Default Practice Squad?

Alright who makes the practice squad?

Some or most of these guys I assume.
DaMon Cromartie-Smith S
Keith Williams G
John Clay RB
Donavon Warrren CB
Wes Lyons WR
Corbin Bryant DL or Jarrett Crittenton DL
Thaddeus Gibson LB (bring him back)


Crezdon Butler will be signed elsewhere I assume. Wes Lyons is my personal favorite for the PS.

Tyler Grisham has tweeted that he would be signed if available. I think he will be because the Steelers are the only team in football that likes this guy. What is he the Steelers mascot or something. The guy runs 80 plays in the pre-season and gets like 2 or 3 catches. The ball is thrown in his direction and he raises his arms up as high as he can and the ball floats over his head because he has no vertical.

Eh it's pretty close. However I do not believe anyone will pick up Butler so he will be back and probably Tyler Grisham but not Thad Gibson. IMO

Back to the topic...it's being reported that Ivy has signed and Malecki was seen at the facility and will probably sign. I'd love to see anyone of the three Safeties Ahmad Black, Mark Legree, or Shiloh Keo signed. In the end, I expect the following:

LB Mortty Ivy
OL John Malecki
DB Donovan Warren
DB Damon Cromartie-Smith
OL Keith Williams
WR Wes Lyons
RB John Clay
TE Jamie McCoy

EDIT: I guess DE C. Bryant, WR T. Grisham and NT Anthony Gray are possibilities as well

I really like Lyons but he has no chance whatsoever to break onto this team with the talent they have. Of course Hines Ward is just hanging on for another year at most so he might have a chance next year. Bringing Cotchery to the team is what sunk Lyons.
