Special Teams (3)
J. Slye - K
T. Way - P
C. Cheeseman - LS
Offense (25 or 26)
One to two other offensive players who ball out this summer, either a returning player like S. Reyes or UDFA like J. Ezzard; player closest to bubble: D. Milne. I'm taking a SWAG on Ezzard #25 and S. Reyes just above 50/50 at #26
Defense (24 or 25)
There are fewer locks; I'll put it at 16
2 to 3 more DEs are likely to be selected who will contribute to special teams: front runners are J. Smith-Willliams, C. Toohill and S. Toney
4 more DBs are likely to be selected who will contribute to special teams: front runners are: C. Holmes, D. Johnson, T. Apke and D. Forrest but the last three could easily be eclipsed by UDFAs and / or FAs not yet on the roster.
1 to 3 more LBs will be selected. I'm hoping if it's one, it's a Mike LB not yet on the roster. If it's a total of three with no new additions, front runners are: D. Mayo, J. Kunaszyk and a defensive UDFA. I'm taking a SWAG at T. Walker in that scenario but my hunch is we will add a LB at some point this summer or very early in the season.
The six defensive players closest to bubble (in no particular order) are: D. Johnson, T. Apke, D. Forrest, K. Hudson, J. Kunaszyk and D. Mayo.
With the exception of an outside chance of L. Collins returning and / or efforts to secure Mike LB, special teams contributions will dictate on the final non-lock spots on the 53 man roster (barring injury of course).
