We are going to throw 53 man projections at you after each preseason game, and the thinking is that we’ll get more accurate as the season gets closer …. but that could be completely inaccurate. Check out the full 53 man predictions below.
Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill
Notes: Can’t see them having Stave on the active roster
Running Back (3)
Adrian Peterson, Jerrick McKinnon, Matt Asiata
Notes: Pains me to let Line go, but with Morgan/Ellison is he really needed?
Wide Receiver (6)
Stefon Diggs, Charles Johnson, Laquon Treadwell, Jarius Wright, Adam Thielen, Cordarrelle Patterson
Notes: MoBo lands on practice squad … let him season for a year.
Tight End (4)
Kyle Rudolph, MyCole Pruitt, David Morgan, Rhett Ellison
Notes: Ellison is a major question mark, even if he is healthy for the season opener.
Offensive Line (9)
Matt Kalil, Andre Smith, Brandon Fusco, John Sullivan, Alex Boone, TJ Clemmings, Joe Berger, Willie Beavers, Mike Harris
Notes: When you get to the bottom of this depth chart moves get very hard. I expect some surprises in this bunch.
Defensive Line (8)
Brian Robison, Linval Joseph, Sharrif Floyd, Everson Griffen, Danielle Hunter, Shamar Stephen, Tom Johnson, Justin Trattou
Notes: Weatherly will most likely find himself hanging out on the PS for a year.
Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Chad Greenway, Audie Cole, Kentrell Brothers, Emmanuel Lamur, Edmund Robinson
Notes: I’m pretty confident with the linebacking selections.
Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, Terrence Newman, Captain Munnerlyn, Mackensie Alexander, Tre Roberson
Notes: Roberson sneaks in and snipes Sherels.
Harrison Smith, Andrew Sendejo, Anthony Harris, Jayron Kearse, Antone Exum
Notes: One of the tougher to predict … not only who … but how many
