A few other guys may have seen a bit more of him than me but he seems to me right on the bubble if he makes the final 53. Curry (if healthy), Wheeler, McClain, Ihenacho, Burris and Goethal are all ahead of him in the pecking order so he's fighting with guys like Burnett and Bosworth just to sneak into the roster. Hasn't really distinguished himself yet but hasn't done a 'Goodson' either!

If he indeed does make it into the 53, barring a speight of injuries he won't see much playing time apart from special teams. Thats not to say he can't be a decent contributor in the future but it may take some time. From what i've read seems like a decent, hard working kid though.

It will depend on his ST play in my opinion, as he would be at best 3rd string LBer. Hasn't made any 'bad' plays though from what I remember.

He's done well in limited action and I know he was a very good coverage LB in college, so he may have a future role in some nickel packages, but for now he'll be a ST guy if he makes the roster.

depends... If A Curry is put on the PUP list.. I hear he might be back for the opener...

If he does then Stupar wont make it

Curry Burris
McClain Goethel
Wheeler Illnacho

PT more likely!
