So I'm looking through the latest Bills Digest and I see a list of players that are at Bills camp. I thought I would try to do a roster prediction using those players listed. I believe that the final roster and subsequent practice squad will be filled out with some players from other teams, that always happens. It would be near impossible to predict all of those so I'm going about this knowing it will be wrong, but here it goes anyway.
- Trent Edwards - J.P. Loseman - Gibran Hamdan
Runningback /Fullback (4)
Marshawn Lynch - Fred Jackson - Dwayne Wright - Darian Barnes
Wide Receivers (6)
Lee Evans - Josh Reed - James Hardy - Roscoe Parrish - Justin Jenkins - Steve Johnson
Tight Ends (4)
Robert Royal - Derek Fine - Derek Schouman - Courtney Anderson
Offensive Line (8)
Jason Peters - Derrick Dockery - Melvin Fowler - Brad Butler - Langston Walker - Jason Whittle - Kirk Chambers - Christian Gaddis
Defesive Ends (5)
Aaron Schobel - Ryan Denney - Chris Ellis - Chris Kelsay - Ryan Neil (DE/LS)
Defensive Tackles (4)
Marcus Stroud - John McCargo - Kyle Williams - Spencer Johnson
Poz - Angelo Crowell - Kawika Mitchell - Alvin Bowen - John DiGiorgio - Jon Banks - Blake Costanzo
Terrence McGee (McKee?) - Jabari Greer - Leodis McKelvin - Will James - Reggie Corner
Donte Whitner - Bryan Scott - John Wendling - Ko Simpson - George Wilson
Brian Moorman - Rian Lindell
Practice Squad (8)
Xaiver Omon (RB) - Jason Jones (WR) - Robert Felton (G/C) - Demetrius Bell (T) - Teraz McCray (DT) - Marcus Buggs (LB) - Kennard Cox (CB/S) - Nevin McCaskill (C)
I know that it is strange to keep so many WRs but I think that both Steve Johnson and Justin Jenkins make this team. Jenkins is solid on special teams and they really need Johnson's size, at 6-2 he is the 2nd tallest WR at camp. Parris(5-9), Reed and Evans (5-10), and Jenkins (6-0) are all shorter.
As afr as the LBs go, I think Costanzo's size plus the special teams ability of guys like Buggs and Bowen, make Ellison a goner. (just my prediction)
Jason Jefferson - Keith Ellison - Matt Murphy - Duke Preston (surprise?) - if he's not traded Ashton Youboty.
O.K. gripe/pick/scream/yell away.
