Projected 53 Man Roster

Well, now that the preseason is over and we've had our first casualties of the numbers game, I figured it was time to put my 2 cents in as to who makes this roster.


QB: Drew Brees, Patrick Ramsey, Chase Daniel


Payloo realizes that Daniel can't support the team if Brees goes down this year, but he also won't make it through waivers. Ramsey is the number 2


RB: Pierre Thomas, Reggie Bush, DeShawn Wynn


Surprised about Chris Ivory not being there? Payloo pulls the old "Put a good, young player that we want to keep but is injured on IR" move. Expect to see him next year. Ladell Betts just got cut as well.


FB: Heath Evans


WR: Marques Colston, Robert Meachem, Devery Henderson, Lance Moore, Courtney Roby, Adrian Arrington


Montez Billings didn't do nearly enough to crack the deepest part of our roster. Roby gets in because of ST, Aarington because of what he did in the preseason.


TE: Jeremy Shockey, David Thomas, Jimmy Graham


No reason for Humphrey to stay now that Graham is healthy again.


OT: Jermon Bushrod, Jon Stinchcomb, Charles Brown, Zach Strief

OG/C: Carl Nicks, Jahri Evans, Jonathan Goodwin, Matt Tennant, Nick Leckey


DE: Will Smith, Alex Brown, Jimmy Wilkerson, Jeff Charleston, Junior Galette


Smith and Brown are locks, and Wilkerson, Charleston and Galette proved they can play. Today's release of Bobby McCray should solidify that.


DT: Sedrick Ellis, Kendrick Clancy, Anthony Hargrove, DeMario Pressley


Al Woods gets sent to the practice squad, Jay Ross and Remi Ayodele are victims of the number crunch.


MLB: Jonathan Vilma, Marvin Mitchell


OLB: Scott Shanle, Jonathan Casillas, Jo-Lonn Dunbar, K.C. Asiodu, ,Clint Ingram*


Sean Payton has said that Asiodu was not brought in just to replace Troy Evans(Don't have a link, it was in one of the Fleur-de-Links posts though), so he must be here to stay. Casillas and Shanle are the starters, Dunbar is a solid backup and Ingram starts the year on the PUP list.


CB: Tracy Porter, Jabari Greer, Randall Gay, Patrick Robinson, Leigh Torrence


Reggie Jones got beat deep twice last night, once for a TD, one that was a foot from being another TD.


FS: Malcolm Jenkins, Darren Sharper


Usama Young is done. He got burnt repeatedly against the Colts in the SB, and since D# will be back for Week 1, Young gets cut. Don't be surprised to see him brought back if Sharper gets hurt again, though.


SS: Roman Harper, Pierson Prioleau, Chris Reis


Chip Vaughn showed last night that he's not ready for the Big Leagues yet. He gets stashed on the PS.


ST: Garrett Hartley, Thomas Morstead, Jason Kyle
