I've watched a couple games and have some thoughts on what our roster will look like when we get to cuttin' time.
QB: Ponder, Webb, MBT
RB: Gehrhart, AP (with Asiata functioning as 3rd guy with Todman on P-squad)
FB: Felton, Asiata
TE: Rudolph, Ellison, Carlson, Shuler
WR: Harvin, Burton, Jenk, Arceneux, Wright, (Simpson bumps Burton, Arc, or Jenk in week 4 when activated)
O-line: Meh, this part is boring to me. Fill this in yourself.
Special: Kluwe, Loeffler, and Walsh obviously
DE: Allen, Robison, Griffen, D'aundre
DT: Williams, Guion, Ballard, Evans
Safety: Raymond, Smith, Sandejo, Sanford (I'm off the Blanton bandwagon, he's P-squad candidate)
Corner: Cook, Winfield, Robinson, Bowman, Reggie Jones
LB: Henderson, Greenway, Brinkley, Cole, McKinzie, Dean
This is just based on what I've seen and heard. I did not take the time to plot out exactly how many positions there are, so this list might be a little wrong just based on that.
Practice squad candidates:
Arceneux after Simpson returns, Jones if they keep a different DB, Blanton, Todman, Dean if they keep Mitchell instead, Kerry Taylor, AJ Love, some random OL or DL's (I just don't have any opinion there, not sure)
I've hated on Sanford and said he'll miss the team but he's shown up here and there and I've yet to hear Blanton's name in preseason. Brinkley might not be our starter game 1 if he doesn't shape up. Why don't we have EJ, seriously? He can't be a backup and play SP teams? Are we suddenly deep at corner and safety? WTF that was a tough position to call. Jenk back on my radar after that 35 yarder, yes I am fickle. But when Jerome returns the turk might come a callin'.
Okay what did I get wrong?
