way too early for this IMO but that's a pretty good guess

i think a different LB will make it other than Frazier, like Woods

McHugh gets the deal because he lines up as a H-back and lead blocker on certain plays. Both players are sure things as far as the 53 man roster goes.

i agree

it's just hard to figure out what players they will keep right now for special teams (backup linebackers, gunners, etc)

Good group. I hate to lose Madison, but it looks like his salary and his ability only to play special teams is going to get him cut. It's a shame because he is a heck of a special teamer.

I have not read one good thing about Bruce Davis yet. I am really pulling for him, but Wexell, Lolley, and Ed B. have all said the he doesn't look good at all.

Pretty good stab at this time of the year. The list looks a bit heavy on the extra DB and OLB's and thin on a backup OT.

I think we will at least see Capizzi or Hills kept on the 53 as a backup OT. Ramon Foster looks like they are trying him at guard as he is a bit slow of foot for an OT.

You are the first guy in a while with only 6 D linemen and I LOVE that!! The Steelers traditionally only have kept 6 D-linemen in the past and I think you are right that its gonna be between Eason and Kirschke for that last spot.

I'd be shocked if they gave up on Davis this year, especially since he was a 3rd round pick. But, if you look at his UCLA hilight reel, he uses his quickness and motor to get to the QB.......but avoids contact with the O linemen. That needs to change before he can contribute in the NFL.

I'm not surea bout Capizzi on the practice squad this year....I will have to check but I think he may not be elgible.

Good job overall.

I think Mundy and Legursky both are promoted off the practice team this year.
