I think RGIII will make the team. I also like London Fletcher's chances. Monkey

I'm kinda wondering how many guys we keep at each position grouping. List with rough guesses and 53 total. Discuss/Fix?

OL 9
WR 7
TE 3
RB 3
QB 3

DL 8
LB 9
DB 8

ST 3

Whattathink?

I think we may keep 4 TEs, and definitely 4 RBs (counting FBs), but I'm not sure where those extra 2 players are conimg out of your numbers. We have to keep an extra QB this year, so that already has us down one spot. I don't see us keeping 9 LBs. Probably closer to 8, and maybe only 7. Probably only 7 DL, too.

^ Are you accounting for the FB in your three RBs?

Maybe he doubles as a TE. That's one of the things that makes this so interesting. BB is ST and WR. We have a TE/WR hybrid and a LB who can do most anything. Versatile guys might have an edge. They might allow us to keep someone who won't start but we don't want to let go. BTW - Gano is a very good punter. That's an edge.

Alfred Morris may play both FB and RB if he makes the roster

It will be interesting - like the 8 WRs - excuse me - 7 WRs and a Return specialist that e kept last year.

Here was the scenario for RBs at the start of last year:

3 RBs Hightower, Helu and Torain
1 FB Young

This scenario allowed for 4 TEs Davis, Cooley (Part time FB), Paulsen, Sellers (Back up FB)

This year, I still see us carrying 4 RBs to include one bondafide FB

It might look like this:

Helu - RB, Royster - RB, Morris - RB/FB
Young FB - young has also lined up as a running back.

*This scenario will still allow us to still carry 4 TE's Davis, Cooley (Part time FB), Paulsen, Paul

But the count is still 4 RBS - the way RBs go down I think that you have to have 4 RBs on the roster.

Moss
Robinson
Armstrong


QBs
RGIII
Cousins
Grossman

Will play more than one of the positions listed above
Morris (FB & RB)
Paul (FB & TE may also see time at WR)

Lichtensteiger
Montgomery
Chester
Brown
Gettis
LeRibeye

I like this. Quite a menu, BTW:

I'm Lichting my chops and can't wait to Gettis ahold of that Brown LeRibeye for which I have a strong Hankering. How about some Roysters on a half shell? Ou est le Garcon?

I think that's a pretty solid list, 1niksder. Nice job. I'm definitely in favor of carrying less WRs on the roster if it means depth on the OL.

I really enjoyed Redskin1's mock.

The only changes I'd consider are to who's starting at WR, RB and C. I see Hankerson start opposite of Garcon, a healthy Hightower starting ahead of Helu, and Leriebus taking over the center duties.

In addition, I see Robinson or Armstrong not making the team with the 6th WR position going to Lance Lewis who impressed during the rookie camp. Great hands and height.

Also, I can see Alfred Morris pushing for the 3rd RB spot because he can double as a backup FB. Or he gets stashed on the PS.
