This roster prediction is written with a heavy rookie bias - optimistic in assuming that rookies (and other younger players) will win most camp battles and the veterans they replace are cut as cap casualties. The 12 for both offense and defense are in bold (3WRs and 3CBs are considered starters). New additions are in italics. Veterans whose positions are taken by rookies are in brackets (swap them if you prefer vets over the cheaper guys).
Jewel Hampton fills the last position until Hunter comes back from his Achilles injury
FB(2): Bruce Miller, Lawrence Okoye
Okoye makes the team as a jumbo fullback/ST player. His rugby football experience translates the best here, and this position can be learned relatively easy (Exhibition A: Bruce Miller)
This list is more or less straightforward. When MM is back, either Lockette or Williams is cut
Luke Marquard replaces Garrett Celek as a blocking TE (played this position earlier). He did not play tackle against good opposition, so he might need some time. He won't make it to the practice squad, someone would poach him.
The team did not draft as if swing Tackle was a position of urgent need. Therefore I assume Wiggins is good enough to make the squad.
No surprise here. I have Williams as starter due to his familiarity with the position. If Dial is not good enough to make the roster as a 5th rounder, he's cut like Slowey were last year.
Dobbs is a placeholder until Carradine can make the squad.
Cam Johnson is put on the PS, he is replaced by Okoye on special teams.
If Moody wins the camp battle, good. If Wilhoite wins it, Moody goes to PS.
I hade Whitner as a cap casualty originally, but changed my mind. As I also forgot Dahl off, he was put back, kicking out McBath.
Cox makes the team as he can be kept for one more year as UDFA. Brock is cut
Special teams (3)
The premier LS prospect of this draft beats out veteran Jennings, to save $500k cap space.
KR: LaMichael James PR: Ricardo Lockette
Achilles injuries take longer to heal than some ACL tears, I have to assume Hunter starts the season here.
TJE, Fleming, Hampton, Robinson and Johnson are eligible for the PS.
Cut: FS Darcel McBath, CB Tremaine Brock, LS Brian Jennings, LB Michael Wilhoite
EDIT: I completely forgot Dahl is on the team. Also put Whitner back and 'cut' McBath.
