    Although there is a discussion of the likely 53 man roster on other threads and discussions about particular positions throughout.

    I really want Lattimore to make this team. He looks like a gamer.

    My final roster guess at this point is similar to yours, with QBs, RBs, WRs, OL, DL, CB, and STs all the same.

    At LB I simplydon't see Jones making the cut, especially after another poor game in Indy combined with the good play of So 'oto and Lattimore. I see one of these guys making the final 53, with the other getting a practice squad offer along with Elmore (who i think would have been ok with OTAs and such but needs a year on the PC to learn to play LB like you said). I'm leaning So 'oto, primarily because I like his bend when he rushes the passer, plus in the preseason games, he's shown a great engine that just doesn't stop.

    Great topic.

    Me too, but he's really underweight. Hopefully will go on PS and put on some good weight for next year.

    So oto has to make it now.
    Peprah is better than Burnett, still.
    Quinn Johnson is on the bubble IF Taylor is capable of doing some of the FB stuff.
    Can't imagine them keeping 6 WRs with 5 TEs... someone has to be moved. But West is NFL-ready now. He'd be a #3 or #2 WR on some teams out there, or he should be.

    I'm not a fan of Francois.

    Bottom line - too much talent, too few roster spots.

    Which means the Pack will have one hell of a practice squad, with many guys ready to fill in when someone gets hurt, cuz it's going to happen.

    Does Harrell really need to make this team? Aside from the last 2 drives (penalty aided and all) he looked terrible.

    Regarding only one FB, the operative word in the title for me is “guess”.

    QB: Rodgers, Flynn (2)

    RB: Grant, Starks, Green, Kuhn, Johnson (7)

    WR: Jennings, Driver, Nelson, Jones, Cobb, West (13)

    TE: Finley, Quarless, Williams, Taylor (17)

    OL: Clifton, Lang, Wells, Sitton, Bulaga, Sherrod, Dietrich Smith, Newhouse, McDonald (26)

    DL: Raji, Pickett, Neal, Green, Wilson, Wynn (32)

    LB: Matthews, Bishop, Hawk, Zombo, Walden, Jones, Smith, Francois, So'oto (41)

    DB: Williams, Woodson, Shields, House, Collins, Peprah, Burnett, Bush, and either Underwood/Lee/Gordy. I think that you'd have to retain at least keep 9 DBs. (50)

    ST:
    Crosby
    Masthay
    Goode (53)

    PS
    Harrell
    Saine
    Gurley
    Schuladeraff
    Guy
    Lattimore
    Elmore
    Levine

    *I'm not sure how long Zombo's injury is, but maybe they put him on PUP. That would definitely make So'oto more likely on the 53-man roster.

    *I think they have to retain at least one DL on their practice squad because Mike Neal is a ticking time bomb.

    *Out of the 53 guys I have making the roster, I'd say Quinn Johnson is most vulnerable, especially if they want to keep 10 DBs and/or like Taylor as a backup FB.

    I think he does. This is Flynn's last year and Harrell wouldn't clear waivers. Too many teams need QBs and teams would be inclined to pick him up just because he's been coached at QBU.

    I think your list is spot on. Every poster will have one or two that they feel stronger about but I think we all agree the close one's could go either way.
    WRs can go West or Gurley, but I'd rather see the taller target and ST play of Gurley. I agree that whoever doesn't make the team will not clear waivers. It makes me sick to think of either player on another team. TE seems right too. Everyone wondered why so many TEs in the draft until we consider Taylor as H Back. Sorry to say I think you're right about Crabtree. But I'd rather see a big group of capable TEs with receiving threats than fullbacks.
    I think what the coaches like in McDonald is his "squareness" They like his style and his build for center. I completely agree on Sherrod and Newhouse. I think they are in a good position at tackle. I'm not even sweating Sherrod not coming on strong this early because I am pretty high on Newhouse. Let's pray Cliffy stays healthy and a power one more year.
    On D-line I think Guy will be a PS guy but that's just what I believe. I have no reason to think the Packer staff is that high on him. I would just like to see him work out. You know... the hidden gem late round story. I like the Smith story at LB. Dom kinda compared him to another outstanding small LB he worked with. I really had high hopes for Jones, but So'oto really has opened my eyes. You gotta love his bend and aggressiveness. One has to wonder if Jones is the same athlete he was before his injury too. I also loved the concept of Elmore but he hasn't seemed to impress anybody that I've heard of.
    I think Peprah is as good as Burnett but obviously Burnett has more upside. You gotta love Peprah as a backup though right? Philly might have more "name" players in their backfield, but this unit is as good as theirs IMHO. I have Jennings over Levine even without concussions.
    I am completely okay with the ST personnel, I'd just like to see some "special" in ST.
    I will say this ThxJack, I understand how the Pack might be hampered more than other teams since they rely more on draft and so on. But every team has had to deal with it. The Packers were so deep that I don't think any of us are really expecting any draft picks to have a considerable impact. It would be nice if they do, but I sense they won't have to unless injuries mount again this season.
    I'd hope Sherrod gets a year to learn from Cliffy, Cobb will make an impact for sure, but he's not going to see alot of catches with the huge amount of receiving potential we have at WR, TE and RB. Alex Green will keep fresh and learn. House might be a dime at some point this season but he's probably not going to see the field alot. I suppose if any draft pick will have an impact immediately DJ will be the man. He just looks so unbelievably quick and good. I like Quarless ALOT and I think he and DJ could be the future if Finley isn't able to stay. Schlauderaff could see action in case of injury as well as DJ Smith but I'm hoping not. Taylor may have an impact as an H back. I'm excited to see if that happens.
    It looks like losses in free agency and pickups in the draft and returns of starters from injury has us in good stead. If you had to pick one weakness it's the D-line. You have to think if this team had a weakness it's best if it's on D since Dom will make a jigsaw of players into a complete picture, regardless of which pieces you give him.

    Swain and Havner have both been cut as was expected.

    Sure you can, Jack. We hide our players all the time over on the Viking's active roster! :)

    Assuming no other teams take these guys off of our practice squad.
