Saints 53-Man Roster Prediction

With two preseason games under their belts now and no cuts made yet, I think it's completely fair to take a stab at who I think will make the final roster of the 2012 New Orleans Saints.

So after the jump, you'll find my best guess at the Saints final 53-man squad. I'm sure this will generate plenty of discussion, as is it's purpose.

As more practices take place, more games are played and initial cuts begin, I will continue to update my roster predictions each week.

You'll notice that there isn't a lot of new blood on this team. Almost everyone this year was here last year. In fact, I went out on a limb and threw Jose Gumbs in there, simply because somebody's got to crack the roster by surprise.
