    Eleven Job Openings: Who Gets The Jobs?

    Barring a trade or a major injury, I see 42 players who are locks to make the 53 man roster. They are:

    QB: Bulger, Frerotte, Fitzpatrick (3)
    RB: Jackson, Leonard (2)
    FB: Hedgecock (1)
    WR: Holt, Bruce, Bennett, Hall (4)
    OL: Pace, Setterstrom, McCollum, Incognito, Barron, Steussie, Romberg (7)
    TE: McMichael, Klopfenstein, Walker (3)
    DE: Little, Hall, Adeyanju (3)
    DT: Carriker, Glover, Wroten, Ryan (4)
    LB: Tinoisamoa, Witherspoon, Chillar, Draft, Alston (5)
    CB: Hill, Brown, Bartell, Wade (4)
    S: Atogwe, Chavous, Johnson (3)
    ST: Wilkins, Jones, Massey (3)

    That leaves 11 spots remaining. Here are the players I think will make it (in order of certainty):

    C/G Dustin Fry
    CB Lenny Walls
    WR/H Dane Looker
    SS Jerome Carter
    DT Keith Jackson
    RB Travis Minor
    OG Milford Brown
    DE Eric Moore
    LB Quinton Culberson
    CB Darius Vinnett
    WR/KR Derek Stanley

    Most notable players I think will be cut:

    OL Adam Goldberg
    LB Raonall Smith
    TE Dominique Byrd
    OG Claude Terrell

    Some players I see destined for the practice squad:

    RB Rich Alexis
    WR Marques Hagans
    OT Ken Shackleford
    DT Tim Sandidge

    I thought Goldberg was doing alright. In any case, I'd probably keep him, put Keith Jackson on the squad and drop Sandidge.

    Oh, and I'm rooting for Hagans to make it over Looker.

    Probably won't happen considering that Looker is Jeff's holder.

    Looker is already pretty much guaranteed to get a roster spot

    OL Adam Goldberg
    LB Raonall Smith
    TE Dominique Byrd
    OG Claude Terrell
    You really see these guys getting cut? They all (except for Byrd) have starting experience which IMO gives them the upper hand. I can see if Walker beats out Byrd he would be gone, but Goldberg, Smith and Terrell bring quality depth.

    Yeah, I forgot that. Maybe over Stanley then, as long as he could be a backup returner.

    As for the line, I still say Jackson to the practice, boot Brown, and keep Terrell and Goldberg.

    Re: Eleven Job Openings: Who Gets The Jobs?

    Unless Romberg beats out McCollum in head-to-head competition, I don't see him making it because he can only play center and the Rams might want a guy that can play multiple positions like A. Golberg and D. Fry. Also I agree that C. Terrell should beat out M. Brown. It would be pretty embarrassing to have a former member of one of the worst OLs in the league make the Rams squad. Finally, there was a small note in one of the posts recently that two of A. Walker's long-snaps in punt formation sailed over the head of out punter: while ordinarily this wouldn't be a big deal, I gotta believe Walker's hold on a roster spot is very tenuous at this time, and he had better show that he can do more than just be a 3rd string TE. Therefore D. Byrd may well have moved ahead of Walker due to his greater upside potential.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    TE Dominique Byrd
    OG Claude Terrell
    I tink they make it on the roster, Terrell is looking good and Byrd looked good when he got his chance to play.

    100% agree here, but does anybody know Stanley's 40 time? I wonder what would happen if we put Wade or Hill as backup returners, they're so bleepin fast.
