I think Fortt moves to IR, and that we need a 6th WR until Stills is 100% Toon might be on life #9
I would take Edebali over Davis, and Dimke over Graham.

Yeah, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if Stills ends up on PUP and Toon stays. I wasn't thinking about his injury.

Re: 53-man roster prediction (plus PS)

I think your 53 is the safest going into the season. Stills to PUP & Toon sliding in there wouldn't surprise me either. And here's hoping Dimke makes the 53...I will eat my crow later if he flops, but Graham is less than impressive and I doubt there will be any takers if he's cut. And I despise the idea of carrying 2 kickers.

Good job overall.

I am hoping for DD too, and I don't think you use a PS spot on a kicker early in the year. He is either ready or not

Re: 53-man roster prediction (plus PS)

Here's my stab at it, almost positively sure to be wrong...

QB Drew Brees
QB Ryan Griffin
QB Luke McCown

RB Travaris Cadet
RB Mark Ingram
RB Khiry Robinson
RB Pierre Thomas
FB Austin Johnson (Lorig to IR)

WR Marques Colston
WR Brandin Cooks
WR Robert Meachem
WR Joseph Morgan
WR Kenny Stills
WR Nick Toon (I so want to put Hawkins here)

TE Jimmy Graham
TE Josh Hill
TE Benjamin Watson

C Jonathan Goodwin
OT Terron Armstead
OT Bryce Harris
OT Marcel Jones
OT Zach Strief
OG Jahri Evans
OG Ben Grubbs
OG Tim Lelito


DE Glenn Foster
DE Akiem Hicks
DE Cameron Jordan
DE Tyrunn Walker

DT Brandon Deaderick (I'm iffy here, Edibali at LB is plan B)
DT Brodrick Bunkley
DT John Jenkins

LB Khairi Fortt May go to IR, if so Todd Davis fits here nicely)
LB Junior Galette
LB Parys Haralson
LB David Hawthorne
LB Ramon Humber
LB Kyle Knox
LB Curtis Lofton
LB Ronald Powell

CB Champ Bailey
CB Stan Jean-Baptiste
CB Keenan Lewis
CB Patrick Robinson
CB Corey White

S Pierre Warren (Ball to IR, if not Ball gets the nod, Warren to the PS)
S Vinnie Sunseri
SS Kenny Vaccaro
FS Rafael Bush
FS Jairus Byrd

PK Derek Dimke (This is a want pick, we'll probably go with Graham)
P Thomas Morstead
C Justin Drescher


The easily offended are easily manipulated

Re: 53-man roster prediction (plus PS)

Kicker is the big question for me. Age and wisdom over youth and a strong leg.
