Buffalo Bills Training Camp: Pre-Camp Final Roster Predictions

The Buffalo Bills have begun their temporary takeover of St. John Fisher College in Pittsford over the last 24 hours, and players can start arriving today for training camp that technically begins tomorrow, but officially hits the practice field on Thursday.

Exercises like this will be much more interesting once we get to the other side of camp and pre-season action, no doubt, but I was in the mood to re-examine Buffalo's roster and take a stab at predicting the final 53 we'll see about six weeks for now. It's after the jump.

Here's my pre-camp look at what the final roster may look like come Week 1. Take a look at the amount of talent on the cut list: if the list of struggling players is small this summer, the Bills will have a lot of very difficult decisions to make come early September.
