    I don't know Wragge at all, I must read up on him
    I like your roster but I'd have Boren in the 53, I like him a lot

    And possibly Cook instead of Considine.


    Good call on Cornell, by all accounts he's doing well in camp. I love seeing UDFA's succeed

    haha... you have Tucker as the kicker... doubt if that happens!
    After 5 years of early exits, the journey is finally complete.

    If you guys are counting Suggs, you don't have to since PUP players do not count towards the 53.

    Room MAY need to be made around week 8 or 9 for him, but while on PUP, he does not count.

    There's a saying that applies to the kicker position:

    "The devil you know is better than the devil you don't"

    Personally, I hope Tucker outkicks Cundiff the whole camp and through pre-season.... but we both know the kid will begin to wither here in the next few weeks. He more than likely has more developing to do.

    Ill have to go over it again. Streeter boren the new lbs will be areas to address. 3 tes are pretty much a certainity now.

    Re: The way too early and completely irrelevant roster breakdown, because it's July and we're bored.

    QB Flacco
    QB Taylor

    last year we carried two, this year i feel we do the same. Im not even sure Painter would be the option mid-season at this point. hes shown absolutely nothing and is being openly mocked in practices at this point. (2 in 2012/2 week 1 roster in 2011)

    RB Rice
    RB Pierce
    RB Berry

    First go around I thought Berry would make it a competition, from most reports hes not only doing that but winning it outright, to the point he may even end up the #2 RB with Peirce now hurt. that also opens the door to a possible late signing of Grant/Benson, but i think Ozzie trusts his youth and lets the young guys handle it. (3/3)

    FB Leach

    no questions. (1/1)

    WR Boldin
    WR Smith
    WR Doss
    WR Jones
    WR Williams
    WR Streeter

    I still think we carry 6 and i still think Streeter makes the most sense. Thompson is known to be a practice phenom just to have that not show up in games. I think we see the same thing happen here, lights out in practice and disappear in preseason games. If he does continue his success i think its a tough call but they find a way to stash Streeter and thompson gets that last spot. Both possess too much potential to just let go. (6/6)

    TE Dickson
    TE Pitta
    TE Bajema

    Figgins goes to PS and Bajema lessens the hit of Pitta being out most of TC. Pitta will be behind a little and may take a week or two to get back into the swing of things but should reconnect relatively quick with flacco. I think if Ed starts out hot hell probably maintain the #1 spot, if he has a slow start Pitta becomes the #1 by week 4. with the possibility of running more 3 WR sets this year itll mean something, but well still run enough 2 TE sets that this is more of a 1a/1b than anything. (3/3)

    T McKinnie
    G Williams
    C Birk
    G Yanda
    T Oher
    G Osemele
    T Reid
    C Gradkowski
    T Howard

    As much of a workman that Oher is I just dont see him beating out McKinnie in a competition, but im glad theyre doing so anyway. Hopefully it doesnt effect his ability on the right side. I think Howard offers enough in experience as well as upside to make the final roster. Cornell will be an interesting player due to his versatility for future years but i think hes safe this year on the PS and likely takes Harewoods spot whos done, imo. Boren is a player id love to make the team, but i just can see it with having so many guys capable of playing inside. another year on PS would do him good if he doesnt get snatched up in the meantime. (9/9)

    DE Ngata
    NT Cody
    DE Jones
    DE Mcphee
    DT McBean
    DE DeAngelo
    DT Kemoeatu
    * DT Hall

    I still expect to see good things from Jean-Baptiste in TC as the team is really high on him but maybe they sneak him onto the PS for a year or late call up instead. Hall makes sense to carry and then drop for McBean, also helping protect him from being picked up by other teams before the season starts. (7/8)

    *with McBean making the roster and being suspended were allowed to carry an extra player until hes activated and another waived.

    OLB Kruger
    ILB Lewis
    ILB McClain
    OLB Upshaw
    ILB Ellerbe
    OLB Kindle
    ILB Ayanbadejo
    ILB Carr
    OLB McCellan

    Sergio Kindle and Carr are both impressing. Ellerbe if underwhelming could be dropped to keep a bryan hall or maybe even Cook, but i doubt they go that direction and keep the insurance policy for an older and thinner Ray Lewis. (9/9)

    CB Webb
    CB Smith
    CB Williams
    CB Gorrer
    CB/S Graham
    CB Jackson
    CB Brown

    Jackson is too impressive and Graham really brings some flexibility. I really had a hard time cutting down to 6 originally but decided Brown is too much of a talent and too young to give up on so quickly. they find a way to keep him and carry 7. (7/6)

    FS Reed
    SS Pollard
    FS Thompson
    S Considine

    after rethinking this, i had to find room for Chykie, and even with Reed an unknown next year, i think its more likely that Cary Williams leaves than he does meaning well need brown for the future more than well need Cook. tough call but i think it makes more sense in the long run. Its possible he beats out considine but i think Harbs values his ST ability from his philly days too much. Id rather see cook make the roster personally. (4/4)

    LS Cox
    P Koch
    K Tucker

    Im still not sure if Tucker can do it in the coaches eyes, but im softening up even more to pulling the trigger. Im not even sure if hes missed inside 50 yards in practice and has the reputation of being a clutch kicker. (3/3)

    I like this one better, but if you ask me to do another in 4 weeks its probably going to look different again. Pittas injury made me add a 3rd TE when right before i was thinking we might only carry 2 with an extra lineman. If he comes back a little early I could see the team still doing that and adding a Wragge, Cornell, or Boren.

    Wragge over McKinnie would be a big surprise, as would Carr over Ellerbe.

    Your biggest omission, though, is no Albert McClellan. I wouldn't put him in the "lock" category, but he's a "near lock" to make the roster at this point.

    Re: The way too early and completely irrelevant roster breakdown, because it's July and we're bored.

    I pretty much agree with this - except I think that Cornell somehow makes it into the O line group.

    Re: The way too early and completely irrelevant roster breakdown, because its July and were bored.

    For what it's worth, here is my 53 man roster projection.

    1) QB Flacco
    2) QB Taylor
    3) RB Rice
    4) RB Pierce
    5) RB Allen
    6) FB Leach
    7) TE Dickson
    8) TE Pitta
    9) TE Drew
    10) WR Smith
    11) WR Boldin
    12) WR Doss
    13) WR Jones
    14) WR Williams
    15) RT McKinnie
    16) RG Williams
    17) C Birk
    18) LG Yanda
    19) LT Oher
    20) OL Gradkowski
    21) OL Osemele
    22) OL Ried
    23) OL Boren

    24) K Cundiff
    25) P Koch
    26) LS Cox

    27) DL Ngata
    28) DL Cody
    29) DL McPhee
    30) DL Jones
    31) DL Hall
    32) DL Jean-Baptiste
    33) MLB Lewis
    34) MLB McClain
    35) OLB Upshaw
    36) OLB Kruger
    37) LB Ayanbadejo
    38) LB McClellan
    39) LB Ellerbe
    40) LB Kindle
    41) LB Bynes
    42) CB Webb
    43) CB Smith
    44) CB C. Williams
    45) CB Gorrer
    46) CB Graham
    47) CB C. Brown
    48) CB Jackson
    49) S Reed
    50) S Pollard
    51) S Considine
    52) S Thompson
    53) S Cook

    IR: Streeter, possibly Tyson
    PUP: D. Reed, Suggs
    Suspended list: McBean

    I really don't think there is a lot of suspense about what our roster is going to look like. By my count, about 45 of the 53 spots are pretty set in stone, assuming no injuries.
