Although it seem tough to cut someone - I just don't see how they keep all the RBs - I see Rock may get cut or LMJ goes to PS.
Also, although they signed Ginn, by the end of camp with all the potential talent at returner - Cox, Williams, Owusu, LMJ, I see Ginn my well be let go.
Lastly, as much as I love the atheticism of Davis and Walker, I wish they would see the value of the "garbage man" TE to the QB and keeping drives alive.
I have Cox now as a lock, he looks great and looks like the 3rd CB, which makes us deep, as Cully is as good as him. I see Kilgore listed as 2nd Center, so he would be next man up.
I think Rock is a lock, he is a fast ST ace, if Ginn goes down again then put Rock at KR. Ginn is a lock, unless somehow the team feels fine with Williams, then he is staying. I wouldn't chance it with James, he isn't consistent, Cox should focus on CB. Also doubt James is cut, he would be swooped up, wouldn't make it to PS.
This is updated for me, locks are as follows.
QB- Alex and Kaep
RB- Gore, Hunter, Jacobs, Cartwright and James
WR- Crabs, Moss, Manningham, Ginn and Jenkins
TE- Vernon and Delanie
C- Goodwin and Kilgore
DE- Justin, McDonald, Dobbs
NT- Sopoaga and RJF
OLB- Brooks and Aldon
ILB- Willis, Bowman, Grant and Gooden
CB- Rogers, Brown, Cully and Cox
S- Goldson, Whitner and Spillman
ST- Akers, Lee and Jennings
Thats a total of 42 locks right now.
Battles as I see it.
3rd QB- Josh Johnson vs Scott Tolzien
6th WR(If we keep 6)- Kyle Williams vs UDFAs(Palmer, Tyms and Owusu)
Possible extra TE- Konrad Reuland (Not a battle, just a decision)
7-9 OL(If 9 are kept)- Joe Looney, Leonard Davis, Jason Slowey, Mike Person and Derek Hall
6 DL- Will Tukuafu vs Ian Williams (Or both are kept since we keep only 2 actual TEs)
3rd and 4th OLB- Haralson vs Johnson vs Bakhitari
5th CB- Brock vs McBath vs Nelms vs Potential vet
4th S- Trenton Robinson vs Michael Thomas (Jones kept if we feel it's a need, which is possible)
Guys with way way long shot to make team:
FB- Dixon and Bell
WR- Swain, Hannula and Hastings
TE- Celek and Sawyer
OL- Wiggins, Netter
DL- Jerod-Eddie, Butrym and Masifilo
LB- Holland, Wilhoite and Brown
CB- Purvis and Mosley
ST- Tavecchio and Nelson
