Just how it sounds, this thread will be used to document our predictions on the final 53. You can obviously just post a new prediction every time you change your mind about a certain player/position.

I'll start us off:

Offense: 24
QB: Russell Wilson // Tarvaris Jackson // Terrelle Pryor
HB: Marshawn Lynch // Christine Michael // Robert Turbin
FB: Kiero Small // Derrick Coleman
WR: Percy Harvin // Doug Baldwin // Paul Richardson // Jermaine Kearse // Kevin Norwood // Ricardo Lockette
TE: Zach Miller // Anthony McCoy // Luke Willson
OT: Russell Okung // Justin Britt // Michael Bowie
OG: JR Sweezy // Alvin Bailey // James Carpenter
OC: Max Unger // Lemuel Jean-Pierre

Defense: 25
LEO: Cliff Avril // Benson Mayowa // Jackson Jeffcoat
DT: Brandon Mebane // Tony McDaniel // Jordan Hill // Jesse Williams
LDE: Michael Bennett // Cassius Marsh // Greg Scruggs
OLB: KJ Wright // Bruce Irvin // Malcolm Smith // Kevin Pierre-Louis
MLB: Bobby Wagner // Heath Farwell
FS: Earl Thomas // DeShawn Shead
SS: Kam Chancellor // Jeron Johnson
CB: Richard Sherman // Byron Maxwell // Jeremy Lane // Tharold Simon // AJ Jefferson

Special Teams: 3
K: Steven Hauschka
P: Jon Ryan
LS: Clint Gresham

PUP List: 1
WR Sidney Rice

Practice Squad: 8
OL Jared Smith
CB Eric Pinkins
DT Jimmy Staten
SS Dion Bailey
LB Horace Miller
QB B.J. Daniels
RB Spencer Ware
LB Korey Toomer

Notable Cuts
QB Keith Price
LB O'Brien Schofield
WR Chris Matthews
DT D'Anthony Smith

Notes: The last roster spot came down to Robert Turbin, Heath Farwell, and O'Brien Schofield, with the latter missing out on the final 53 due to the fact that I determined he wouldn't be used much at LEO with Avril/Irvin/Mayowa/Jeffcoat on the roster and he wasn't valuable enough as a rotational LB or special teamer with the addition of KPL. The Seahawks have kept 5 total RBs every year since Pete has been the HC, so I stayed with that pattern to keep Turbin on the roster, with Spencer Ware just narrowly missing out on a spot to Kiero Small.

I think the team will be forced to keep Jeffcoat on the final 53 (though not the active gameday roster) to ensure not losing him to another team like they did with Chris Harper. With Clemons gone I think this team is going to be looking for as many LEO guys as they can fit on the roster, and they have 4 with the way I've predicted it.

Staten and Pinkins are the two guys from this draft going to the practice squad as both players need some serious refinement to their game. I could see Staten getting called up later if the team is forced to IR or PUP Jesse Williams. I just narrowly put BJ Daniels over Keith Price because I really don't think Price has much potential at this level. DeShawn Shead barely takes a roster spot from Dion Bailey due to the fact that he has shown the ability to play S and CB.

QB: Wilson, Jackson, Pryor (3)
RB: Lynch, Michael, Turbin, Ware (4)
FB: Small (1)
WR: Harvin, Baldwin, Kearse, Richardson, Norwood, Lockette (6)
TE: Miller, Willson, McCoy (3)
OT: Okung, Bowie, Britt (3)
OG: Sweezy, Carpenter, Bailey (3)
C: Unger, Jeanpierre (2)

Total Offense: 25

LEO: Avril, Mayowa, Schoefield (3)
LDE: Bennett, Marsh, Scruggs (3)
DT: Mebane, McDaniel, Hill, Williams (4)
OLB: Wright, Irvin, Smith, Pierre-Louis (4)
MLB: Wagner, Coyle (2)
CB: Sherman, Maxwell, Lane, Adams, Simon (5)
S: Thomas, Chancellor, Johnson, Bailey (4)

Total Defense: 25

PUP: Rice

So, similar - except I went with Ware instead of Coleman, Schofield instead of Jeffcoat (though Jeffcoat is cheaper and has longer term so I can see him getting the nod), went Coyle over Farwell (I think they would like to find someone to be the new Heath and this could be the guy), Adams over Jefferson and Bailey over Shead.

So you guys are saying that Pryor will make the 42 man roster. Any word on how he's doing in OTA's? Has he improved his passing? I know he's had a tendency to do that in the off season and early on during the season. Any input?

Here's ESPN's version -

Some notable guys that didn't make the cut.
- FB K. Small (kept Ware and Coleman at FB)
- WR S. Rice (chose Ricardo Lockette instead due to ST ability)
- DT J. Hill (Lots of competition all over the DL, UDFA DE Jeffcoat also was sent to the PS)
- LB O. Schofield (KPL and Toomer were the chosen ones here)
- Safeties E. Perkins and D. Bailey (the writer kept Terrance Parks on the final 53, should be another one to watch during TC).

I think he had some interesting thoughts and certainly went against the grain in some spots. I think Rice makes the team and we can worry about which WR can play special teams later. I just have no faith in Lockette's ability to ever produce on offense.
It'd be a shame to see Jordan Hill get cut but I didn't see anybody that clearly should have been cut in his place.
