Should be loaded this time around.
I think with Fleming being injured he either goes to PUP or is cut. Leaves Willis, Bowman, Wilhoite and Moody at ILB. At OLB Smith, Brooks, Haralson, Lemonier then if they are keeping Skuta at OLB it will be tough to decide between Skuta and Johnson. If they choose both thats 6 and seems unlikely. Could list Skuta at ILB even if they keep him at OLB... means 4/5 ILBs Bowman, Willis, Wilhoite/Skuta/Moody (2 of 3 or all 3) and then Smith, Brooks, Haralson, Lemonier, Johnson. Seems unlikely we would keep 5 at both spots.
Then DL I'd say Smith, McDonald, Dorsey, Williams, Carradine and possibly Dial are all locks. Leaves room for probably 1 or 2 more. Tukuafu and/or Dobbs. Okoye PS, Jerod-Eddie back to PS.
That's my bess guess. Who knows we could put Dial or Carradine on PUP and that means Tukuafu, Dobbs and Okoye could make it. As for ILB my best guess is Fleming PUP/Cut so Bowman, Willis, Wilhoite, Moody then at OLB Smith, Brooks, Haralson, Lemonier, Skuta. Fangio said Johnson has improved a lot so who knows could be hard to get rid of him. Really have no idea right now. We are so stacked this year could be the hardest to pick in a long time.
