Let's update that 53 man bad boy!!
Posted 14 June 2013 - 01:42 PM
RB: Spiller/FJax/Choice (could really use a big back)
FB: Summers (not a shoe in; V. Leach is available)
TE: Chandler/L. Smith/Dickerson/Gragg (could be improved and then reduce 4 to 3)
WR: S. Johnson/Woods/Graham/Rogers/Goodwin/B. Smith (watch out for Hogan says an insider)
OG: Urbik/C. Brown (watch out for C. Scott says an insider)
K: Hopkins (not a shoe in)
DT: K. Williams/Dareus/Branch/Carrington/Troup (could use another athletic big man; R. Bernard and R. Seymour are both available)
DE/OLB: Ma. Williams/Lawson/Anderson/Hughes/Br. Scott (Pough and Blatnick are both good players who make the PS)
SS: A. Williams/Searcy/Meeks (Meeks is on the bubble; AW is the fashizzle)
FS: Byrd/D. Williams (DW can play S and CB)
CB: Gilmore/McKelvin/Brooks/Rogers/Robey/Butler (only an average group; could use at least one vet CB addition; Robey can really cover the slot)

Depends who the receiver is. A team has to put a practice squad player on their active 53 when you poach one. Marcus Easley was very comfortable sitting on the PS for most of 2012.
Stashing any of our new wideouts on the PS is not going to be easy unless one of them pulls a ganubie during TC. There are lots of teams that need WRs.

Don't be surprised if Aaron Williams returns back to CB.
Dickerson may be the H-Back instead of a true Full back. That allows them to retain the three TEs.

Really wish we could keep almost every receiver, whether stash them on PS or something . Too much young, and unproven talent, and it is a bit of a crap shoot which ones will turn out best for us.Like the year we drafted stevie and hardy, the one that works out for us can surprise. I am personally surprised Brad Smith is still on the team. I would rather cut him and have these younger guys develop into something. Brad smith isn't much more than a 4th receiver anyway. And is wildcat is a bummer, and we have enough special team folks
That's true of most teams' fourth-sixth wide receivers.
It's unlikely that they will all develop, and Smith is a proven solid wideout/returner; there is no reason to keep Easley over him, for example.
As for the depth chart, I think Justin Rogers and either Moats or Dowtin get cut.
