    QB:
    Roethlisberger
    Batch
    Dixon

    RB:
    FWP
    Mendenhall
    Moore
    Russell

    FB:
    Davis

    WR:
    Ward
    Holmes
    Washington
    Sweed (don't see him beating out Nate at least to start with)
    Baker

    TE:
    Miller
    Spaeth
    Dekker

    T:
    M Smith
    Starks
    Colon
    Essex

    G:
    Kemoeatu
    Simmons
    Mahan
    Hills (will shift inside for first year)

    C:
    Hartwig
    Stapleton (don't see him getting cut after we hung on to him last yr)

    DE:
    A Smith
    Keisel
    McFarland (I see him eventually signing)
    McBean (IR due to foot)
    Kirschke

    DT:
    Big Snack
    Hoke

    OLB:
    J Harrison
    Woodley
    Frazier
    A Harrison

    ILB:
    Farrior
    Timmons
    Foote
    Fox
    Humpal

    CB:
    Taylor
    BMac
    Townsend
    Gay
    Madison (wish we could bring in another vet here)

    FS:
    Clark
    Mundy

    SS:
    Polamalu
    An Smith (I think he is more suited for this position)

    K:
    Reed

    P:
    Sepulveda

    LS:
    Warren

    I kept 9 LB's due to special teams, I remember Cowher doing this back in the mid 90's (I think 96), it ended up helping cuz Lloyd blew out his knee in week 1. I would like to see Legursky make a push but I think he will end up on the practice squad. The WR group is really up in the air Rucker, Baker, Reid and Trannon will all be right there at the end. It will really come down to who steps up in camp and shows something. I would love to see another vet corner brought in here to solidify the secondary. Not that it is a concern but I always want more corners. Well thats my take, lets see how it shakes out!

    Re: 2008 Post-Draft Roster: Who makes it & who doesn't.

    wow.....how the heck did I forget Bruce Davis.......you can take A. Harrison off that list!!! Sorry was trying to do it off the top of my head.

    Speaking of Davis.....I think he could contribute much the same way Porter did early on....being rotated in on 3rd down to get after the QB. I like this kid and think he will eventually sooner rather than later take James' Job.

    Alright sorry screwed up already.....don't hold it against me guys.

    The final roster spot will come down to the return game... While mewelde moore makes the team, the question is can Bloom, Marion or Reid do a better job than Moore and is it signifiant enough to keep one of them, and therfore be forced to cut someone else (like Gary Russell).
