First 53 Man Roster Prediction

| August 1, 2013 | 6 Comments

It’s been quite a while since I’ve graced this site with a post, but nonetheless I’m back. I realize it’s quite early so I’d like to call this prediction a draft version. I anticipate getting 2 more of these out there before the season starts.

Offense

QB (3)

Robert Griffin III

Kirk Cousins

Rex Grossman

RB (3)

Alfred Morris

Roy Helu

Chris Thompson

FB (1)

Darrel Young

WR (5)

Pierre Garcon

Josh Morgan

Santana Moss

Aldrick Robinson

Leonard Hankerson

TE (4)

Fred Davis

Jordan Reed

Logan Paulsen

Niles Paul

OL (9)

Trent Williams

Kory Lichtensteiger

Will Montgomery

Chris Chester

Tyler Polumbus

Josh LeRibeus

Tom Compton

Adam Gettis

Tony Pashos

That’s 25 guys on offense. Toughest decision 6 WR’s vs 4 TE’s. Ultimately I don’t think anyone stands out for the 6th WR spot. The 4 TE’s are more essential, because you have your locks Davis & Reed as your pass catchers, Paulsen as your blocker & Niles is very important on special teams. But it wouldn’t be a surprise that if Shanny really liked a guy for 6th WR, they could opt to go with 8 OL.

 

Defense

DL (6)

Stephen Bowen

Barry Cofield

Kedric Golston

Phillip Merling

Chris Baker

Chris Neild

LB (9)

Brian Orakpo

London Fletcher

Ryan Kerrigan

Perry Riley

Brandon Jenkins

Bryan Kehl

Nick Barnett

Darryl Tapp

Roddrick Muckelroy

DB (10)

DeAngelo Hall

Bacarri Rambo

Brandon Meriweather

David Amerson

Phillip Thomas

Richard Crawford

E.J. Biggers

Chase Minnifield

Tanard Jackson

Reed Doughty

Now that’s 25 defensive guys as well. Toughest cut, & one that I heard was a match-up is Chase Minnifield vs Josh Wilson. Wilson struggled last season & is definitely on the bubble for a spot this year. Coaching staff loves Minnifield & feels he’s flashed too much to stash him on the practice squad. We’ll know more on this battle in the preseason. Tanard Jackson will likely be reinstated & worked back in the safety rotation. Reed Doughty still proves to be valuable on special teams & a reserve.

Special Teams (3)

Kai Forbath

Sav Rocca

Nick Sundberg

These were no-brainers.

Practice Squad (8)

Nick Williams

Jawan Jamison

Skye Dawson

Xavier Nixon

Marvin Burdette

William Compton

Tevita Stevens

Chigbo Anunoby

Jawan Jamison could be called up at any point, or possibly make the final cut if Chris Thompson isn’t healthy enough to go.

Injured Reserved/Suspended

Adam Carriker

Jarvis Jenkins

Rob Jackson

Mo Hurt stays on roster opposed to Pashos. Wilson makes the roster. Tanard Jackson doesn't.

I think Maurice Hurt makes the roster. He's got versatility at guard and tackle and experience. I'd swap him for Pashos.
