    Patriots 53 man roster as of right now

    Stone Cold Locks= Blue
    Likely= Green
    Bubble= black
    Practice squad= Orange/Red is the 9th PS position allowed by NFL rules for a player that lives outside the US. 

    53 Players minus the Practice Squaders.

    QB: Brady, Hoyer, Robinson
    RB: Morris, Taylor, Faulk, Maroney, Green
    TE: Crumpler, Gronkowski, Hernandez, Agnone
    WR: Moss, Holt, Price, Edleman, Tate, Stanbeck
    OT: Light, Vollmer, Kaczur, Welch, Bussey
    OG: Mankins, NealConnoly, Wendell
    C: Koppen, Larsen, Connoly

    Dline: Wilfork, T. Warren, G. Warren, Pryor, Wright, Brace, Deaderick, Weston 
    ILB: Mayo, Spikes, McKenzie,
    Guyton
    OLB: TBC,
    Cunningham, Crable, Murrell, Alexander
    CB: Bodden, Butler, McCourty, Springs, Wilhite,
    Wheatley
    S: Merriweather, Chung, Sanders, McGowan

    K: Gostokowski
    P: Zoltan (the great), Aussie Punter is eligable for 9th spot per NFL rules due to he lives outside the US.
    LS: Jake Ingrahm

    KR: Slater 

    Now, looking at this there are two weak areas as I see it right now... RB and OLB. And spots like O-line that could get better but are good enough for one more year if need be. I think this is a pretty solid 53 man Roster with some tallent on the PS. 
    Thoughts?

    some of the positions, like ILB S TE CB and maybe WR, could be taken care of for years. looks like they are getting ready for another run

    Once again, it looks like the OLB is still our biggest concern.  We can have all of the greatest DB's in the world, but if the opposing QB's have all day, like they have the last couple of years, we will get burned again!!!

    I agree sirpinochle, I think this is a solid roster maybe not as deep as 2008 but if they have a chance to upgrade a position or two with the second period of free agency (most people think there will be some very good veterans available as teams adjust their rosters after the draft compared to most years due to no cap hits) this team could be just about as scarey as 2008 was. I Also haven't taken into account any undrafted Free Agents. There will likely be one that at least makes the Practice Squad.

    Re: Patriots 53 man roster as of right now

    emily I agree but I think there is likely a move left to be made to bring in a OLB in the second period of free agency that runs now through the end of camp but starts in earnest on June first. Maybe even a trade if the right one is available somewhere. This year is unlike any before with the lack of a cap teams will be releasing players and trading players they find they don't need after they see how the draft picks do for a while more then ever before with no cap hits.

    I too am hoping some beast of a free agent is available in the next couple of months at OLB.  It would be so great to see someone who could consistantly get to the QB!!!

    I'm pretty sure Welker will start the season on PuP and not IR. From everything i've heard he's doing very well with his rehab.

    look either Burgess to return or a guy cut to join the OLB core

    Re: Patriots 53 man roster as of right now

    emily Welker is PUP in my opinion and then if he is able will come off and then obviously someone has to be cut or put on the PS.

    Hoyle... I also don't see LeVoir being on the team once final cuts are made.

    Rebs... I don't see Burgess being brought back unless he is still available and there is an injury or someone just really stinks it up etc. Unfortunately he was a waste of those picks (atleast the 3rd round one) because he was probably worth the 5th at most we also gave up.

    Reading your tea leaves told me that you think there are 7 open spots on the 53 man roster I can give you 3 guys who will make that roster,Anderson,Fletcher and possibly Pashall all three are UDFA's WR,OLB and RB,I wouldn't have put Fletcher in the OLB class but because of his size I'm pretty sure he won't be a down lineman. I watched Anderson all of the last 2 seasons as I found the MEAC conference had a lot of really good WR's and I enjoy the passing game,Anderson was an elite receiver in this league who caught a pass in 54 consecutive games! Some of the teams in his conference woul triple team him and he still would get free for a catch. Fletcher is Tedy Bruschi incarnate,might as well just issue this kid #53 and watch him play. Paschall is a crafty running back who follows his blocks really well and from what I could gather from the short clip he is hard to bring down. Oh and he doesn't Dance!

    I think he'll start on the PUP list which meanss he won't play for the first 6 games.

    I'm sure it was just a typo but the long snappers name is Ingram. I notice that you left off Lockett,Arrington,and Aiken those were three pretty solid special teams performers,also I guess neither Davis nor Williams will make the team,and they were late additions to last years squad as b/u linebackers. I will give you 5 names too watch.Ohrenberger,Deaderick,Fletcher,Anderson and Paschall I'm not a tea leaf reader but from the film I've watched on 4 of them I'd say their chances will be pretty good to make the team and I don't mean Practice squad. I don't know the rules pertaining to PS team members but I don't think that once you've been activated from the practice squad that you can return to it without first being waived so you might have a problem with sneaking Stanback through to the PS again.

    Re: Patriots 53 man roster as of right now

    Good overview DaBlade

    I'll go out on a limb and call Cunningham and Spikes locks since they are 2nd rounders.  Maybe even McKenzie too.  Crable I'd put on the bubble, but they must like something about him to keep him around.  Guyton may not be the best fit for the 3-4, so maybe he is on the bubble, but I like his grit and smarts.  Brace will get one more year to prove he was worth a #2.  Murrell I'd say is a maybe, not a lock.  He'll have to be a good special teamer and backup to unseat Woods and/or Ninkovich. Slater was among their top special teams players, I think he makes it, but over who I don't know.  Wouldn't be surprised to see Sanders traded at some point.

    Re: Patriots 53 man roster as of right now

    I agree Sanders getting traded makes a lot of sense but I thought it would happen prior to the draft. Maybe he gets delt to a team with an injury at Safety.

    Murell I think is a lock because he is a good special teams player. I put him on the 53 instead of Woods and Ninkovich. Another player I didn't know what I would do with and ultimately decided to keep on the 53 but put on the bubble was Wheatley. He has all the skills he just needs to put it together.

    Knew it was only a matter of time, it is not about the name on the back of the jersey its about the one in the front.  He's a liability and all those Merri fans keep living the dream.  The best player will start and I believe Chung will be that guy.  Look at all the picks and FAs.  The link between all is toughness sure tacklers, hell even the punter at 6'4" 232 can probably put some wood on some guys.

    IDK man. I just don't see how Merriweather isn't your best option. To be completely honest with you I think that Chung would start at Strong Safety and Merriweather play free. That way you have Merriweather who can raom the defensive backfield and be a ballhawk. Chung seems like a guy who can run up in run support, most likely do a better job then Merriweather in that aspect. I will admit that Merriweather had some moments in which he pretty blew and gave up huge plays nut so did the whole secondary.

    Removing Merriweather would be like the Titans starting a rookie RB over Johnson.

    Merriweather is the free safety and strong safety will be Chung. 

    The biggest issue here is Sanders... what do they do with him , he is too good to be a back up and would start for many teams. They have to trade him I would think.

    Cut Maryweather and Mcgowan.  Start Sanders and Chung, with Slater and Locket in reserve.  The draft was all about getting physical and Maryweather is as big a Nancy as they come ... well except for Maroney.
