    Good points. I think it would come down to keeping that extra FB and a 5th WR. Ovie is more valuable than a 5th WR. With the way Billick talks about Cory Ross, I just see the guy making this team in some capacity. Ross has had a good showing running the ball, so he wouldn't just be a KR/PR specialist. It will be interesting.

    I will say that this competition in camp is also aiding with the good showing by a Darling, Mike Smith, Dwan Edwards. These guys are not too comfortable. They are battling, and I think it maintains during the season. We are going to have a nice Practice Squad.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Re: Half way through Preseason 53-man Roster guesses.....

    For my first post I'll predict

    3 QB: Mcnair, Boller, St. Pierre
    6 RB: J Lewis, Mu Smith, M Anderson, O Mughelli, Daniels, Green
    5 WR: Mason, Clayton, Darling, D Williams, C Moore
    3 TE: Heap, Wilcox, Sypniewski
    3 OT: Ogden, Terry, Pashos
    3 OG: Mulitalo, Vincent, Chester
    3 C: Flynn, J Brown, Katula

    4 DE: T Pryce, T Suggs, J Johnson, R Green
    5 DT: Gregg, Ngata, Edwards, Bannan, Franklin
    2 ILB: R Lewis, Mi Smith
    4 OLB: A Thomas, B Scott, D Cody, T Johnson
    6 CB: Mcalister, Rolle, Ivey, Prude, Pittman, Martin
    3 S: Reed, Landry, Sapp

    1 K: Stover
    1 P: Koch
    1 RS: BJ Sams

    With Elling being signed after week 1 so as not to guarantee his salary for the year.

    TE (3) - Heap, Wilcox, Sypniewski
    OL (9) - Ogden, Mulilato, Flynn, Vincent, Pashos, Terry, Brown, Chester, M. Ogden (I think he gets signed if Rimpf goes IR).

    LB (5) - Ray, AD, Scott, Cody, Smith, T. Johnson
    CB (4) - CMac, Rolle, Ivy, Prude
    S (4) - Reed, Sapp, Landry, Winborne

    ST (5) - Stover, Elling, Katula, Sams, (Landetta or some vet)

    IR: Rimpf, Pittman, Ward, Daniels (somehow)

    PS: Daniels, Martin, LaTendresse, Olson, LaCasse, Contrell, Moses, that NFLE exchange player.


    My comments:

    Cory Ross is a RB in name only, but he makes this team.
    Sam Koch is not the answer as a punter nor a KOS.
    Dwan Edwards latches on.
    If Moore does not make the team, Ten Dresses will.
    I think Marques Ogden gets signed if Rimpf goes on IR.
    Pittman gets buried on the "IR" and somehow, I bet PJ Daniels gets on IR. It wouldn't surprise me if BJ Ward's "migraine" is setting him up for an "IR" placement.
    To bring this thread back, here are my revisions.

    (26)
    QB (3) - McNair, Boller, St. Pierre
    RB (4) - Jamal, Anderson, Smith, Ross
    FB (2) - Green, Mughelli
    WR (5) - Mason, Clayton, Williams, DVD, Moore
    TE (3) - Heap, Wilcox, Sypniewski
    OL (9) - Ogden, Mulilato, Flynn, Vincent, Pashos, Terry, Brown, Chester, (some OL that is signed).

    (27)
    DE (4) - Pryce, Suggs, Johnson, Stills
    DT (5) - Ngata, Gregg, Bannan, Franklin, Edwards
    LB (5) - Ray, AD, Scott, Cody, Smith, T. Johnson
    CB (5) - CMac, Rolle, Ivy, Prude, Martin
    S (4) - Reed, Sapp, Landry, Winborne

    ST (4) - Stover, Katula, Sams, Koch

    IR: Rimpf, Pittman, Ward, Daniels (somehow)

    WR (4) - Mason, Clayton, Williams, DVD

    S (4) - Reed, Sapp, Landry, Ward

    ST (4) - Stover, Koch, Katula, Sams

    IR: Rimpf

    PUP: Moore
    To update mine - 5 changes:

