Default Early 53 player roster prediction

QB (3): Roethlisberger, Leftwich, Johnson
RB (4): Redman, Batch, Dwyer, Rainey (Mendenhall - IR)
FB (1): Paulson
TE (3): Miller, Pope, Saunders
WR (5): Wallace, Brown, Cotchery, Sanders, Clemons
OL(10): Gilbert, Foster, Pouncey, DeCastro, Colon, Adams, Legursky, Essex, Beachum, J Scott

(26 total offensive players)

DL (7): Hood, Hampton, Keisel, Heyward, McClendon, Ta'amu, Al Woods
LB (8): Harrison, Timmons, Foote, Woodley, Worilds, Sylvester, Spence, Carter
CB (5): Taylor, Lewis, Cortez, Brown, Terrence
S(4): Polamalu, Clark, Mundy, Allen

(24 total defensive players)

K: Suisham
P: Kapinos
LS: Warren

I don't see us keeping 6 WRs if Rainey can serve as RB, WR and KR. I see the last 4 roster spots to be fought among these players:

Wes Saunders
J. Scott
Al Woods
Corbin Bryant
Marquis Maze
Will Allen
Robert Golden
Myron Rolle

The FA pickup I have the highest hopes for is the K brought on to challenge Suisham - other than that I don't see anything else that really stands out as unlikely.

They made C. Batch a new contract for this year and extended Scott so they should be in the final 53. Also I think we might take 6 WR's due to Sanders being injury prone so far. I would agree with most of the list, but damn I hope Suisham isn't on it, isn't there a rookie kicker somewhere with some strength and accuracy?

I don't think they are locked into keeping C. Batch just because of a 1 yr contract. I know we just added the Missouri kicker but he seems to be a headcase.

Just because something is newer doesn't mean its better. I would stick with the headcase that we already know: Suisham then risk it with a headcase we dont know as well.

Weslye Saunders won't be on the opening day 53-man roster since he has been suspended by the league for the first four games of the season.

Yeah, if Beachum can snap fine enough, he stays and Warren goes to save some $$. Then I say we only carry the 9 Olinemen and maybe add another DB or OLB.
