How many players are usually at each position on the roster? Thanks for your thoughts.
It usually depends on type of offense and defense in use, I would say as an average 3 or so. I think with Kubiak we will see 4-5 RBs and 4-5 WRs for type of offense he will run. You definitely want depth on DL.
Well, if you want to go by Madden....you have a MINIMUM of:
This gives you 46 players you have to have, plus 7 flex (up to 5 max). Teams almost always have at least 5 WRs and at least 5 CBs, giving us 48. Now there are 5 open slots
Dont forget we are probably going to carry atleast 4 rbs
I believe the roster in NFL nowadays is 53 correct me if I'm wrong because I think it changed and added7-8 more.
53 man roster
There is some variation on the 50 non-specialist, the ability to play Special teams matters greatly for the last 4 or 5 for most team. Examples guys like Evans have a "position" but in theory they are really starting special teams players.
Because of the limited spots a guy like simmons who can play all the DB positions and is pretty good on most special teams units, often get a roster spot over a more talented player who is poor at special teams or only plays say CB.
I hate wasting so many spots on TEs. I know they are versatile because they can be either WRs or OL, but it seems like wasted spots to me
I'd rather we carry 3 tes and 6 wrs
Denver started the season last year with 5 WRs. Their #3 receiver was Charlie Adams with only 21 catches all year..... so get used to the TEs and RBs/FBs catching the ball.
Johnson Moulds Mathis and Walter are probably the top 4. Armstrong will be in a battle....Kubiak really likes David Anderson ... then there's Starling and Morgan whose games are similar.
Can't make blanket statement like that w/o knowing which players are involved and the ability of said players to play special teams or do something else. As an example if a TE is good special team player, and is either quick enough to line-up in the slot or can play some FB, then he may have more value than a WR who only can play WR and one unit of special teams.
True, but I just believe we have more strength at receiver than te
Heres my predictions:
QB-3 (Carr, Ragone, Rosenfels)
RB/FB 5 (Davis, Cook, Morency, Lundi, Daniels)
TE 4 (Putzier, Joppru, Bruener, Murphy)
WR 5 (Johnson, Moulds, Mathis, Walter, Armstrong)
OL- 9 (Winston, Spencer, Wand, Wiegert, Pitts, McKinney, Flannagan, Hodgon, Weary)
DL 7 (Williams, Babin, Peek, Johnson, Smith, Kalu, Weaver)
LB 8 (Wong, Greenwood, Cowart, Ryans, Orr, Polk, Evans, Anderson)
CB 5 (Robinson, Buchannon, Faggins, Sanders, Floyd)
S 4 (Earl, Brown, Simmons, Stone)
k 1 (Brown)
P 1 (Stanley)
LS 1 (Pittman)
Where is Payne?!?!?!
i like gtexans roster, but i would rather go with NT Payne rather the LB Evans.
We would be carrying 8 dl's and 7 lb's, but Peek and Babin can both be emergency LB's so in a sense 9 lb's.
Im not sure polk will make the roster, Rainer and Pierce may beat him out.
I have Payne and Wade getting cut for June 1st cap casulties. I think Polk has been solid as MLB backup for a few years, and is a good special teams player. Same can be said for Evans, imo. Theres a lot more competition this year, though, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see
Where's McKenzie at CB?
Behind DBs, TEs are the most injured position in the NFL. Plus TE's often come in two types that should be broken up like RB into HB/FB.
Blocking End and Receiving End. The Blocking TE seems to be going the same way the Fullback is in the NFL.
Guys like TO ( 6'3 226 ), Moss ( 6'4 215 ), and M.Jones ( 6'6 229 ) are really close to being what a TE is defined as: Winslow ( 6'5 250 )
Honestly they should break RB into
RB - Running back
BB - Blocking Back
3B - Third down back
TE - Tight End
BE - Blocking End
You cut Payne and yo uonly have 2 DT's - Smith and TJ. Though I know Weaver and Williams have played the position.
I say they keep Payne and go with 1 less LB.
Polk has a real shot at making the starter at ILB (imo). At the very least I see him being one of our top backups.
You may want to pencil in Antoine Smith at RB, sounds like we may sign him this coming week. I thought they cut Evans and Anderson at LB?
