Predict the Opening Day Roster

Now that the draft is complete, we have a pretty good sense of our team. So, while it's early, predict the 53-man opening day roster for the 2008 Washington Redskins. Please note this is opening day (hence why you don't see Carlos Rogers on my roster below).

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

K: Shaun Suisham

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

CB: Shawn Springs, Fred Smoot, Leigh Torrence, Justin Tryon, Byron Westbrook

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

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

P: Durant Brooks

LS: Ethan Albright

KOS: Derrick Frost maybe

Obviously, since last year, hopefully they will keep a couple extra O-linemen as I did.

No Moore or Tyron?

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

Well I'm not sure what Moore's status is with his upcoming surgery, so for now I kept him off the opening day roster.

As for Tyron, I decided that Holt and Westbrook would beat out Eubanks and Tyron for the final CB spots with Tyron going to the practice squad and Eubanks getting cut.

He was the punter / place holder for GT in collage. So to answer your question yes.

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

I think both Tryon and Moore stick.

JLC had the Skins pegged for being in love with Moore, I can't see them letting him go. They wouldn't have picked him if they were concerned about injury stuff. He'd beat out Vernon Fox and Chris Horton for a roster spot, if it came down to it. I think he'll also challenge Doughty for a starting job before the season is over.

As for Tryon, he's got a lot more speed than the other CBs fighting for a spot, and he's been a very physical CB in college. He's exactly the kind of CB that Blache will love. He'll be our nickel until Rogers comes back.

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

And Frost is definitely a goner. This kid Brooks can really hit it.

Frost's numbers haven't been half bad the last few years, but I mean God, how many times did he friggin shank it and just get absolutely lucky on the roll? Seems like every short shanker ended up rolling another 20 yards. I can't remember one of those little shankers bouncing back against the Skins' favor. Frost's numbers could easily have been worse, he's too inconsistent. Brooks will beat him out.

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

I like SeanTaylor21's roster except I think Frost is definetly gone. Also I think Yoder and Thrash are going to need to battle a FB for the last spot. I don't think we are going to keep 6 WR's, 3TE's, and ONE FB. I see Thrash not making the team this year since having three TE's seems more logical than 6 WR's, I think MIX will take Thrash's ST's spot.

Also, I could see Godfrey coming back one more season and Gatweood on the practice squad.

I don't think we will have 6 WR on the roster but I have to agree with everything else.

Eric Shelton was picked by the Panthers in the 2nd round a few years ago. He's a big back, but he also looks like a big bust.

Yeah I was going back and forth on that one. I don't think Godfrey is back, but at the same time Gatewood isn't really a viable replacement if you're looking for a run stuffer. Makes more sense to keep Khary Campbell.

But either way, I threw some twists in the roster just to keep things interesting

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

I think it may actually be minicamp that Moore will miss, not training camp now that I think about it.

By the way, I certainly hope Mason beats out Shelton for a final roster spot at the RB position

Re: Predict the Opening Day Roster

Didn't we also pick up J.Mathis the kick returner from the Texans . So unfortunately i don't see Thrash or Mix making the team. Which will be a shame , Thrash is good on special teams and Mix was ok and extremely cheap.
