    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.

    Darnell Jenkins makes it or he goes on the PS.

    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...
