


Offense
T: Brown, Winston, Salaam, Butler
G: Pitts, Spencer, Weary, Brisiel
C: Myers, Eslinger

RB: Green, Brown, Slaton, Walker
FB: Leach, Taylor

TE: Daniels, Bruener, Dreesen

WR: Johnson, Walter, A. Davis, J. Jones, Grice-Mullins

QB: Schaub, Rosenfels, Gray


Defense
DE: Williams, Weaver, Kalu, Cochran
DT: Johnson, Okoye, Okam, Maddox

LB: Greenwood, Ryans, Bentley, Adibi, Diles, Thompson

CB: Robinson, Bennett, Molden, Reeves, Faggins

S: Demps, Earl, Brown, Harrison, Mitchell


P: Turk
K: Brown



What are your thoughts about who will make the team?

Pittman will almost certainly make the team. I know it is tempting every year to get rid of the long snapper but almost every team has one.

They will probably carry more than 5 CB's.

Players in bold are replaced by players in red. In reality, I'd wait until at least mid to end of training camp for any kind of roster solidity.

OL is definatley the hardest to pick..

Simmons is a CB/S. I also think that Wynn is in the somewhere, maybe over Fletcher, as a KR/PR backup.

I also have a feeling that Bentley might not make the team even though we paid him more than Thompson(IIRC).

yeah i know... Pittman is considered a very good long snapper, but last season he did make that bad snap which resulted in a touchdown for the Chargers. Maybe its wishful thinking but Dreesen could save a roster spot if he works out as the long snapper.

possible, might be a good idea especially w/ questions regarding D-Rob's health. I know Harrison played some CB in college he might be able to fill in as the 6th CB in a pinch. 10 O-linemen is a lot, I could see the Texans carrying one or two less in order to carry an extra CB and/or Pittman.

Yeah, it was pretty bad. But--this might be my terrible memory on this one-- wasn't it very windy for that game? That and Turk can't fall the ball!

What happens if Dreesen gets hurt in the first quarter of a game while playing TE? Nothing is scarier in football than not having confidence in your long-snapper, so I doubt the Texans will want to scrimp on a roster spot there. I believe nearly every team dedicates one spot for that position. One bad snap in a year does not a bad LS make.

I don't think it was windy that day, but Turk actually saved us 2 points by not falling on the ball. The way the Charger offense was routing our D in the first half, they would have easily scored on the possession after the free kick. The whole team laid an egg in the first half of that game, and Pittman/Turk did not want to miss out on the comedy of errors.

Yep, cuz if he didn't he'd be on the brink of being cut. QB's like Brink are on the brink of extinction already, so we wouldn't want to lose'em.

And if he performs really well and Kubiak is the magician people think he is, he could be real good. And then he'll have to back that Brinks truck up to the bank.

That would be cool.

Why does Kubes have to be a magician ?

Diles was also on the brink of not being drafted....


Now he's on the brink of starting....

gray is probably going to the practice squad. leaving us with only 2 qb's. thats what has happened for 2 years and it hasnt hurt us yet. so unless he really shines i bet we save that roster spot for some other position.

I'm no genius, but I'm willing to bet Gray is not going to the practice squad.

Kubiak has said he is considering carrying a 3rd QB this year.

D-Rob quite possibly could start the season on the pup list . Im not gonna count him out just yet but it is definately a possibility .
