    Kubiak plans on using Dickerson as a WR not a FB.

    From the press conference:

    Dorin Dickerson will be a WR
    Trindon Holliday will be a Punt/Kick-off return specialist

    Smith indicated that the Texans do not have enough OT's with three. It sounds like adding another backup at this position through free agency will be a priority for the team.

    Move Dickerson to WR.

    Move Casey to FB (although he'll play TE, too.)

    Put Hill back on as a TE, conditionally. (He might get IR'd early on.)

    I have a feeling not all of your OL will make it through.

    Jeremiah Johnson may get a spot.

    Obviously there will be a couple new additions, some surprises and possibly some injuries that will alter this list by the end of training camp but here is my shot at what we will look like going into game 1:

    Offense: 2 QB, 4 RB, 1 FB, 4 TE, 5 WR, 8 OL

    QB: Matt Schaub, Dan Orlovsky
    RB: Steve Slaton, Ben Tate, Ryan Moats, Arian Foster
    FB: Vonta Leach
    TE: Owen Daniels, Joel Dreesen, James Casey, Garrett Graham
    WR: Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones, David Anderson, Dorin Dickerson
    OL: Duane Brown, Rashad Butler, Eric Winston, Antoine Caldwell, Wade Smith, Mike Brisiel, Chris Myers, Kasey Studdard

    Defense: 9 DL, 6 LB, 6 CB, 4 S

    DL: Mario Williams, Antonio Smith, Connor Barwin, Tim Bulman, Amobi Okoye, Shaun Cody, Earl Mitchell, Deljuan Robinson, Frank Okam
    LB: DeMeco Ryans, Brian Cushing, Zach Diles, Xavier Adibi, Kevin Bentley, Darryl Sharpton
    CB: Kareem Jackson, Glover Quin, Jacques Reeves, Antwan Molden, Brice McCain, Sherrick McManus
    S: Bernard Pollard, Eugene Wilson, Dominique Barber, Troy Nolan

    Special Teams (3)
    K: Neil Rackers
    P: Matt Turk
    KR/PR: Trindon Holliday

    PuP: Anthony Hill

    Not including Hill on the PuP that is 52 players. One extra spot left over, perhaps Shelley Smith can make it, Glenn Martinez as a 6th WR could sneak in, Jessie Nading has a chance as another pass rusher. Chester Pitts is a potential wild card as he could make the team or possibly be another PuP candidate. If Orlovsky looks shaky again (I think he steps up his game a bit for the record) Booty or another vet QB might be a necessity.

    I have to say, that looks really solid to me. Any critiques are welcome, obviously feel free to make your own from scratch. Off the top of my head we might need to find a veteran offensive tackle or a guy that can play both tackle and guard.

    Looks good.. I think Andre Davis makes the team, along with Shelly Smith... and I think Dickerson is practice squad.

    I hope they re-sign Pitts. Shelley and probably Ulatoski go on the practice squad.

    My thinking was that Dickerson won't play any WR this year while he learns but will be a monster on special teams. I think Holliday spells the end of Andre Davis but I could be wrong.

    I think the combination of Holliday and Dickerson spells the end for Andre Davis. He will not be on the roster come 2011 IMO.

    I dont think Dickerson goes to the PS. He makes the roster, one way or another.

    I like how you have it set up. That last spot probably goes to Shelley Smith. I think he is going to surprise some people.

    Hopefully the open spot has his name penciled in. Faneca starting LG, Wade Smith starting center, Antoine Caldwell starting RG. Not too shabby.

    I would cut Ryan Moats... :ohsnap: and sneak in Trindon Holliday on the roster as a RB.

    Slaton, Tate, Foster, Holliday

    I'm hoping Jeremiah Johnson shows up and takes Moats' spot.

    That list looks pretty legit ... I wonder if Kubiak will feel 2 QB's are enough.

    I'd also like to see them find a second swing tackle - at this point they only have Butler who can play both tackle spots. Thats not enough depth IMO. One injury and they have serious problems at the tackle spot.

    I think they both make the roster somehow - Dickerson's versatility and ST play will keep him on an NFL roster for a while.

    He has Holliday on the roster as KR/PR

    Yes I realized that, but having a separate roster spot for a return man seems ridiculous IMO, and I feel like Moats is the odd man out.

    I wouldn't want to cut any of our receivers either.

    What if something came up and you could trade one?
