Default 53 man roster prediction after one game.

I know we've already had a few of these, but I thought it would be interesting to do these after each preseason game as a measuring stick of where the team appears to be at... so, here goes mine:

QB: Schaub, Orlovsky
RB: Slaton, CBrown, Moats
WR: AJ, AD, KW, DA, JJ
TE: OD, Dressen, A. Hill, J. Casey
FB: VLeach, (player to be named)
OC/G: Myers, Caldwell, Briesel, Pitts, Studdard, CWhite
OT: DBrown, Winston, Butler, Washburn
K, P: KBrown, Turk
DS: Clark Harris

DT: Okam, Okoye, Robinson, Cody, TJ
DE: Mario, Bulman, CBarwin, A. Smith
LB: Cushing, DRyans, Adibi, Diles, Bennett, CThompson
CB: Dunta, Reeves, Bennett, Molden, McCain, Quinn*
S: Barber, Wilson, Ferguson, (see Quinn)

PS: AFoster, Nolan, Busing, ABrink, AJones....

I think you are close, except I think they may not sign another FB. I suspect they will put Grigsby, Nolan, and Grossman on the PUP and probably keep one more safety. I also would not be hugely surprised if they do not keep a long snapper and have Casey or Dreessen do it. I think Busing may make the team also; I don't think he has any PS eligibility left as he is in his 4th year. TJ also is on the bubble IMHO and may not make the team.

Busing is in his 4th year, right? He shouldn't have any more PS eligibility, should he?

QB: Schaub, Orlovsky
RB: Slaton, CBrown, Moats, Foster
WR: AJ, AD, KW, DA, JJ
TE: OD, Dressen, A. Hill
FB: VLeach, J. Casey
OC/G: Myers, Caldwell, Briesel, Pitts, Studdard, CWhite
OT: DBrown, Winston, Butler, Washburn
K, P: KBrown, Turk
DS: Harris

DT: Okam, Okoye, Robinson, Cody
DE: Mario, Bulman, CBarwin, A. Smith
LB: Cushing, DRyans, Adibi, Diles, Bentley, CThompson
CB: Dunta, Reeves, Bennett, Molden, McCain, Quinn
S: Barber, Wilson, Ferguson, Busing

I could be wrong about Foster but I'm not sure we can stash him on the PS. Someone's going to take him away from us if we do. I really toyed with the thought of ditching Clark Harris and having Casey or Dreessen doing the long snapping but instead, I cut Nading. It was difficult for me to cut Nading. It wasn't difficult for me to cut TJ.

But... that's a LOT of CB's. I can't see any of them we can easily get rid of. Unless we put Reeves on the PUP list to free up a spot for the first part of the season...
