It is a long long long way until GB has to set their final roster.

Someone will be injured during this time. Someone will underwhelm the staff. One or two of the recently signed free agents will make a place for themselves. I just wanted to see how the team is going to fit together.

It is really tough to pigeonhole the defensive front 7. They will be moved around so much.

I used the most recent Ourlads depth chart. It doesn't include any of the most recent FAs. For now I will pretend none of them will make the team. As I said one or two always end up making the team. It is possible that Linsley is both C and LS. That will free up a space. it is possible they only go with 2 QB and that will free up a space as well.

Good Stuff WPR, I am doing the same thing, I have my final 53, working on PS players.

I am differing in a few places, especially D-line.

My early bold prediction is Raji and Guion will both be gone by the end of TC.

Neither will cost much if they are cut, I think Ted signed them both as security blankets until the draft was over.

I'm probably wrong, but It's going to be fun watching these young guys compete, and if 2 of them show enough, I believe Ted will not hesitate to keep them.

Will post my roster in a few minutes.

It's really hard without seeing a lot of the players or at least how they actually plan to use them. Instead of just a straight 53 I'll do a list of most likely IMO to make the team so there will be more than 53 guys

Lock
Good Chance
Maybe
Long Shot

QB - 1 of Flynn/Tolzien will make it 1 wont
Aaron Rodgers
Matt Flynn
Scott Tolzien

RB
Eddie Lacy
James Starks
John Kuhn
Jonathan Franklin
Dujuan Harris
One of the FAs

WR
Jordy Nelson
Randall Cobb
Jarrett Boykin
Davante Adams
Jared Abbrederis
Jeff Janis
Kevin Dorsey
Chris Harper
Miles White

TE - possibly comes down to one or the other between Bostick/Taylor
Andrew Quarless
Richard Rodgers
Brandon Bostick
Ryan Taylor

OL
David Bakhtiari
Josh Sitton
TJ Lang
Bryan Bulaga
Don Barclay
JC Tretter
Derek Sherrod
Corey Linsley
Lane Taylor

DL
Datone Jones
Mike Daniels
Khyri Thornton
Mike Neal
BJ Raji
Josh Boyd
Jerel Worthy
Letroy Guion

LB - I can see 1 or 2 of Barrington, Lattimore or Mulumba hitting the road depending on rest of roster.
Clay Matthews
AJ Hawk
Nick Perry
Julius Peppers
Brad Jones
Carl Bradford
Jamari Lattimore
Sam Barrington
Andy Mulumba
Nate Palmer

CB
Sam Shields
Casey Hayward
Tramon Williams
Micah Hyde
Davon House
Demetri Goodson
Jarrett Bush

S
HaHa Clinton-Dix
Morgan Burnett
Sean Richardson
Chris Banjo

30 locks +3 for special teams leaves 20 spots up for grabs between the rest + UDFA/camp body types.

Yeah, I was thinking about this for most of the day. Haven't set anything up but am thinking about how this roster will change out. Nice job wpr.

Buckeye, I was thinking along the same lines with regards to Raji. Might be the end for him in GB, as I think they want more energy and disruption from the NT position. Some athleticism on the DL could be a good thing, as the pure bulk we were throwing out there these past couple of years didn't stop much.

yeah there are a lot of what ifs. Franklin, Janis and a few others. I think Raji may not make the team but I have to start somewhere. I need to see how the others do before I release him.

I think you meant to strike through Michael Hill at RB in your OP. No way that guy is making the team.

ALL OTHER UDFA'S SIGNED NOT ON 60 MAN ROSTER


Just some thoughts and not being critical of the work here.

1) I don't see keeping two true Centers AND a long snapper. If Linsley shows potential at Center and long snapper Goode is gone.

2) Versatile players like Hyde may have to make a Banjo or Richardson expendable.

3) I think it's a real chess game with who ends up on a practice squad. Personally, I see more teams interested in Rogers or Abbredaris (added value as a return guy),
vs. White or Dorsey. When you have to bring a player from PC to Roster I don't see Dorsey or White having the juice to prompt that but could see the other two getting gobbled up.

3) I don't see both Bush and Goodson making the final roster. Just no room for a project AND pretty much ST only player.

4) You got this team very young very fast on the defensive front other than Peppers. Guion, Worthy, and Raji all gone would be exactly the opposite of the experience Capers has been campaigning for. You have Boyd, Daniels, Thornton, Jones , Pennel. Seems like a huge leap of faith on the youth front and just kind of jumps out at me as very risky.

