Wayyyyyyyyy Too Early Roster Predictions

Recommended Posts

Because predictions are fun! 

QB; Luck, Brissett 
RB; Mack, Hines, Wilkins, Williams
WR; TY, Funchess, Campbell, Cain, Fountain, Rogers 
TE; Doyle, Ebron, MAC, 
OL: Castonzo, Nelson, Kelly, Glowinski, Smith, Haeg, Boehm, Clark, Barton
24 OFFENSE

DL; Sheard, Houston, Hunt, Autry, Lewis, Turay, Mohammad, Stewart, Banogu
LB; Leonard, Walker, Speed, Okereke, Franklin, Adams,
CB; Desir, Wilson, Moore, Rock, Collins
S; Hooker, Geathers, Willis, Farley, Odum
25 DEFENSE

ST; Vinatieri, Sanchez, Rhodes

Last spot is a toss up for me between Hentges (3 TE seems light for this O), Green (if they want to play Banogu at LB), Thomas (if they play leave Banogu at DL)

No Nate Hairston would surprise me. We wouldnt really have a backup nickel without him.

It would  be interesting to focus on and monitor the "bubble" players.  Figure out the "sure things", figure out the empty spots , and monitor the individual races.  

  I'm really wondering which "sure things" won't make it , and who will surprise.  What a crazy , wonderful time we are gonna have in the next few weeks.

  There are so many "bubble players" at so many positions.  Very exciting.  Many of these guys are rookues and 1st year guys, of course, but there is a feeling of excitement and optimism that i havent seen or felt in a long time.  

  This team is fast, confident, physical, and fearless.

Something special appears to be brewing:  Now if we could only do something about that darn calf.

Unfortunately, injuries during the preseason are a big part of determining who gets on the roster and who doesn't.

Other than the fact he played at Alabama, what exactly does Hentges bring to the table?

 

I think he’ll be thrilled to make the practice squad.   But people here seriously seem to think he makes the 53.

 

Is it possible?   Sure, I suppose.   But I think it’s a long shot at best.

Reasonable predictions. I hope Tell makes the team simply because that kind of versatility would be beneficial to schemes down the line.

Hes been making plays all over the place. I certainly never expected to see anything out of him when I went to training camp I didnt even know his name but there was consistently on player making big catches and plays left and right and it was Hentges. Maybe its just training camp hype? its hard to tell until we see him in the game but right now hes flashing so thats giving people hope he makes it to the 53 man.

i dont think they keep 6 WRs, they have a running back that catches a lot of passes and a couple of TEs that do too.  most teams dont keep 6 either

That's what I've been hearing from the various podcasts.  I don't think I've missed a Bama game in years (daughter is a grad) and I never heard of him.  But he fits the Colts requirement as a blocker and apparently he has hands.

The only way they keep 6 is if they feel there is a WR they love so much they don’t want to lose.

You never know with bama, I mean heck their back up RB was drafted in the 1st round. Could have been he was talented but was never allowed to play to his strengths.

Probably missing a couple OL players...so subtract a player or two from other positions.

 

Also, Tell should make the team. Too much athleticism and too risky to have him sitting on the PS.

WR; TY, Funchess, Campbell, Cain, Fountain, Rogers 
TE; Doyle, Ebron, MAC, 
OL: Castonzo, Nelson, Kelly, Glowinski, Smith, Haeg, Boehm, Clark, Barton
DL; Sheard, Houston, Hunt, Autry, Lewis, Turay, Mohammad, Stewart, Banogu
LB; Leonard, Walker, Speed, Okereke, Franklin, Adams,

 

My 53 matches yours, with these changes:

WR: -Fountain

TE: +Ross Travis (this might change to Hentges, but i have to see him first in a pres.game)

OL: -Barton, +Garcia

DL: +Ward

LB: -Franklin

 

I think the decision about last few spots will be hugely influenced by whom Ballard think can clear waivers (so he can be put in PS) and whom he thinks will be claimed if waived. That is the reason why I removed Fountain and didn't include Pascal, I think both have fair chances to clear waivers. At least way better than Cain. Same reason regarding Franklin, Tell and .. the 6th round rookie DE, I can't recall his name right now.

That offensive line is impossible to guess.  We practically get no info except who’s running with what team, and we know they’re gonna mix and match experimentally during TC.  That being said, i’ve got:

 

1) Andrews and Garcia instead of Boehm and Barton on OL.

2) Hentges at TE.  That’s not many differences on O.

3) Sheard goes to IR after making initial cut.  

4) Keep Ward.

5) Adams gets cut and we go with 5 LB.

6) Keep Hairston.

 

Other than that, I’m exactly on the same page.

That’s great.   Very encouraging.   Hadn’t heard any of that. 

 

Except some here here have been high on the kid since the day we signed him.  They saw that he played at Alabama and they’ve gone a little crazy.   He didn’t start for them.   He didn’t even play much for them.   But the Alabama name alone is carrying a lot if weight for many here.   Just my observation.

They keep six if one is a primarily KOR or PR

    • lol I wonder where he thinks Mariotta lands in the QB rankings
    • Agree about the lateral runs. There was a couple times when we just needed short yardage - clearly best going straight down the middle especially with an O-line like ours. Panthers did the same the other night and that cost them big time.   As for Brissett, so far I am pleasantly surprised with him. I thought he would struggle more than he has, not that he has been amazing or anything but he is doing an okay job so far. Hopefully he keeps getting better with more games under his belt.
    • That’s normally how it goes for kickers at the end.  They just lose it.
    • That's three bad games in a row.  I'm not sure what's going on.  Imo, you don't fall so fast.  It's not like he's been losing distance over the years.  He just seemed to fall off a cliff.  
    • This is such a ridiculous post, lol   Allie Cox is nowhere near the receiving threat the Ebron is. Dude hurdled someone in the open field today...dude is a top option in this offense only after Hilton. He may have a bit of an outspoken personality but that has not clashed with the locker room nor his on field performance so it's a very irrelevant point.      Anyways, I'd have to go with Geathers. He makes too many mistakes and is injury prone.
