Today I was sitting in class and started to go over the roster as it presents itself right now. Then I decided to make a roster prediction just for myself (probably not the very best way to spend my lessons at the University with but I just couldn't help myself). Anyway, I'd like to share it with you guys to see what you think about it.
I know, it's still early and the Bengals could easily sign some more guys but it's still a fun thing to do in my opinion.
Hamilton (Wishful thinking, we all know it's going to be Whalen)
Wilder Jr. (RB)
Now, there are three more names, I'd like to squeeze in there but I don't really know how. Both Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch have a shot at DE but it either takes a Geathers cut and I don't believe that's happening unless he hasn't gotten healthy from his injury or some other injuries. One injury at DE and these two guys battle it out for one more spot. The other guy you're probably missing is Jayson DiManche. He might take Taylor Mays' spot and the Bengals clearly like his ability to play on ST so he would probably take someone's spot on the 53.
But yeah, realistically, Boling might start on PUP and we probably won't get through camp without any serious injuries so DiManche is probably the first guy who would earn a free roster spot (at least in my prediction).
Let me know, what you think about it and have a great week, my fellow CJ readers!