Again, not meant to be critical just initial thoughts on the list of names and how I see it.

I have no clue how the final roster is going to be at the end but here's some guys I have my eye on to see if they're worthy of a spot on the 53...

Jeff Janis-WR
Adrian Hubbard-LB
LaDarius Perkins-RB
Tanner Miller-S
Jake Doughty-LB
James Nixon-CB
Joe Thomas-LB
Kevin Dorsey-WR

Unfortunately none of the cuts was really difficult to make so that means that any injury will put us in a thin position and the depth is not specially good this year :-(

Are you kidding me? I mean, you are talking about a perennial STs ace and veteran insurance policy in the secondary vs. a player who has yet to make a significant contribution going into his 4th season.

I've been a House fan forever. I love New Mexico State. But, not for their football... That's besides the point. House has been a major disappointment to this fan.

BTW, I've seriously thought of keeping only 7 DL, cutting Worthy and keeping the DB Goodson.

We agree to disagree then :)

House played quite well last season, many defended passes and keep pace with some good WRs when needed.

Bush on the other hand is a mistake waiting to happen, always in the worst moments. Even on special teams, too many penalties, too many mistakes. IMO he is a liability.

Bush on the other hand is a mistake waiting to happen, always in the worst moments. Even on special teams, too many penalties, too many mistakes. IMO he is a liability.


Yeah. I recall his gaffes last year, but I feel they were lesser than House's lack of progress.

Maybe I'm being too harsh on House. He did have a sack a pick with 44 tackles and 10 pd

1) I don't see keeping two true Centers AND a long snapper. If Linsley shows potential at Center and long snapper Goode is gone.

2) Versatile players like Hyde may have to make a Banjo or Richardson expendable.

3) I think it's a real chess game with who ends up on a practice squad. Personally, I see more teams interested in Rogers or Abbredaris (added value as a return guy),
vs. White or Dorsey. When you have to bring a player from PC to Roster I don't see Dorsey or White having the juice to prompt that but could see the other two getting gobbled up.

3) I don't see both Bush and Goodson making the final roster. Just no room for a project AND pretty much ST only player.

4) You got this team very young very fast on the defensive front other than Peppers. Guion, Worthy, and Raji all gone would be exactly the opposite of the experience Capers has been campaigning for. You have Boyd, Daniels, Thornton, Jones , Pennel. Seems like a huge leap of faith on the youth front and just kind of jumps out at me as very risky.

Again, not meant to be critical just initial thoughts on the list of names and how I see it.


I see your points, just my first reactions before any of us get to see them play.

It's probably Tretters job to lose, but he can also play other positions, Mike said they want Linsley to only play Center, unless he absolutely stinks it up, he is going to make the team.

I thought about the LS position, again until Linsley can show he can do the job, not smart to dump your veteran right away. Linsley was a G/T early in College, so he does have some versatility there.

I originally had Banjo cut, but the guy has grown every year he has been with The Packers, is a good ST player, and with the addition of Ha Ha, I believe Hyde will stay at Corner.

Normally a 3rd round pick is lock for a position on the 53 man roster, but Rogers is a project, there might be interest in him from other teams, but Ted can protect him by signing him to a contract that is more than just a PS contract, and he always has an option to put him on the 53 man roster if need be.
Abbredaris hopefully will end up as a Packer for a long time, there's a good chance he will beat out White or Dorsey, but at this point I see him going to the PS.

House was the toughest cut, but there is only so many spaces and I see him as the odd man out.

Bush has one more year on his contract, this will probably be his last in Green Bay, these Special Teams Aces seem expendable until they are not there and The Team loses because they give up a huge punt or kickoff return.
Also bush has shown the last couple of years he can play inthe nickel/dime and be effective, it's when he is forced to fill in for a starter who is injured that he gets exposed.

I don't know why, but I just don't think Ted and Mike have a lot of faith that Raji will ever come back to his 2010 level, he can be cut with very little loss to the salary cap, same with Guion, I said in another thread I thought he was signed as security in case the packers didn't get who they wanted in the draft.

Seems every year 1 or 2 UDFA's make the team, I looked them over and chose Pennel.

This is all in fun, hell I didn't get 1 pick right the whole weekend when trying to draft, so I won't be too upset if I am completely wrong with my picks here.

I, for one, would like to see the end of Jarrett Bush...he's been hanging on for years now. We can't seem to find a guy to replace him and that's really hard to believe to me.

