My Mock Roster 2009


This roster will include 53 roster spots, PUP players (who I think may start on the PUP), and practice squad players.  As I have no idea who will be getting cut from the other rosters, I can't foresee what will be available at which position that might prompt these choices to change.  Anyway, after three preseason games I feel like I can make an pretty educated guess at what the roster might look like.  When I feel it is appropriate I will explain my choices and indicate who might be replaced by PUP players with a * by their names.

 

Quarterback:
Peyton Manning
Jim Sorgi

Running Back:
Joseph Addai
Donald Brown
Lance Ball* (Simply not as good as Mike Hart when both players are healthy)

Wide Receiver:
Reggie Wayne
Anthony Gonzalez
Austin Collie
Pierre Garcon
Taj Smith (primarily as a ST gunner)

Tight End:
Dallas Clark
Jacob Tamme
Gijon Robinson*  (Has looked pretty bad blocking)

Offensive Line:
Tony Ugoh
Charlie Johnson
Ryan Lilja
Jamey Richard
Kyle DeVan
Jeff Saturday
Mike Pollak
Daniel Federkeil
Ryan Diem

Safety:
Bob Sanders
Antoine Bethea
Melvin Bullitt
Jamie Silva
Matt Giordano

Cornerback:
Kelvin Hayden
Marlin Jackson
Tim Jennings
Jerraud Powers

Linebacker:
Clint Session
Gary Brackett
Philip Wheeler
Tyjuan Hagler
Jordan Senn
Mike Tauiliili

Defensive End:
Dwight Freeney
Robert Mathis
Marcus Howard
Curtis Johnson (Superior pass rusher and special teams player to Keyunta Dawson)
Raheem Brock

Defensive Tackle:
Ed Johnson
Daniel Muir
Antonio Johnson
Eric Foster (I keep Foster over Dawson as well)
Fili Moala
Adrian Grady (Hands down has out-played both Moala and Taylor.  Ready to contribute now.  Stash Taylor.)

Special Teams:
T.J. Rushing (Best returner we have on the team at this point)
Justin Snow
Pat McAfee
Adam Vinatieri

Mike Hart
