He's in there. I listed him with the linebackers. I believe he'll be used in coverage more next season like a linebacker and less like a defensive lineman.

Alright. I disagree with that, but at least he's on there!

I think there will be more than 52 and fewer than 54 guys. Tom Brady will be one of them. The rest....who knows.

QB. Brady, Mallett, Kafka. 3

RB. Ridley, Vereen, Washington, Blount. 4

TE. Gronk, Hernandez, Ballard, Hooman, 4

OL. Solder, Mankins, Wendell, Connolly, Vollmer. Cannon, Svitek
McDonald. 8

WR. Amendola, Dobson, Jones. Edelman, Boyce, Slater
6

DL. Ninkovich, Kelly, Wilfork, Jones, Abraham, Armstead, Love, Francis, Buchanon, Bequette 10

LB. Mayo, Spikes, Hightower, Collins, Fletcher, Beaharnais. 6

DB. Talib, Dennard, McCourty, T. Wilson, Arrington, Ryan, Harmon, A. Wilson, Dowling, 9

Specials. Gostkowski, Mesko, Aiken

I'm not sure Gregory makes the team. Might depend on whether Kafka makes an impression. If the ultimate intention is to trade Mallett, Kafka might stick. Or the Pats could start the developmental QB process again after the 2014 draft.

Yeah I could see substituting Ras-I for Gregory potentially.

If he ever stays on the field supposedly Dowling and even Ryans have safety flexibility. Gregory doesnt have the same positional flexibility.

I'm pretty sure the Pats have had at least one UDFA make the 53-man roster every year since 2002, so adjust your projections accordingly.

I hope FB Tony Fiammetta makes the roster over Blount.

At least he can block [both in the run game and in the pass game which Blount can't do], catch a little bit and contribute on special teams... can probably run better inside than Blount too, possibly.

[To be honest I'm not sure he can catch/run better than Blount but Blount sucks at it so he probably does]

I think if Fiammetta makes it, it would be over Hooman. I would suspect that Blount is competing with Bolden.

I don't see Hawaii Mike not making the final roster.

But i do agree Blount is probably competing with Boldin, who is on a much cheaper contract, so Boldin should win.