Bush offers nothing on defense. I have a sinking feeling every single time I see him trot out there in our secondary. A big play for the offense is almost sure to happen wherever he goes. How he made such a big play in the SuperBowl is still mindboggling to me.

If Goodson can play ST reasonably well, I don't see how Bush sticks this time around.

The idea of getting rid of Goode is great, in theory, as who wants to use a roster spot on that? However, he's been so automatic over the years, that is something Linsley better be perfect at or Goode will stick around again. One bad snap in pre-season, by Linsley, and I don't think Ted Thompson will be comfortable moving on from Goode.

Greg Gabriel at National Football Post thinks Linsley will be our starting center. That'll be a big story in camp about who gets to snap the ball to Aaron and will Rodgers like his butt height and sweat? Laughing

Two new additions to my final 53 prediction. Demetri Goodson at CB and Jake Doughty at ILB... Here's a nice bit on Doughty:

Quote:
2013 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST FIRST TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): LB Jake Doughty, Sr., Utah State,...Doughty, a 6-0, 234-pound senior linebacker from Draper, Utah (Juan Diego HS) ranks third in the Mountain West and tied for ninth in the nation in tackles (10.8 pg). On the season, Doughty leads the team with 140 tackles and four quarterback hurries and is third on the team with his 13 tackles for loss. He also had three pass breakups, two sacks, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery this year that he returned 86 yards for a touchdown, not to mention nine double-digit tackle outings. - Utah State football
http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=97423&draftyear=2014&genpos=ILB

I figure Mulumba might show a bit more promise than Palmer, and both are outside guys, so Mulumba stays.

Jake Doughty plays ILB, and he has had a good amount of success playing the position. He had 9 double digit tackle games for Utah State. Also has proven numbers for the intangibles that we look for at the position with hurries, sacks, passes defensed, INTs, FFs and FRs. 140 tackles is nothing to sneeze at. Chris Borland had 112 last year, but he had more solo tackles... Doughty had very similar #s in 2013 to Borland and his numbers are way better than those of Christian Jones CHI UDFA, Max Bullough HOU UDFA, Yawin Smallwood ATL 253, and Lamin Barrow DEN 156 - some of the bigger names from the 2014 draft. Shane Skov went to SF as a UDFA. Skov's 40 time is 5.09. Doughty's 40 time is 4.5 and he had 31 more tackles and the same TFL.

Doughty is kind of a dark horse, but I think he could make it as a decent backup ILB. It is the one position where we could use a bit more depth, and we can use Brad Jone's cap savings to throw at re-signing Nelson and Cobb. Plus, I want to see Doughty take out the Kicker on the next onsides kick we face...

Laughing

uffda, I think we have to keep Jarrett Bush around. He is just too good on STs. And, Goode has maintained a solid spot as a specialist for years, but if Linsley can do that job, he could make Goode expendable and save us an important roster spot. It would go against their normal mindset for specialists, but maybe that actually happens this year.

I love the yearly will he or wont he regarding Bush. Hey... he was pretty helpful in the Super Bowl guys. Hate to say it but he may be one of the most valuable players on this team from a depth standpoint. *hides in corner*

Right? I mean, his punt coverage is exceptional. Being able to pin teams back deep is so valuable, and he always seems to find the right spot near the goal line.

And, his INT in the SB was HUGE!!!!!!

What do you do if Linsley wins the starting center spot? You're going to have your starting center as your long snapper? What if he gets hurt playing center? Then what? Who is snapping it then? Can you imagine in an important game, Linsley breaks his leg like Sherrod, and Crosby needs to hit a 30 yarder for the win, and we have to trot out someone to snap who isn't very good at it, and the operation is messed up and we lose? I don't think they're going to do that. If Tretter wins the center job, then Linsley as a backup and long snapper makes more sense. Goode offers NOTHING anywhere else but snapping so it would be nice to free up his spot.

As for Bush, he is my least favorite Packer. I'd rather watch the ball roll into the endzone punt after punt than to have him on the roster for fear of him having to play in the secondary. So hopeful that Goodson, or ANYONE, can finally displace this guy. No need to be spending what we're spending on Bush. Find a rook and set Jarrett free.

The problem with getting rid of Goode is the guy has had a ton of snaps and has been money every time. You can't just take that for granted. The dude has been perfect his whole career.

Absolutely... he's sticking unless someone else shows to be flawless who isn't one of our starters.
