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.
