New, comments

Mark Tyler gives his Redskins 53-man roster prediction.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

We have seen a lot...well, maybe not, since my last roster prediction after the Redskins played the Ravens. Sunday's game saw the starters play a bit into the third quarter, and who was out there, and who wasn't, says a lot about who should make this roster.

Some standout performances and injuries have effected my last roster projections. Below, you can get a look at who I think will make the Redskins 53-man roster.

Offense:(24)

QB - Kirk Cousins, Colt McCoy, Nate Sudfeld

RB - Robert Kelley, Chris Thompson, Samaje Perine

WR - Terrelle Pryor, Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson, Ryan Grant, Maurice Harris, Robert Davis

TE - Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Niles Paul, Jeremy Sprinkle

OL - Trent Williams, Shawn Lauvao, Spencer Long, Brandon Scherff, Morgan Moses, Ty Nsekhe, Chase Roullier, Arie Kouandjio

Defense:(26)

DL - Jonathan Allen, Stacy McGee, Terrell McClain, Matt Ioannidis, Ziggy Hood, Anthony Lanier, Joey Mbu

OLB - Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, Ryan Anderson, Junior Galette, Chris Carter

ILB - Zach Brown, Mason Foster, Martrell Spaight, Will Compton

CB - Josh Norman, Bashaud Breeland, Kendall Fuller, Fabian Moreau, Quinton Dunbar, Joshua Holsey

S - D.J. Swearinger, Su'a Cravens, DeShazor Everett, Montae Nicholson

Special Teams: (3)

K - Dustin Hopkins

P - Tress Way

LS - Nick Sundberg

PUP With Designation to Return:

Deangelo Hall

Notes:

*I have the Redskins carrying just 8 offensive linemen, and 5 outside linebackers. This could easily be 9 OL and 4 OLB. I feel they will try and put three of their young linemen on the practice squad, and I do not feel Vinston Painter is worth a roster spot at this time.

*I have the battle at CB and S leaving out veteran Will Blackmon in favor of a younger rookie in Holsey (who has played well). Nicholson, in limited action, has shown he belongs.
