    53 man roster, what spots are left

    Here is how i currently see the roster, please adivse as to your views. (players in parenthesis indicates spot up from grabs or bubble spot)

    Offense

    qb- bulger, gus, (fitz/ragone)
    rb- jackson, fischer, big moe (i dont think we have a spot for russell)
    fb- paul smith (hedgecock on the bubble, numbers game, could go either way)
    wr- holt, ike, curtis, mcdonald, looker, (one of the following- hagans/pyatt/thompson (i bet hagans)
    te-klopfenstein, carter, byrd
    OT- Pace, barron, steussie
    Guard- Timmerman, incognito, sorrenstrom (Terrell/Sapiaia/Palmer)(at least one spot, maybe two but i think palmer wont make it, sapiaia plays tackle as well and i think that terrell is big time in the dog house)
    Center-mccollom, turner (i have turner making the team because i dont think we have another backup center. I dont count Richie I in that spot because to my knowledge, he hasnt worked at all at center)

    Total offense spots- 25. Depending how many lineman we carry, that could leave hedgecock without a spot. If i am off on the backup center, that would be a relevant data point since i would hate to cut terrell. I wonder if he winds up on IR. If he doesnt have the work ethic in the view of the coaches, he could be gone). Palmer is going to make the practice squad, as will thompson. I cant see us cutting hagans given that we just picked him.


    Specialists (total of 3)

    Kicker- Money
    Punter- Turk
    Long Snapper- Massey


    Defense (total of 25)


    Defensive Tackle- Kennedy, Glover, Fisk, Wroten, (maybe one other of sandidge, howard, calloway)
    Defensive End- Little, Hargrove, Adenjayu, Green (i think rice makes the practice squad)
    Linebacker (total of seven)- Spoon, pisa, chillar, smith, alston (coakely or wahlroos) and (brooks or mcingargle)
    corner- butler, fisher, hill, brown, groce
    safety-chaveous, oj, bartell, carter

    Thats a total of 24 guys on defense, leaving room for one more, which is most likely another defensive tackle in my view.


    Ramming speed to all, i look forward to your opinions.

    Re: 53 man roster, what spots are left

    If we go with 7 WRs or 6 DBs -- Russell or Hedgecock will not make the roster. I don't see the Rams carrying more than 6 LBs on the active roster. We still have two more games which will go a long way in helping to shape the final roster projections issued by the ClanRam armchair coaches ... I wonder if there is any possibility that Russell could get a shot at PR or KR?


    QB: Bulger, Ferotte, Fitzpatrick
    RB: Jackson, Fisher, Williams, Russell
    FB: Smith, Hedgecock
    WR: Holt, Bruce, Curtis, McDonald, Looker, Hagans
    TE: Klop, Walker, Byrd
    OG: Incognito, Timmerman, Setterstrom, Terell
    OT: Pace, Barron, Steussie, Saipaia

    Specialists:
    K: Wilkins
    P: Turk
    LS: Massey

    DE: Little, Hargrove, Adeyanju, Green
    DT: Glover, Kennedy, Fisk, Wroten, Howard
    OLB: Tinoisamoa, Chillar, Coakley, Alston
    MLB: Witherspoon, Smith
    S: Atogwe, Chavous, Carter, Bartell
    CB: Brown, Fisher, Butler, Hill, Groce

    That offensive line is going to be rather suspect without a center.

    So far Hagans has been less than spectacular retuning punts, goes side to side and barley makes the catch. Hasn't shown much recieving either. Thompson has shown much more asa reciever. But Pyeatt gets the nod as last reciever because he is going to be the new punt returner.

    I'd have to basically agree with all that. It's tough luck for Thompson to have to fight for a roster spot on a team with WR depth like ours.

    Did you mean Collins or Walker as the 2nd TE? Just wondering.

    I think the Rams are going to keep 7 linebackers, Brooks will probably be the guy. Alston is quick and a little light for the position, Haslett will keep him but get creative with him. Probably play some secondary ???
