Sonoco I would put Ginn, Gooden, Jones and Cartwright as locks, I don't see us not keeping these 4. Gooden brings value as a ILB, Jones and Cartwright are ST aces, and Ginn is a great return man, James isn't ready yet.
I can see Jacobs and Dixon both cut, might not be a need for 4 RBs, as one will be inactive on gameday.
Doubt we keep 6 WRs, no room. Owusu to PS, Williams cut.
I'd consider the top 6 of the final ten "depth chart" essentially as locks. For this exercise I just separated out the guys, barring injury, who likely won't have any kind of regular role on offense or defense and then stacked them draft board style. The top ten make the team.
I would have considered Cartwright a lock until we drafted James. It just looks like we'd have to cut the cord on a promising youngster to keep Cartwright around . . . and it would surprise me if we didn't have at least one "big back" on the roster.
- Ted Ginn Jr. - # 1 return man / #5 WR
- Perrish Cox - Special teams / #4 CB / KR #2
- Tramaine Brock - Special teams / #5 CB
- Tavares Gooden - Special teams / #4 ILB
- Mike Person - Developmental OL #8
- Jason Slowey - Developmental OL #9
- Darius Fleming -Special teams / Developmental OLB #4
- Trent Robinson - Special teams / Developmental Safety #4
- Colin Jones - Special teams / Developmental ???
- (Last Roster Spot) Ian Williams - Developmental DT
- Kyle Williams - Special teams / #6 WR
- Rock Cartwright - Special teams only
- Chris Owusu
- Curtis Holcomb
- Cam Johnson
I got a feeling that Hunter is expendable with James drafted. I just like Rock as a Special Teams Ace along with Colin Jones, and they can play positions if needed.
I noticed we did add Texas A&M DE Tony Jerod-Eddie to the roster, so I think he has a chance to beat out Ian Williams, along with Matthew Maisiflo has a shot, I would bet Masifilo, Jerod-Eddie, Owusu, Reuland, Derek Hall, Beeler/Slowey and a DB like Nelms or Holcomb are destined for the Practice Squad, and likely Cam Johnson if he doesn't make the team.
I would be happy with those 8 guys on the PS.
