Final 53 Man Roster Prediction (FedEx Al)

(Image via

Better late than never I suppose, Figured I would get this in now before final cuts start coming out today.

QB (3)
Robert Griffin III
Kirk Cousins
Colt McCoy

Thoughts: Skins may still dangle Cousins for a big trade, but I see the 'Skins ready to bring him in if RGIII falters or gets hurt in the first few games.

RB/FB (5)
Alfred Morris
Darrel Young
Roy Helu Jr.
Chris Thompson
Lache Seastrunk

Thoughts: Speed kills and while I really like Redd, I think the 'Skins try to stash him away on the practice squad - will be called up if injury.

TE (3)
Jordan Reed
Logan Paulson
Niles Paul

Thoughts: No change since camp started.

WR (6)
Pierre Garcon
DeSean Jackson
Andre Roberts
Santana Moss
Ryan Grant
Aldrick Robinson

Thoughts: Pretty much been this group of six for awhile.

OL (9)
Trent Williams
Shawn Lauvao
Kory Lichtensteiger
Chris Chester
Tyler Polumbus
Spencer Long
Morgan Moses
Tom Compton
Josh LeRibeus

Thoughts: Hmmm....still think LeRibeus and Compton are on the bubble, but I think the 'Skins are happy with nine O-Linemen.

DL (6)
Barry Cofield
Jason Hatcher
Chris Baker
Jarvis Jenkins
Kedric Golston
Clifton Geathers

Thoughts: Stephen Bowen will start the season on the PUP list, so its Clifton Geathers' job for now.

OLB (4)
Brian Orakpo
Ryan Kerrigan
Trent Murphy
Gabe Miller

Thoughts: Miller slightly edges out Everette Brown for the last OLB spot

ILB (5)
Perry Riley
Keenan Robinson
Adam Hayward
Akeem Jordan*
Will Compton

Thoughts: *Sharpton's injury keeps him off the roster depending on how severe Jordan's injury was from last night.

CB (5)
DeAngelo Hall
David Amerson
Tracy Porter
EJ Biggers
Baushad Breeland

Thoughts: Just didn't get enough from Richard Crawford or Chase Minnifield to justify keeping 6 CBs.
Both Crawford and Minnifield have practice squad eligibility.

S (4)**
Ryan Clark
Brandon Meriweather
Bacarri Rambo
Phillip Thomas
Trenton Robinson**

Thoughts: The Redskins go with experience over youth with Robinson who will be on the roster for at least as long as Meriweather is suspended. Could be longer if Phillip Thomas is seriously hurt.
** Five S listed because of impending Brandon Meriweather suspension.

LS: Nick Sundberg
P/H: Tress Way
K: Zack Hocker

Thoughts: When Way is kicking well he has amazing distance and hangtime, better than Malone. Hocker is just a better kickoff specialist and the Redskins know they'll need to pin opposing offenses back this season.
