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!

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.)

    • Good point.  I think this has serious merit 
    • My take   1. We overachieved last season. Period 2. We played at KC 3. TY limited the offense because he was so injured.  4. We played a very very good coach with time to prepare and his guys got some rest too and time to scout the team. Remember, Reich is well known to Reid as well by now.  5. Not having Hooker really mattered 6. Play calling was a bit blah 7. How does Vinny automatic miss those kicks? 8. A strip sack for us turns into a strip sack for them a few plays later, that hurt.  9. A young team who wasn’t supposed to be in the playoffs, let alone a second game in the playoffs had some factor here.  10. KC had a pretty good team   my concern from that game would be how poorly our run game was going forward. Kelly better play better than he did this season or I don’t see a 15 million/yr contract coming his way in Indy. I think with a healthy TY, the additions of DF and Cain and Paris and others should really boost that offense. An offense with TY, Paris, Doyle, EE and Mack, now that’s gonna be a tough group to match up with and defend. Run or pass, heck coach, idk what they are doing lol.    Gonna be fun to see this team evolve and have better back ups coming off the bench. I just hope we have enough beef in the middle to stop the run and I just hope that Kelly was hobbled in that KC game because it was one of his worst games that year. 
    • This again boils down to you hanging on to 'this is how it's always been done.' And you don't get that I don't care about that rationale. I think it can be done better. Which is why, in my first post in this thread, I said "to me, it's a no brainer." To me. It should be obvious that this is my stated preference, not me saying that teams that don't do it this way are stupid.   There should be nothing more that I have to say about that, except you continue to rely on that appeal to authority, and I'm telling you that 'how it's always been done' isn't legitimate reason for not examining potential alternatives. Not just in this area, but in everything.      You're missing an important detail, and I think it's because you've put my argument in a box and are unwilling to actually examine it on its merits.   As I said initially, and have said since, my argument is to make this change six months sooner, not six months later. "Imagine if we had fired Grigson in June 2016 instead of January 2017." Did you miss that part, again? What about "if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine..."?    I want him in asap. You want him asap, but not until January.   My statement about it being just one draft is referencing the worst case scenario, which is 'we just blew a draft cycle by letting a lame duck GM stay,' to which I say 'get over it, I'm okay with that if that's what it takes to get the guy I want in the building, with the staff he wants.' And that's where my argument about it potentially being easier to interview candidates in the down season after the draft is critical. The Jets wanted Joe Douglas; he evidently didn't want to entertain a move during draft season, but jumped at it in May/June. (There's the matter of moving his family during the school year, etc.) In theory, this approach could make it easier to interview good candidates. Whether you agree with that or not, whether it's important to you or not, this is mostly an aside. As I said, this was my response to the alarmist reaction of 'they just blew a draft!' Which I think is overstated, especially in the Texans' case.     Not at all. Again, if Ballard started in June 2016, he theoretically could have changed coaches a year sooner.      This is a hindsight fallacy. Go back to the Texans wanting to hire Caserio. I'm not arguing that he's going to be a great GM, I'm arguing that he's the guy they want to hire, and he's available in June. Same for the Jets and Douglas. The Chiefs and Veach.    We know that every person hired doesn't succeed. I never argued that they do. That's true of whoever you rush to hire in January. The point is that there is always a pool of qualified candidates from which to choose. I won't be retracting that, I firmly believe it, and I said it when the Colts were interviewing coaches in 2012, when they interviewed GMs in 2017, and when they interviewed coaches in 2018. You choosing to reject that is pretty ridiculous, to be honest. There are always qualified candidates. Choosing the right one is a different story.   And again, if there's one guy you really, desperately want, why wait until January to get him?     You could give me the benefit of the doubt and assume that if I'm saying it, I mean it. Especially this far into the discussion...    And going back to what I said earlier, this is and always has been my opinion. I'm not offering studies and conclusive evidence to support this opinion because it's a personal preference, it's what I think would be best (although I have offered evidence and rationale to support my opinion, you've just chosen to reject, for reasons I don't agree with).    I'm okay with the disagreement. What I find personally off-putting is the insistence that, because you don't understand my angle, it means I either haven't actually thought it through, or I don't actually believe it. As I said earlier, I understand that general consensus disagrees with my viewpoint, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to conform. The fact that I'm presenting an argument in earnest should be enough.
    • I'm an Iowa fan but I'd kind of like to see Michigan win that game so that it can maybe move back towards the appearance of a real rivalry.     That is unless an Ohio State victory would somehow help Iowa, in that situation I would root for the Buckeyes.
