This isn't necessarily who you want to make the opening day roster, just who you think will make it. You can add practice squad players if you want. I didn't (though I am suspecting guys like Tryon, Mason, and Jackson make that roster)

Here's my roster (some surprises, but that always happens with final rosters)

QB: Jason Campbell, Todd Collins, Colt Brennan

RB: Clinton Portis, Ladell Betts, Rock Cartwright, Eric Shelton

FB: Mike Sellers

TE: Fred Davis, Chris Cooley, Todd Yoder

WR: Santana Moss, Antwaan Randle El, Malcolm Kelly, Devin Thomas, Anthony Mix, Burl Toler

OL: Chris Samuels, Pete Kendall, Casey Rabach, Randy Thomas, Jon Jansen, Lorenzo Alexander, Chad Rinehart, Stephen Heyer, Jason Fabini

K: Shaun Suisham

DL: Phillip Daniels, Cornelius Griffin, Anthony Montgomery, Andre Carter, Alex Buzbee, Demetric Evans, Chris Wilson, Matthias Askew, Kedrick Golston

CB: Shawn Springs, Fred Smoot, Leigh Torrence, Cedrick Holt, Byron Westbrook

S: Reed Doughty, LaRon Landry, Vernon Fox, Chris Horton

LB: Rocky McIntosh, London Fletcher, Marcus Washington, HB Blades, Curtis Gatewood, Khary Campbell

P: Durant Brooks

LS: Ethan Albright
bold predictions, lots of people who didnt play last year and didnt get drafted.

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

definately see mathis taking the spot of mix/thrash. We just drafted 2 big stud Wr's so I dont really see the need to develop mix... there is obviously something in his game that keeps him off the field dispite his physical talents

Good point Ecupirate08. I think we're forgetting about Mathis.

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

QB: Campbell, Collins, Brennan
RB: Portis, Betts, Cartwright
FB: Sellers, Schmitt
TE: Cooley, F Davis, Yoder
WR: Moss, Randle-El, D Thomas, M Kelly, A Mix
OL: Samuels, Jansen, Thomas, Kendall, Rabach, Rinehart, Fabini, Heyer, L Alexander

DE: Carter, Daniels, C Wilson, D Evans, Dorian Smith
DT: Griffin, Montgomery, Golston, Boschetti
LB: Fletcher, Washington, McIntosh, Blades, K Campbell, Sinclair, Godfrey or Colvin
CB: Springs, Smoot, Tryon, L Torrence, Westbrook
S: Landry, Doughty, Moore, Horton
K: Suisham
P: D Brooks
LS: Red Snapper

Rogers will be on the PUP list for the first 6 weeks then he will take Westbrooks spot. Thrash gets cut unfortunately in favor of Mix who can do everything he can but is younger and can be a viable receving threat. Schmitt makes it as Sellers backup. We sign a veteran LB before camp. Horton and Moore both make it ahead of Fox. We have 9 picks make the team, the only one who doesn't is the DEnd we drafted, he will make the practice squad.

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

I predict Alex Buzbee has a phenomenal offseason and is Daniel's or Carter's primary backup. Also, I hope we sign a FA CB b/c I am not comfortable with the current corps we have. Also, Blades emerges as a solid LB in place of McIntosh at first, then the eventual replacement to aging Marcus Washington.

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

Here's a pretty good read relating to roster hopefulls.

Im honestly pulling for Jerome Mathis. I like Thrash but I dont see this team doing anything special this year, so Id rather take a chance with a guy thats young and could be a solid return man for us for years to come, then a vetren who provides a little stability. Espicailly considering its a new offense for both.

I imagine Mix making it just because of his special teams play. He always seems to be in the right place

Fox at saftey and Thrash at wr seem like hardest decisions to make for Zorn, imo.

We have the chance to be serisouly young at every position but LB, O line, cornor, and rb if we keep most our rookies/signings. Got to wonder if that will have any influence on making the final roster selection. Wernt we the oldest team last year?

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

QB: Campbell, Collins, Brenen
RB: Portis, Betts, Cartwright
FB: Sellers
WR: Moss, ARE, Mix, Thomas, Kelly, Thrash
TE: Cooley, Davis, Yoder
OL: Samuals, Jansen, Kendell, Rabach, Thomas, Rhinehart, Heyer, Fabini, Lorenzo Alexander, Keary Brown

DE: Wilson, Daniels, Carter, Evans, Robinson
DT: Griffin, Golston, Montgomery, Boschetti
LB: Washington, Fletcher, McIntosh, Blades, Campbell, Gatewood
CB: Springs, Smoot, Rogers, JT, Torrence
S: Landry, Doughty, Moore, Horton

K: Shiuzam
P: Brooks
LS: Albright

Practice Squad: Kyle DeVan, Westbrook, Boatman, Alonzo Dotson, Dorian Smith

Notes: Brenen will probably be on IR, not because he's not healthy but more so the team can keep him around while leaving a roster spot open for a special teamer. Moore might undergo the same fate, but if he's fully healed then I doubt the team would keep him on the sidelines.

Shannon Boatman was released because he failed his physical.

I seriously doubt Kareem Moore is going to be playing CB. Considering the fact that we brought him in as a safety, plus he would be quite a load playing CB at 213 lbs.

I think Mathis makes the team and Cartwright & Thrash get cut. At this point Rock is a special teams player, not even on the radar as a RB and Thrash was a Gibbs guy and is up there in years. It's time for Mason, Westbrook and Mix to become the ST studs. Mathis is a Pro Bowler with blazing speed (assuming he's healthy) so he will be the primary KR and backup ARE at PR.
I thought Smith recently said that Rock is his kick returner next year (and not the guy from the Texans).

don't forget about Devin Thomas as KR. Depending on how he progresses in camp they may use him in that role. If they're willing (realizing you have a new head coach who might change things) to play ARE at starting wr & return punts, they might be willing to do the same w/the rookie if he can contribute immediately as a kr.
