Post Draft PROJECTED 53 MAN ROSTER (OPENING DAY)

I’m not a necromancer, nor an NFL front office executive, so I cannot say with absolute certainty that this is the opening day roster. But it’s a best guess based on what battles look to be in place post-draft. I also tried to follow the NFL rules for who I placed on the Practice Squad – who is elibigle, and who would make it w/o getting scooped up. . OFFENSE QUARTERBACKS (2) QB – Andy Dalton QB – Josh Johnson / John Skelton winner O-LINE (9) LT – Andrew Whitworth LG – Clint Boling C – Kyle Cook RG – Kevin Zeitler RT – Andre Smith OL – Anthony Collins OL – Trevor Robinson OL – Mike Pollak OL – Reid Fragel TIGHT ENDS (3) TE – Jermaine Gresham TE –Tyler Eifert TE – Orson Charles RUNNING BACK / FULL BACK (5) RB – BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB – Giovani Bernard RB – Cedric Peerman RB – Rex Burkhead FB – Chris Pressley / John Conner winner WIDE RECEIVER (6) WR – AJ Green WR – Mohammed Sanu WR – Andrew Hawkins WR – Marvin Jones WR – Dane Sanzenbacher WR – Brandon Tate . DEFENSE D-LINE (9) DE – Michael Johnson DE – Carlos Dunlap DE – Wallace Gilberry DE – Robert Geathers DE – Margus Hunt DT – Geno Atkins DT – Domato Peko DT – Devon Still DT – Brandon Thompson LINEBACKER (6) LB – Vontaze Burfict (WILL) LB – Rey Maualuga (MIKE) LB – James Harrison (SAM) LB – Emmanuel Lamur LB – Vincent Rey LB – Sean Porter DEFENSIVE BACK (10) CB – Leon Hall CB – Terence Newman CB – Adam Jones CB – Dre Kirkpatrick CB – Brandon Ghee CB – Chris Lewis-Harris FS – Reggie Nelson SS – Shawn Williams S – Jeromy Miles S – Tony Dye / George Iloka winner SPECIALISTS (3) K - Mike Nugent P - Kevin Huber LS - Clark Harris .
