Updated Saints 53-Man Roster Prediction

New, comments

The Saints play their second game of the preseason against the Patriots this Saturday so we're taking our third crack at projecting the final 53-man roster.

Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints are now halfway through their 2015 training camp as they depart The Greenbrier and continue camp from the comfort of their own home on Airline Drive in Metairie. And as we get closer and closer to the start of the regular season, the final roster picture becomes more clear with each passing week.

So below is my third Saints roster projection of 2015. You can compare this one to my first attempted projection back in May and my recent one from last week. I made little change to the defense (except switching Kyle Wilson for Damian Swann) or special teams and made only a few minor changes on offense. I dropped Luke McCown for Ryan Griffin (Roll Wave!), dropped Nick Toon to add Willie Snead, and got rid of Lance Lewis to make room for guard Mike McGlynn. That's it.

Let me know what you think! Feel free to offer your own roster projections in the comment section below.
