Who do you guys see making the roster this year? Here's what I'm guessing will happen:
LB Jamie Collins (second round, 52nd overall) -- Obviously makes it. Star potential.
WR Aaron Dobson (second round, 59th overall) -- Obviously makes it. Healthy Amendola + 2nd year Dobson + Lafell = Improved deep game. Not great, but improved.
Ross Tucker @RossTuckerNFL Jan 19
Remember the reports that Patriots scouts were mad because Belichick overruled them on Jamie Collins pick? Bill knows.
CB Logan Ryan (third round, 83rd overall) -- Obviously makes it. Will get snaps when Browner is suspended and Dennard might be suspended too. Might play S and if he has a knack for it, could end up replacing McCourty.
S Duron Harmon (third round, 90th overall) -- Obviously makes it. Should play a pretty good amount of snaps, but I don't see him never leaving the field like McCourty. Might play 1 safety high and put out another CB at times, or if we draft a SS high, he could get a decent amount of snaps at some point too.
WR Josh Boyce (fourth round, 102nd overall) -- I'm 50/50 on this one. Last on the depth chart and primary kickoff returner and backup punt returner perhaps?
DE Michael Buchanan (seventh round, 226th overall) -- Probably, but not a lock IMO. He could be replaced by a draft pick + a veteran. At least he doesn't have to worry about Bequette taking his job.
LB Steve Beauharnais (seventh round, 235th overall) -- I think so. We would draft another LB for depth.
WR Kenbrell Thompkins (undrafted) -- I don't think he makes it. He's going to have to bring it during training camp.
DT Chris Jones (claimed on waivers; sixth round, Texans) -- Unsure. If we draft someone his chances go down. Wilfork, Kelly, Siliga, Draft Pick, Jones, Armstead. I'm not sure we go with 6 unless there is enough positional flexibility there for some to play DE in a 3-4 or something... End of the depth chart and I'm guessing Armstead will leapfrog him.
DT Joe Vellano (undrafted) -- Unlikely. Will have to at least beat out Jones for a shot.
P Ryan Allen (undrafted) -- Obviously makes it. Solid rookie season. Bill made a fantastic choice grabbing this guy and choosing him over Mesko.
WR/TE Mark Harrison (undrafted) -- Unlikely, but I'm hopeful.
G Josh Kline (undrafted) -- 1/3 of the Oline guys will make it, maybe 2/3.
C/G Chris Barker (undrafted/claimed on waivers, Dolphins) -- 1/3 of the Oline guys will make it, maybe 2/3.
C Braxston Cave (undrafted/claimed on waivers, Browns) -- 1/3 of the Oline guys will make it, maybe 2/3.
Don't forget about those classic BB surprise cuts. You never know..
