    Re: Final 53

    I'm pleased that they kept a lot of young players (with the exception of the DL). Worthington and Harris both have potential and hopefully they will both make the PS. I can't see why Burnett would stick around here, but I hope he goes to the PS as well. I'd also like Cromartie-Smith to stick around. As for the rest of the PS, I'd rather that we found our talent elsewhere. I'd love to see them bring Pat White to the PS as a WR.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    I think Ben cost us even more young talent because we have had to keep extra gunners on STs. Why?
    Because we can't make ONE mistake on special teams and in fact need to make some super human plays there. I imagine either Madison or Mundy gets cut once Ben comes back. The lineblood of the team comes from the youth development.
    I'm disappointed about a few young plays being cut.
    We have more garbage OL eating up spots due to Colon being hurt. We've throw a bunch of garbage at the spot hoping someone will stick, but its eating up space for budding talent.

    When Ben comes back, we cut one of the QB's. There is no reason to keep 4 on the 53 when he is eligible.

    Re: Final 53

    Surprised & a little disappointed Burnett got cut so early in his career- thought there was something to work with there.

    That said, Crezdon Butler has looked good & probably makes Burnett expendable.

    The OL looks about right. Looks like Essex holds the RG spot. Foster, in Chadman's opinion, is the better option.

    DL...can only hold so many guys for a 3 man position. Worthington & Harris, despite many fears to the contrary, are good candidates to make the PS. Smart move by the FO, as the other option was to cut either a WR or LB- and had they done that, it's more unlikely a Antonio Brown or Sly make it to the PS- they have a greater demand on the open market.

    RB looks light on for experience- and if Mendy goes down, lets hope Dwyer/Redman can fill in, because Moore is not an every-down type RB. Here's betting Dwyer, if Mendy was to get hurt, would become 'the guy'.

    There will be a QB controversy when Batch leads us to 4-0 then gets cut following the return of Ben and Lefty.

    If Batch and Dixon team up to win us 4 games and look surprisingly good doing it, then cut Leftwich when Ben returns. I don't see any way we hold onto 4 QB's after the first month. None.

    I think the Leftwich injury cost Burnett his roster spot for now. If Byron's injury didn't happen, I think we would have kept Leftwich and Dixon, cut Batch, and would have one more spot to play with (at least until Ben came back).

    That, of course, assumes that there was other budding talent available. There wasn't. They cut Urbik and Hartwig, because they were clearly the two worst options on the line. They kept Legursky, Hills, Foster, Chris Scott (he's on PUP, not cut), and Pouncey. That's a 2nd yr G-C, a 3rd yr T, 2nd year swing T/G, a rookie T, and a rookie C. You could build a starting line out of our young lineman if Scott wasn't hurt. So I'm not sure how much more youth they could have kept.
