    53 Man Roster Projection

    Here is Mine. I won't be doing a PS list, but feel free to do so

    QB(2) Tannehill, Moore

    RB(4) Moreno, Miller, D. Williams, Darkwa

    WR(6) Wallace, Gibson, Landry, Matthews, Hartline, D. Williams

    TE(3) Clay, Sims, Gator Hoskins

    OL(10) Albert, Colledge, Satele, S. Smith, J. James, Turner, Garner, Pouncey, Thomas, Brenner

    DE(5) Vernon, Wake, Jordan, Fede, Shelby

    DT(5) Starks, Mitchell, Odrick, Anthony Johnson, Kamal Johnson

    LB(7) Misi, McCain, Tripp, Ellerbe, Wheeler, Trusnik, Freeny

    CB(5) Grimes, Finnegan, W. Davis, J. Taylor, Waiver Wire Pickup

    S(5) R. Jones, Delmas, J. Wilson, M. Thomas, W. Aikens

    Specialists(3) Fields, Sturgis, Denney

    That's 55 players since Jordan and Reshad won't count until the 5th game. Let me know what you think.

    I think unless darkwa or d.williams can pass block d. Thomas makes the squad. I think d. Thomas stinks big time, but we won't go into the season with only 1 rb with pass blockingskills

    i agree with your roster, I think Thigpen makes it over Darkwa

    I have a hunch as well that Sturgis may be headed for IR, if he can't kick he is a liability so to save a roster spot I think they let Sturgis sit the season and heal up for next year

    I have no idea if darkwa or williams can pass block. Miller cannot. Fins won't go with only moreno as the only pass blocking rb. If darkwa and williams suck at pass blocking dt will make the team

    I have no allegiance to Darkwa or Sturgis so it doesn't matter to me. Only reason I have Darkwa making the team is because he led the team this preseason in yards even though he played mostly with second and third teamers.

    Making the team just because he can pass block would be an all time low for this team.

    If he can't run the ball find someone who can. LeSean McCoy was one of the best RBs last season and was just as bad in pass blocking as Millier was. You know what they did? They didn't have him pass block.

    In 947 snaps he was asked to pass block 77 times.
    Miller in 633 snaps was asked to pass block 133 times.

    In total Eagles backs where asked to pass block 99 times. Dolphins? 226.

    So seems the offense just doesn't ask them to block either. IMO its smarter anyways. Let them break free and give the QB a quick and easy target if a rush is coming.

    No way, I want Darkwa on the squad, even if it's practice squad.

    This list is missing Garrison Smith and Kyle Miller, I believe both will make the team. Only I'm not sure who you take off the list, that's the most difficult part. I fully expect WRs Hazel and Cone to make our practice squad unless another team picks them up. I want to cut Wheeler but as it stands we don't have the depth to do so, maybe we'll be fortunate enough to pick up someone else's trash and turn it into treasure, can't be that hard to find someone better than Wheeler.

    Already reported Miller was getting cut. Looks like Gator Hoskins is making it over him or both could be cut and a roster claim might fill it.

    Smith sure has looked good, but so has Anthony Johnson and Kamal Johnson.

    Also Neutral Pouncey is on the PUP so doesn't count on the cap either, seems he is going to start the season there.

    Was. Key word. Injurys have really hurt him.

    I might kick the tires though.

    I am not sure what asked to block means. RB's are pretty much expected to block every pass play excluding screen type plays , the RB has to read the play and is the one who picks up the extra blitzers, as the play continues and players are blocked the RB becomes the check down RB. You rarely see RB break from the line of scrimmage on the snap and run 10 yards down field for a pass play.

    In modern day NFL unless you are a top flight RB like a AP or a Mccoy you better be able to pass block or your either going to lose playing time or worst get cut. Lamar Miller poor pass blocking last season had him sitting on the bench for Daniel Thomas who at least showed some form of pass blocking, if Miller could of blocked as well as DT he would of had a lot more playing time.

    Lol Miller got cut? I don't know how I missed that. I wouldn't be surprised if we brought him back at some point. I'm happy with Clay, Sims & Hoskins.

    As for Garrison Smith, he's been great and a different DT compared to both Johnsons. As I said, if he doesn't make the team he'll go to the practice squad, otherwise one of the Johnsons might. I don't see us going with 11 on the DL, so 2 of them may be sent to the practice squad. We've kept Isaako Aaitui around for a while, too, so he may remain somehow.

    Connor Barth is available, I'd take a flier on him for the kicker spot... I don't trust a kicker with a bad groin
