Buffalo Bills 53-Man Roster Projection, Pre-Season Week 1

Just prior to the start of training camp, I published my first Buffalo Bills 53-man roster projection. Now that the Bills have completed most of their public camp practices as well as their first pre-season game, it's time for me to publish an update to that projection.

After the jump, you can view the roster, and note that I've made five fairly minor changes since the original projection was published three weeks ago. Feel free to leave your own rosters (or just tweak mine) in the comments section!