    QB (3) - McNair, Boller, St. Pierre
    RB (4) - Jamal, Anderson, Smith, Ross
    FB (2) - Green, Mughelli
    WR (5) - Mason, Clayton, Williams, DVD, Moore
    TE (3) - Heap, Wilcox, Sypniewski
    OL (8) - Ogden, Mulilato, Flynn, Vincent, Pashos, Terry, Brown, Chester,

    DE (4) - Pryce, Suggs, Johnson, Stills
    DT (5) - Ngata, Gregg, Bannan, Edwards, Franklin
    LB (6) - Ray, AD, Scott, Cody, Smith, Johnson/Haley
    CB (6) - CMac, Rolle, Ivy, Oglesby, Pittman, Purde
    S (3) - Reed, Sapp, Landry

    ST (4) - Stover, Koch, Katula, Sams

    1. No Dreoge at OL - they will only carry 8 unless they bring someone else in.

    2. Remove Ogelsby and add Martin at CB.

    3. Remove Ward since he's been injury waived.

    4. Add Ross as the 4th RB/back-up KR

    5. Moore is the 5th WR since he's now healthy

    Re: Half way through Preseason 53-man Roster guesses.....

    Does this mean that Ward is no longer a Raven?

    Also, maybe they should look to convert Pittman to safety.

    The only reason Moore is given so many chances is because he's 6'6. If he was 6'1, he would have been amongst the first cuts. I'd rather carry four WRs (Mason, Clayton, Williams, and Darling) if none of the other guys can beat out Moore.

    Lastly, isn't 5 DTs too much? What about switching Edwards to DE?

    Re: Half way through Preseason 53-man Roster guesses.....

    Here is my guess

    QB: McNair, Boller, St. Pierre (3)
    RB: Lewis, Smith, Anderson, Daniels (4)
    FB: Green, Mughelli (2)
    WR: Mason, Clayton, Williams, Darling, Moore (5)
    TE: Heap, Wilcox, Sypniewksi (3)
    OL: Ogden, Pashos, Mulitalo, Vincent, Flynn, Chester, Brown, Terry (8)

    DL: Suggs, Pryce, Ngata, Gregg, Bannan, Edwards, Franklin (7)
    LB: Lewis, Thomas, Scott, Cody, Johnson, Smith, Stills (7)
    DB: McAlister, Rolle, Ivy, Pittman, Prude, Martin, Reed, Landry, Sapp (9)

    ST: Koch, Stover, Katula, Sams (4)

    Thats 52, but I believe we'll sign someone out there to fill the 9th spot on the OL to make 53.

    I also counted Cody and Johnson as OLBs since they are listed as DE/OLB.

    I do not believe that both Ross and Sams will make the roster. Maybe if we had Zauner still, but we don't. I think the cutting of Elling shows that we aren't carrying dead weight as ST players this year. I do not think Ross has shown enough to make it over BJ.

    That is correct, he is no longer a Raven. The injury settlement jives more with the reports that they really didn't want him around any longer and is much more palatable from a salary cap perspective. If he was on IR, his entire $350K salary would count against the cap. Now, only the amount of the settlement will count.

    Lastly, isn't 5 DTs too much? What about switching Edwards to DE?
    Not really, given how they like to rotate them. And, you are correct, they do use Edwards at DE sometimes. It's probably best just to list them generically as DL (as RF2K6) did.

    yes, I think the Ravens have guys like Adalius and (Jarrett) Johnson that are tweener lineman/linebacker. To me, the strength of the team is the defensive front seven (which runs about 13 deep), where guys like Aubrayo can come in and make a few plays and rotate with Dwan and Ngata etc. Rod Green and Dennis Haley getting cut show how many guys they have; I'm sure those two, and others, will end up somewhere (maybe with Phil Savage's Cleveland ExRavens). real sorry to see them go by the way, esp Green.
