In my own opinion, all the drafted players will make it plus,

CB Cliff Harris,
WR Damaris Johnson
RB Chris Polk
S Phillip Taylor

The rest are camp fodder to me.

So you think 13 rookies make the 2012 roster? I disagree, as there are only 53 spots total.




Not including any rookies, these are my locks:
Code:
Vick/Kafka/Foles
McCoy/Lewis
Havili
Jackson/Maclin/Avant
Celek
Bell/Herremans/Dunlap
Mathis/Watkins
Kelce

Cole/Babin/Graham/Hunt
Jenkins/Patterson/Landri/Dixon
Rolle/Ryans/Chaney/Matthews
Asomugha/Rodgers-Cromartie/Marsh/Hughes
Allen/Coleman/Atogwe/Jarrett

Henry/Henery/Dorenbos

Total: 39


My rookie locks:
Code:
Cox
Kendricks
Curry
Foles
Boykin
Brown

Total: 6

Code:
Total Locks: 45





So these vets:
Code:
Edwards
Cooper/R Johnson/Gilyard/Hall
Harbor/Brackett
Gibson/Vandervelde/Reynolds
Vallos/Taylor

Tapp
Thornton
Clayton/Lloyd/Jordan/Fokou
Hanson/Do Johnson/Lindley
Nelson

Total: 22


Are fighting with these rookies:

Code:
Polk
McNutt
Da Johnson
Kelly
Washington
Harris
Thomas

Total: 7


Arrow That's 29 players total fighting for 6 spots on the final 53 man roster (and this number doesn't include players who I think won't make the roster at all).


I just see no way we keep 13 rookies. Maybe 9 or 10 tops, including the locks I mentioned above.

Bryce Brown showed up in great shape and is lighting it up displaying a wide range of skills for a rookie. I think he takes the back up gig and will contribute in a small role early on. Thats a NFL tailored body with some wheels unders it.

Yeah me too, hes studly. So far looks to be a potential steal. The big concern for teams interested in drafting him was would he be out of shape and rusty , so far seems to be the completely the opposite Very Happy I think Ted Williams and Duce Staley are good coaches and can relate and direct there advise to players very well, they wre the right guys to get Bryce Brown going.

Agree with Phire, except I don't consider Havili, Matthews, Hughes and Atogwe are not locks.
