I think Pugh makes the roster. Gomes doesn't

And so you don't have Carriker making it either then?
I went off the belief Carriker will start on PUP, he would be active after the 6 weeks.

Good point on Jamison.

I agree, with the caveat that we had no 1st round pick and no cap room so adding a new instant starter was difficult to do this offseason.

Still, the continuity is a good thing.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

I'm sure Jordan Reed can take Paul's spot on the roster, all he has to do is catch the ball and do a decent job blocking.

Hank needs to step up this year.

I agree. We became a playoff team partly because we became a strong running team and discovered the strong run blocking from Paulsen and Paul.

Paul makes the team. I think Paul as he has every season, will find another gear and step it up even more this year. The dropped passes will be a thing of the past. LAst year was his first as TE. Give him a chance. He combines athletic skill with punch you in the mouth physical play. Keeper/

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

No joke, I just checked in to see if anyone made the "predict the 2013 roster thread" so I could get a jump on y'all.

Well played, CRedskinsRule.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

It is nice to be confident on about 47-48 spots. Knowing we're generally talking about almost all depth positions is good. Outside of the secondary of course which can only get better...right?

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

I see both CRR and CultBrennan have either Henderson or Stallworth making the final roster. If they're way better than the UDFA WRs we signed, I'm fine with it. However, I would rather have Dawson or Lewis make the roster, because of age and potential. Whichever of these makes it will most likely be at the bottom of the list for depth anyway, so it really doesn't matter.

CB I'd take out Henderson and put in Paul but other than that I agree.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

My thought on the TE situation is that if the Redskins were going to give up on Niles Paul, he wouldn't have made it through last year, when he was just taking up space on a playoff roster. He'll stay one more year. Although changing ST coaches from Smith to Burns probably hurts him.

Keeping 4 TEs kind of hamstrings the roster composition of this team, as so much as you can hurt the roster composition keeping a versatile player (not much). I think they are going to give Haslett his full 25 spots, so the extra spot has to come out of somewhere, either WR or OL. The top four receivers from last year will stay, and I think Robinson makes it over Henderson because they run similar routes, but Robinson can get behind the defense allowing Griffin to out throw him.

I have a feeling that they'll make a spot for Stallworth as the sixth receiver, but if I had to make the prediction today, he'd be on the outside looking in. As soon as a guy (at any position) goes down, they'll swing it so Stallworth makes the team.

That leaves nine spots for the OL, which is really more than the Redskins need (and more spots than they'll finish the season with), but I think they'll cut down to just nine for Week 1 so that they can keep Compton without having to start him. That, and I think that Gettis and LeRibeus are on scholarship for one more season. Polumbus should beat out Hurt as the swingman, which means it's Hurt vs. Pashos for the roster spot at RT.

This post is already a disaster to follow (I'm rusty) so I'll just continue with the defense. If you've gotten this far, bless your soul.

No idea what is going to happen with the defensive line. Starters are obvious. There's typically no reason to roster 3 NT's, but they have to because they don't have enough depth at DE to play in the sub packages. So I think they'll keep Neild and Baker, as both can get after the passer better than some of our ends. I don't think Golston is a lock, but if Carriker gets waived or IR'ed, he's on for sure. I think they'd be willing to keep just six defensive lineman, but again, not if Carriker is one of them, just too much uncertainty there. Brace or Merling will have to stand out, because I could see that spot going to a UDFA or training camp signing. I'm betting on Merling right now, but do see him getting jumped by someone before the final cutdowns.

Rostering 6 DL means 9 or 10 LBs, which is a better use of your roster space. Fletcher, Riley, Orakpo, Kerrigan, Jackson, Robinson are locks. Jenkins will make it. I think there are plans to get 3 OLBs in the field in sub packages, which means that they'll need 4 to 5 active OLBs every week (good for Darryl Tapp). They can skimp on the inside if they want to open the season with just 3 ILBs, but they'll be going through a majority of the season with four, which is probably good for Vic So'oto or Bryan Kehl (I think So'oto is better).

I'd really like Rodrick Muckelroy and for all the talk about Minnifield's health -- or lack thereof -- Muckelroy is a higher upside talent who just doesn't seem to have the ability to stay on the field for more than a month at a time.

