Ward is not a DE, he's a 3T in our system.

I like your list. but believe Ross will be a TE on this team

 

I also feel like we still need an additional RB and NT to complete the rotation for this crew.... and real depth at LT just in case AC gets hurt

 

I guess you dont think Mohammed will make the team?

I would be amazed if Campbell was our #2 at anytime in the first half of the season.

 Why does it matter who the 123 WR. We  are going to have three on  field a lot and luck will hit the best target. He isn’t going to care who is 123.

I would be shocked if he's not the starter at 3T. He was balling before he got hurt.

He has him listed as a #3.

 

Funchess is listed as #2 WR

He will definitely be a key part of the rotation

I hope Ross can stay healthy, if so he makes the team.  They’re high on the big RB Williams, I think they carry 4 even if it’s not him.

Pre-season adds are bound to happen at the thin RB position, IMO. 

 

Amongst FAs still available, Jay Ajayi and LeGarette Blount are primarily between the tackle runners that offer little in the receiving game, the only one that can offer a bit more on the receiving side in a rotational role is Bilal Powell, who I still think is a good back.

With it being uncertain that Doyle will respond well to his hip surgery when he is back in the line-up, I am thinking TE is currently our thinnest position.  Followed by RB (though, if healthy, I think Mack, Hines, Wilkins is a formidable trio).

 

Sounds like the Hale Hentges from Alabama is one of the best blocking RB's in the draft, but he's only had 11 catches (6 for TDs) in the past 2 seasons.  Mo Alie-Cox I think has good potential, but I'm not totally sure he's ready to be the #1 TE if Doyle has any hiccups in his recovery and something happens to Ebron.  Especially because Reich really likes the 2 TE sets.

 

I wonder if Funchess, with his size, will at times be playing almost a hybrid TE/WR role.  

 

For sure, though, we're going to see many more moves between now and week 1.  I just hope we stay healthy and if we're dropping guys from our current group it's because we found a better player on waivers or through trade/FA rather than due to the injury bug.

They are very high on George Odom and you don’t have him listed as a Safety I think he makes the team over Kindred.

It's a misnomer anyway.

 

There were plays last year where we only had one WR on the field and it was Pascal.

 

There might be plays this year where we only have two WRs on the field and it's TY and Campbell, or it's Funchess and Pascal, or any combination of WRs.  It doesn't matter where they're listed on the depth chart, it matters how Reich is going to use them for specific plays.

It is amazing how much better this roster is as opposed to where the team was a year ago. I fully believe there will be additional FA moves to strengthen it even further.

The back end gets tricky. There is a lot more talent this year than last year. 

 

I think Ward, Lewis, and Autry are all kinda interchangeable so I wanted to get one of them as a backup DE so they could get some more reps. I think we are going to see a lot of different combos on the D-line. for instance I would be happy with any of these Autry/Ward/Hunt/Sheard     Houston/Autry/Ward/Turay   Ward/Lewis/Autry/Houston   Banogu/Ward/Stewart/Sheard. 

 

Odum, Ross, and Mohammed could make the squad. We are going to be cutting some good players in my opinion unfortunately. 

 

WR wise in order I think it'll be Hilton/Funchess/Campbell/Cain/Pascal/Rogers

 

Everyone else feel free to make one. I would love to see them to compare please!

CB -Ya Sin*, Wilson

 

 

Here is my way too early projected 53. I merged TE, OL, WR 'cause it's easier for the eye to read. There are usually no clear cut designated roles anyway. Added a few names in parenthesis who might replace the guy listed last (or might make the roster as +1 at that position if they decide to keep one more there).

 

Offense:

QB - Luck, Brissett (2)

RB - Mack, Hines, Wilkins, UDFA (Williams) (4)

WR - Hilton, Funches, Rogers, Campbell*, Cain, Pascal (6)

TE - Doyle, Ebron, Ali-Cox, Travis (4)

OL - Castonzo, Nelson, Kelly, Glowinski, Smith / Clark, Haeg, Boehm, Webb (Garcia) (9)

 

Defense:

DT/NT: Hunt, Stewart, Autry, Lewis, Ward (5)

DE - Houston,  Sheard, Turay, Muhammad (4)

LB - Leonard, Walker, Okereke*, Banogu*, Adams, Franklin (Speed*) (6)

CB - Desir, Moore, Wilson, Ya-Sin*, Milton, Tell* (Jalen Collins) (6)

S - Hooker, Farley, Geathers, Willis* (Odum) (4)

 

Spect team:

Vinny,  Sanchez, Rhodes (3)

 

PS:

Fountain, Green*, Barton*, Patterson*, Speed* (Franklin),  (Odum), (Tell* if Collins is in), Philip Walker (or Kelly)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

So regarding the rookies, Campbell, Okereke, Banogu, Ya-Sin, Willis, Tell and an UDFA RB will make the 53, the rest will go to the PS, along with a few UDFA-s. I took only 4 DE's - which is less than the Colts normally would - because Banogu, Ward, Lewis will all play DE in certain situations, so there will be 5-6 guys playing at DE in rotation. They are just listed at different positions.

 

There will be some serious battle for spots at WR, LB and CB. (Milton will probably make the roster because he is a terrific gunner in spec team. So there's only 5 spots - max - remaining there.)

    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway. 
    • Humility is on the path to enlightenment...   Some-ish like that...   I try and remind myself daily lol
    • Ha, ha, ha.....whatever psyche job Reich wants to use. Brissett must be mentally fragile.
