Early Roster Prediction – Defense and ST
August 7, 2009Posted by on
Here are my defensive 25:
DT -6- Pryce, Ngata, Gregg, Bannan, Edwards, McKinney
DE/OLB -3- Suggs, Kruger, Barnes
LB -6- R Lewis, J Johnson, Gooden, J McClain, Ayanbadejo, Phillips
S -4- Reed, Landry, Nakamura, Zbikowski
CB -6- Washington, Foxworth, Rolle, Walker, Webb, Carr
And my ST 3:
K -1- Gano
P -1- Koch
LS -1- Katula
With the defense, the last spot(s) will be contested at every position except for safety. Linebacker, corner and DT will be tough decisions for the coaches to make. I could see decent players like Burgess, Martin, Oglesby, and Divens not make the team.
I think Gano will win the kicking competition because he’ll be accurate enough and better at kickoffs. They could end up keeping both kickers which would screw up everything with my predictions, but again I expect the number of players at each position and on each side of the ball to fluctuate as camp goes on.