They kept 10 DBs last year, but will probably cut down to 9 this year. Wilson, Crawford, Hall, Amerson, Biggers at corner, and Meriweather, Doughty, Thomas, Rambo at safety. Recent comments by Haslett would lead one to think that they probably aren't satisfied with two rookies and two vets at safety, so while I think they'll just play a corner like Biggers or Wilson there early in the season to save a roster spot, it wouldn't be the craziest thing if Gomes or Pugh made the Week 1 roster to prevent having to have two rookies in the lineup early in the season.

Forbath, Rocca, and Sundberg are basically without competition at this point. Rocca's net average dropped a lot last season, so if he shanks any in the preseason, I could see them being in competition. But Forbath and Sundberg are locks, at least for Week 1.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

This is a good looking roster. I have a few comments and questions.

Quote:

I could see keeping two QB's because Grossman could be cut and no other team would pick him up, so the Skins could bring him back at any time, if he were needed. On the other hand, who would be the emergency QB?

RB (4):
Alfred Morris
Chris Thompson (PUP or Practice Squad)
Roy Helu
Jawan Jamison
Daryl Young (FB)

I question whether Thompson or Helu can stay healthy. I also think Jamison would be more capable of carrying the load on 1st and 2nd down then they would be. We might keep Jamison to give Morris a breather. Who is the backup FB?

WR (6):
Garcon
Morgan
Moss
Hankerson
Robinson
Devery Henderson

No real argument here. I like Henderson more than most fans do. I wonder if the Skins might be tempted to go with only 5 WR's because they could run a two TE offense with the athletic hybrids they have.

TE (3):
Fred Davis
Logan Paulsen
Jordan Reed

I'll say that Niles Paul is kept over a 6th WR. With Zo gone, we can't afford to cut good ST players.

OL (9):
Trent
Montgomery (C)
Chester (G)
Lichtensteiger (C/G)
LeRebius (G)
Polumbus (RT)
Gettis (G)
Compton (RT/LT)
Pashos (RT)

Will LeRebius eat his way out of the league?

24 Offense

DL (7):
Jenkins
Bowen
Cofield
Baker
Brace
Carriker (PUP)
Golston
Nield

Brace backs up at DE until Carriker can return. Then, Nield is cut in favor of Brace because of Brace's ability to play two positions.

LB (8):
Fletcher
Riley
Orakpo
Kerrigan
Brandon Jenkins
Daryl Tapp
Robinson
Kehl
[Rob Jackson makes the team, but is on the suspsended list for the first four games. I think the skins will cut Tapp to make room for Jackson, unless another player is injured by then]

Kehl makes sense to me, as well, because he is a ST ace.

CB (5):
Hall
Biggers
Wilson
Crawford
Amerson

S (5):
Doughty (Solid backup and very good ST player)
Phillip Thomas
Rambo
Meriweather
Pugh

Tanard Jackson is a good football player but would the Skins trust him enough to keep him over Pugh?

Specialists (3)
LS Sundberg
K Forbath
P Rocca

(28 defense)

I'm at 52 players not including the suspended Rob Jackson. I think the 53 player is either Niles Paul or a 3rd QB. I could easily see Shanahan gamble with 2 QBs, even with Griffin coming off an injury, just because Shanahan is confident (or cocky to some) like that. Niles Paul isn't good, but he's versatile (TE/WR/ H-Back/KR/ST standout). I guess gun to my head I think Paul makes it.

So thats my 53

Would you still take out henderson?
No If that's the case I'd keep both If we could.

I'm basing this off of Dawson's reviews he's been getting from the columnists (John Keim, Mike Jones, etc.) saying that he's been showing off his blazing speed and making great moves on punt returns.

I also remember his name being mentioned a lot when I would watch the occasional TCU game (Baylor, Boise St., Wisconsin to name a few).
I see. Does anyone else think he has a legitimate chance at the opening day roster? For his college career, he had a pedestrian 91 catches with 1,125 yards, but he was the primary return man, an area of small concern for the Redskins. I don't know, although I'm inclined to agree with CultBrennan: he'll end up on the practice squad. I guess we'll find out.
