Looking at the last eight games on the schedule...I'd almost bet that they are going to keep an extra DT this season.

Default Re: Predict the 53-man roster

I was just doing a preliminary cull of players to try and form a 53 man roster and am stuck at 57 players. This team has some quality depth at long last.

That's right, per Kubiak in his recap after Day 1. He mentioned that LB'ers need to be interchangeable when you "keep 5 linebackers or 6" so it may be just 5. He also said in the same interview that there were no plans to move Taylor to FB.
I think Black will be the fourth tackle. I assume they will keep trying Frye at guard like they did at the end of last season but I don't know if he can make the 53 at either position.

WISHING the 53 man roster this far before the season is a complete excersize in futility.

But it gives people something to do in the offseason. If people enjoy doing it, why should you care?

So... Colvin doesn't make the team?

And are you sure Studdard has eligibility?

I knew I was forgetting something. Colvin should definitely make the team, maybe in place of Bentley or Thompson. This is only Studdard's 2nd year in the NFL and he didnt play much last year so Im assuming he does have practice squad eligibility.

Right. The limit for practice squad eligibility is 9 games, and I believe Studdard was only active for 3.

I dunno, does Kula and Cochran both beat out Bullman ? Especailly when Bullman maybe can play either DE or DT in certain situations.

Default Re: Predict the 53-man roster

The battle on the offensive line is going to be interesting. New coach, different emphasis with the scheme and a lot of guys coming off injury.

Assuming that Weary can come back healthy, he would have the experience and talent edge on Studdard. However, from everything we have heard, I think Studdard did a lot to help is cause in OTAs. With Weary coming off injury and signed to a short term deal, this could be a situation where youth and upside prevails. I think we have this luxury, in large part, to the emergance of Brisiel

I can't wait for July to end...

Default Re: Predict the 53-man roster

I could possibly see weary starting on the pup then studdard would make the roster, otherwise studdard for sure gets the ps. I think earl beats out one of the brandons again and colvin beats out kalu or cochran. I think Brown and Molden are the only rookies with a good shot at making the non-ps roster depending on injuries in camp/pre-season. I think RB will be a tough one. pick the best 3 unless slaton is put on the ps. I think it's gonna be a real battle in camp this year to make the team and we could really see alot of surprise cuts. I think if they are all healthy then we only carry 4 safeties and barber on the ps. some good players will have to get cut for sure as we just don't have many "bad" players anymore. Unless he just plain gets beat out in camp we probably keep Faggins for insurance. I hope they make room for Bulman but its gonna be tough.

I doubt Studdard is on the P.S.. First, he'd have to clear waivers and he'd be out there for anyone to poach. Also, I think Frye makes the team. That means that Salaam is gone... We can talk a lot about the depth on this team and what the OL will do this year. However, if Salaam is on the team then the OL isn't very good and neither is the depth.

Salaam has already proven that he can play serviceably at his position in the NFL, which is more than can be said for Studdard or Frye. Im not sure how you can say that Frye makes for a better OT than Salaam. Kubiak even said that they are looking at Frye more as a guard than a tackle.

I'm saying that if Salaam is among the 9 best Olmen on this team in the estimation of this staff, then the Oline isn't where we are hoping it is. Salaam is past his prime, certainly lacks the athleticism to excel in the ZBS at this point in his career, and his play certainly won't be improving from last season.

If the staff doesn't feel that either Frye or Studdard should be kept over him with Alex Gibbs there to tutor them, then perhaps we've overestimated the direction of this organization.

If everyone agrees that 3 tackles for this team are: winston, brown, butler... then I think the combination of Pitts, Frye, Briesel can capably handle the depth chart at tackle if catastrophe strikes.

I'm thinking the opposite. If a guy like Salaam (who has been a starter for 9 of 10 seasons with a 2 year tour of duty under Alex Gibbs) is a backup, you've got pretty good depth.
