Final 53 Prediction Contest

OK, I know JP has a pretty good thread on depth charts and I'll submit my 53, but how about the rest of you?

We did this last year and several of us tied with 4 wrong, IIRC.

Here's my 53, for now...
QB-2, Brees-Daniel
RB-5, Thomas-Ingram-Sproles-Ivory-Cadet
FB-1, Collins
WR-6, Colston-Moore-Henderson-Roby-Morgan-Toon
TE-3, Graham-Thomas-Higgins
OL-8, Bushrod-Grubbs-De La Puente-Evans-Strief-Tennant-Brown-Jones
DE-5, Smith-Jordan-McBride-Galette-Wilson
DT-4, Ellis-Bunkley-Johnson-Hicks
OLB-4, Casillas-Hawthorne-Shanle-Herring-Wilson
MLB-2, Lofton-Ruud
CB-5, Greer-Robinson-Patrick-White-Johnson
S-4, Harper-Jenkins-Quddus-Amaya

K-1, Hartley
P-1, Morstead
LS-1, Drescher
Obviously, things may change during the week and the final pre-season game so lock down or edit your projections before the final cut down.

The winner gets bragging rights and 1st dibbs on a date with Zooey, who I'm sure is a Saint Fan!!!

Cant argue with you on any point. I might switch out Higgins for Graham just for his blocking ability, then again I don't know how I feel about that.

Re: Final 53 Prediction Contest

OK stupid novice question and probably in the wrong place but... In order to serve out a suspension - does vilma have to take up a roster spot? and if not - if he is out a year does a team considering hiring him have to have him on the roster suspended for a year?

Honestly it makes no sense.... From what I have read they were suspended the first x games of the season... So no they do not even have to be on a roster.

Hargrove was cut by GB, and if no one picks him up his suspension follows the first 4 games regardless.

I'll just cut and paste what Danno said. Does this still leave me a shot with Zooey?

That's just low.

It's not that I'm scared. I just think yours is right so there wasn't any reason to post a different one, it would just look like I was trying to take credit for your list

But who want's to be a falcon fan? So here goes.

QB-2, Brees-Daniel
RB-5, Thomas-Ingram-Sproles-Ivory-Cadet
FB-1, Collins
WR-6, Colston-Moore-Henderson-Roby-Morgan-Toon
TE-3, Graham-Thomas-Higgins
OL-8, Bushrod-Grubbs-De La Puente-Evans-Strief-Tennant-Brown-Jones
DE-5, Smith-Jordan-McBride-Galette-Wilson
DT-4, Ellis-Bunkley-Johnson-Hicks
OLB-4, Casillas-Hawthorne-Shanle-Herring-Wilson
MLB-2, Lofton-Ruud
CB-5, Greer-Robinson-Patrick-White-Johnson
S-4, Harper-Jenkins-Quddus-Amaya

K-1, Kasay
P-1, Morstead
LS-1, Drescher

Just to be different, I just swapped out Hartely for Kasay. I think they'll go with youth over experience but x626xBlack has made some very good points.
