Training Camp, Pre-preseason Roster Prediction

These have been tough to do for a while, but I don't think it has been any tougher than right now.  This team is ridiculously deep.  There is talent at every position and for most of them the backup has been a starter recently or could be a starter on a lot of teams.  This will be great for special teams with the talented backups like Melvin Bullitt, Freddie Keiaho and Tyjuan Hagler.  I think that this could be a very special team.

The predictions for the 53 man roster and practice squad are after the jump.  Like always, it is in a depth chart order.

Thoughts: The defensive tackle position was the hardest.  I was debating between Daniel Muir and Antonio Johnson with AJ barely necking it out.  If Muir continues to make progress, he will have a chance.  Jamie Silva was also very close to making the roster but he could very easily be a midseason signing because of injury.  The same goes with Muir.  Curtis Johnson could make a huge impact on this league, but Marcus Howard is the faster version of him from a bigger program (Georgia>Clark Atlanta).  This was hard to make.  I am excited for the regular season.
