Looks pretty good 'dude.

I agree with the offense, except Sherrod could be left off with Starks playing the role of 3rd TE. Sherrod has had a decent showing as a blocker though. That would also open the door for Hills if the team is worried about the future at OT and the possibility he may not clear waivers.

The defensive side is where I have some differences. Hoke DT will be on the roster IMO. I would keep him WITH the six you have listed.
I would have kept nine LBs had A. Harrison not been injured, but now I have it down to eight. I don't have Woods or Bailey making the squad, I would add Davis to the group.

Offensively, its exactly what I think will happen, but might see them keep 10 OL with Hills being added.

D-line should have Hoke in as backup NT and Eason getting cut.

LB might go with 8 to make room for the 10 O linemen and it might be Harrison, Wood, Farrior, Timmons, Foote, Fox, Frazier, Davis (I dont think they expose Davis by cutting him)

The DB's are probably set like that, but they could choose to keep 9 LB's and either Madison or Lewis gets cut.

That's what the special teams 3 are....

Bruce Davis is defianately on the squad. So take off Woods and Bailey and add Dallas Baker and that is perfect for what we have Or even keep Woods and kick Reid out!

im thinking mundy and humpal have been intentionally been kept off "gamefilm" in hopes of sneaking onto the practice squad.

they coulda stuck, but players like fox, madison, dixon, lewis make them take a back burner until they develop.

interesting. both lewis and madison making the team, meaning we'd have 10 DBs, at the expense of only 9 LBs

it could happen....

and bruce davis definitely makes the team. he may not do much this year, but will explode like timmons and woodley next year
