there once was a team all purple and gold
who invested in Yutes and waived the old
so a question remains of who gets the nod
of the ten who make the practice squad
so let's read your picks here, if you feel so bold...

Hard to make selections at this point, but there could be an interesting name out there... David Fales.

He's yet to play a snap for the Bears.

Out of our draft picks, I think Kendall James is a good candidate.

I think Kain Colter is a strong candidate

I agree with you on that one.

Coaching staff is high on Zac Kerin, I think he makes it. Banyard is a lock. Kendall James a near lock. Exum a lock if he doesn't crack the 53. Same goes for Watts.

Banyard is only fringe eligible for our practice squad. He's already been on it for two accrued seasons, so he's eligible for a third season if we keep at least 53 players on our active/inactive roster at all times.

Normally players don't spend three seasons on the same practice squad, so Banyard may give way to Dom Williams or someone else that is released.

IS Banyard allowed in now under the expansion of the practice squad?

Wasn't there something about the two extra spots being reserved for players that were normally over the limit?

Under the agreement, 2014 and 2015 Practice Squads will increase from the current maximum of eight players to 10 players. In addition, the criteria for Practice Squad eligibility has been expanded in two respects.

Arrow First, a player must have a minimum of six games - up from the current three games - on a Practice Squad in order for that season to count as one of the player's three permissible seasons of Practice Squad service.

Arrow Second, each club will be permitted to sign a maximum of two Practice Squad players who have earned no more than two accrued seasons of free agency credit. Absent this exception, a player who has earned one or more accrued seasons would not be eligible for a Practice Squad unless the player spent fewer than nine games on a club's 46-player active list in each of his accrued seasons.

All other practice squad rules under Article 33 of the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement will remain in effect during the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

Bond is the 2nd team RG for the Rams this year, has the 6th highest PFF grade of all OG in preseason.

Given that example, they might try to protect some of this year's developmental late rounders by keeping them on the 53 instead of putting them on the practice squad -- Exum, Watts, Price, Stephen...

I think most of them were going to make the team, anyways.

Jeff Mathews was released by Atlanta today; he might be worth a look as a practice squad QB. Prototypical, big arm passer.

I like the idea of adding Jeff Matthews as a third QB for the practice squad.

I'd like to see Mike Mauti, Antone Exum, Antonio Richardson, and Kendall James on the PS.

I feel like Mauti would definitely be snatched up before the team could get him on the PS, maybe Tiny, too

Seahawks just waived Jackson Jeffcoat, wouldn't mind trying to snag him and possibly stash him

Mauti would also take up one of the two new "exception" practice squad spots.

He was active four 14 games last year and this accrued one free agent year.
