Predicting The 53 Man Roster

Good Morning Folks! I've been lurking around this site for a while and finally decided to start posting.

Every year around this time I like to sit down and try to figure out what our 53 man roster is gonna look like, so here goes my best attempt at predicting what the 2011 version of the saints is gonna look like.

QB (2)
Brees
Daniel

RB (4)
Thomas
Ivory
Ingram
Sproles

FB (1)
Hall

WR (6)
Colston
Moore
Meacham
Henderson
Roby
Arrington

TE (3)
Thomas
Graham
Humphreys

OL (8)
Bushrod
Evans
Tennant
Nicks
Stincomb
Streif
Brown
G/C Free Agent (I hope its Kreutz)

DE (5)
Smith
Brown
Jordan
McBride
Gallette

DT (4)
Ellis
Rogers
Franklin
Johnson

LB (7)
Vilma
Shanle
Wilson
Casillas
Herring
Dunbar
Ingram

CB (5)
Greer
Porter
Robinson
Washington
Patrick

S (5)
Jenkins
Harper
Oliver
Reis
Amaya

Specialists (3)
Hartley
Morestead
Drescher

Practice Squad / IR
Nate Bussey LB
Mike Smith T
Ryan Taylor C
Montez Billings WR
DeAndre McDaniel S
Sean Canfield QB
Swanson Miller DT
Tyler Lorenzen TE
Greg Romeus IR

Tough Cuts (May End Up on Roster in Case of Injury)
Lynell Hamilton
Prioleau (between him Reis and Amaya for final spot)
Danny Clark
Charelston (Not Resigned)
Heath Evans (Not Resigned)

Well, there you have it. Feel free to make your own!

With Smith suspended and Ivory probably hitting the PUP, that opens 2 spots. McDaniel(just b/c someone will probably scoop him up quick... won't make it to our P/S) and Romeus to fill in. I'm okay with carrying 3 backs to start the season.

Til just now, I had no idea who Drescher was.

Looks good... and welcome to the site.

Looks about right maybe a couple changes. I just don't see the Saints keeping Alex Brown we can save that money and use it for another player.

What about the UDF WR Fayson? He's apparently been one of the standouts during the first days of camp. He might even have the skill set to make AA expendable. Although I can't testify to any of this personally... just hearsay.

As much as I'd love to re-sign Heath, I just don't see it in the cards. Heath can do everything, but he's older and has a higher price tag. I think we want more of a pure blocker to clear out space for our new power running game.

No idea what ever happened to Eckel, pretty sure he cut before last season.
