Panthers Late June 53 Man Roster Prediction

It's been a couple weeks since the last prediction and given one of my picks for making the roster has already been cut it's time for a new one. I used strike out to highlight the changes:

Offense (22):

QB (3): Cam Newton, Derek Anderson, Jimmy Clausen

RB (2): DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart

FB (1): Mike Tolbert

TE (3): Greg Olsen, Gary Barnidge, Ben Hartsock

WR (4): Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, David Gettis, Chris Manno, Seyi Ajirotutu (Adams & Pilares too)

OL (9): Jordan Gross, Amini Silatolu, Ryan Kalil, Geoff Hangartner, Byron Bell, Jeff Otah, Garry Williams, Bruce Campbell, Mike Pollack

Defense (26):

DT (5): Ron Edwards, Sione Fua, Terrell McClain, Andre Neblett, Frank Kearse

DE (5): Charles Johnson, Greg Hardy, Frank Alexander, Antwan Applewhite, Thomas Keiser, Jyles Tucker

LB (7): Jon Beason, Luke Kuechly, James Anderson, Jordan Senn, Jason Phillips, Ken Onatolu, Jason Williams

CB (5): Chris Gamble, Brandon Hogan, Captain Munnerlyn, Josh Norman, Darius Butler

S (4): Charles Godfrey, Sherrod Martin, Haruki Nakamura, Reggie Smith

Special Teams (5):

K: Olindo Mare

P: Brad Nortman

PR: Joe Adams

KR: Kealoha Pilares

LS: JJ Jansen

Key Cuts: LB Thomas Davis (retires), WR Armanti Edwards, S DJ Campbell, CB RJ Stanford, RB Josh Vaughan, DE Eric Norwood, S Jordan Pugh, T Lee Ziemba, FB Richie Brockel, OL Zack Williams, WR Darvin Adams.

Comments:

  • I hate to predict it but I'm sticking with TD deciding to hang it up
  • I'm concerned about Kearse appearing out of shape and think with Greg Hardy a solid option to rotate in at DT that we only keep four
  • I added LB Jason Williams as I think we will look to be deep at LB given how thin it got last year
  • I added WR Ajirotutu because he's looked good in OTAs and he has the knowledge and experience of having played a year in Rivera & Chud's system.

I also decided to add practice squad predictions though its a futile endeavor. Last year the Panthers kept only 2 or 3 players from camp on the PS and instead grabbed guys let go from other teams. But I'll give it a shot anyway:

Practice Squad: WR Darvin Adams, WR Jared Green, OL Zack Williams, T Matt Reynolds, RB Tauren Poole, DE Ryan Van Bergen
