Halfway through the preseason is enough time to rough out who makes the roster. After each game I've made some revisions and will again in around 24hr, but here's where I'm trending. How about you?

Offense - 24spots
QB: Quinn, Tebow, Weber (Cut Orton. He's a sub-average reserve QB)
RB: Moreno, McGahee, Johnson (carry another on the P-Squad)
FB: Larsen or Sylvester (haven't decided)
TE: Fells, Thomas, Grankowski, Green as a #2receiving TE and #6WR
WR: Lloyd, Royal, Decker, Davis, Willis or Anderson (Thomas PUP'd)

OT: Clady, Franklin, Clark
OG: Kuper, Daniels, Beadles
OC: Walton, Olsen or Byers (keep one, P-Squad the other)

Defense - 26spots
S: Moore, McCarthy, Dawkins, Carter, Bruton
CB: Bailey, Vaughn, Goodman, Harris, Thompson (Squid probably replaced by a waiver pickup)

WLB: Williams, Woodyard, Kelly or Bowen
MLB: Irving <-> Mohamed (haven't decided who's better)
SLB: Miller, Robinson

RDE: Dumervil, Harvey
UT: Thomas, Vickerson, Jarmon
NT: Bunkley, Unrein or Presley (probably replaced by a waiver pickup. Warren PUP'd)
LDE: Hunter, Ayers

SP-Teams 3spots
Paxton, Prater, Colquitt

He also appears to be unhappy with Dawkins and Ayers.

The perception of Orton here is maddening. It's ok not to want him, but now he's a SUB-PAR reserve? He'd probably be the leagues best back up and is AT LEAST an average starting QB in this league. He's not elite, probably never will be, but he's not complete **** either.

Not a single poster here at the Mane that knows enough about the Broncos to speculate a 53-man roster? Maybe my comment, directed at Dagmer the Troll, to "Put up or STFU bch" should apply to most every poster.

teknic - "He also appears to be unhappy with Dawkins and Ayers."
Stugs - "Did he really just cut the starting QB who has recently been given millions of dollars?"
Uber - "He also thinks Stanley Daniels is a better start than Beadles."
SoCal - "Joe Mays doesn't even make the team?"

Alright, I guess since I've been called out, I'll have a go at this.

The Final 53

Offense
QB: Orton, Quinn, Tebow (Tebow sees a few option plays and goal line plays a week)
RB: McGahee, Moreno, Ball (JJ or Gable on the PS)
FB: Larsen (Fells and Green may get some looks at FB throughout the season)
TE: Fells, Thomas, Rosario, Green
WR: Lloyd, Royal, Decker, Anderson, Willis (not sure who's cut if Thomas returns during the season)
LT: Clady, Clark
LG: Beadles, Hochstein
C: Walton, Olsen (Olsen is kept as a C/G)
RG: Kuper, Hochstein
RT: Franklin, Clark (I think the OL would perform better in the short term with Franklin at G and Beadles at RT, but Fox seems to want Franklin at RT from day one)


Defense
FS: Moore, Bruton
SS: Dawkins, McCarthy, Carter
CB: Bailey, Goodman, Vaughn, Cox, Thompson
WLB: Williams, Woodyard
MLB: Mays, Irving, Mohamed (Mohamed could end up on the PS)
SLB: Miller, Haggan (Haggan may also see time at MLB)
RDE: Dumervil, Harvey
UT: Vickerson, Thomas, Jarmon
NT: Bunkley, McBean (McBean is the man who is out if Warren can come back this season)
LDE: Ayers, Hunter

S/T
LS: Paxton
K: Prater (I like Hauschka, so I think he sticks on the PS)
P: Colquitt

08-27-2011, 03:16 PM
Montrose,
I figure instead of carrying two FBs, we'll keep Gronkowski or Rosario as a backup FB. That gives us three typical TEs while still keeping Green as a situational receiving threat. I also don't think Taylor makes the team. He isn't very good, easily replaced by a P-Squad player, and Beadles can bump to RT as backup during a game. I'd probably give his spot to Bruton to bolster SP-Teams.

Boomhauer
08-27-2011, 03:27 PM
At backup NT ...
- I've got Warren PUP'd with Unrein or Presley making the team
- Montrose has Warren on the roster
- teknic has McBean with Warren a possibility
... In each scenario, we don't have an effective backup. As I mentioned in the OP, we'll probably make a waiver claim for the position. Anyone have thoughts or wants on who might be available?

He's below average. We've discussed this. This isn't really in debate.

(He'd make a fine backup, however)

Neither Thomas nor Warren are eligible for the PUP since they both participated in camp practices (and even games). It's either a spot on the 53-man or IR for them.

I'd probably give his spot to Bruton to bolster SP-Teams.

I thought that too but Fox has been raving about both Larsen and Sylvester quite a bit recently and Sylvester's even made it onto most of the 1st team ST units which is a really good sign. In terms of Taylor, Olsen, Hochstein and Clark - I actually expect some if not all of those guys to be eventually replaced by players Xanders picks up off waivers.

No Bruton Montrose? You think special teams has diminished that much this year?

Yeah, it hurt leaving he and Bruton off - I hope one or both make it. I was certain Warren was headed for IR until Wednesday when Fox was gushing about how well his surgery went and his forecast looks better than originally thought.

Neither Thomas nor Warren are eligible for the PUP since they both participated in camp practices (and even games). It's either a spot on the 53-man or IR for them.

Bingo (and he's referring to Marcus Thomas, not Demaryius who is eligible for the PuP list).

I love our safeties. We've got to have the best safeties in the league.
A good combination of veterans and promising rookies.
Our linebacking corp looks great. I can't wait to see them performing by week 7 or so when they'll be more of a cohesive unit.

When I was going over the roster to decide on a depth chart, I had the exact opposite thought. I think we have one of the weakest starting safety tandems in the NFL. We have an aging safety who struggles in the coverage (although is great on the blitz and a leader), and a rookie FS without elite speed and questionable run support. Could be in for a long season of getting burnt on deep throws.

I've been impressed with the abilities shown by McCarthy, Moore and Carter so far; that's good news and nice to watch.
Remember, those kids are raw to the core, and they can only get better with playing time.
I agree with Dawkins, his contribution to this team is more from the intangibles aspect than the tangibles.
He can still play, but he can't do it forever, and he may end up showing his age at times this season...

Boomhauer
08-28-2011, 06:42 PM
A couple of you have Willis and Anderson making the team, in absence of Davis. Both Willis and Anderson are 'slot-type' receivers that would sub for Royal and Decker - the same role played by Rod and Eddie, while Davis is the 'go-type' receiver that would sub for Lloyd - the same role played by Lelie. When we go 4-wide, typically another 'go-type' receiver (Davis) will come in on the outside.

If we keep 6WRs - all three probably make the squad. If we only keep 5WRs - I doubt both Willis and Anderson make it since neither can sub for Lloyd like Davis can.

I was surprised that McBean made your roster over Hunter. I thought Elway said on Twitter that they saw Jarmon playing inside in the 4-3 after the trade. Has he been playing DE more than DT so far this preseason.

And as far as I can tell, Thomas is on the PUP. (via http://rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/202427/demaryius-thomas-will-start-season-on-pup)

I just finished up watching the game for the 2nd time and he just was atrocious. I noticed it during the game but focused on him more today and it stood out so much more.

He is a major part of the short yardage issues which still are weak, albeit improved.

Right after we cut Nate Jones, Larsen should be next. Which of our TEs can fill in at FB?

I think Syllvester has a legitimate shot of making it at FB behind Fells. Larsen might be going the way of the dodo.

I have a tough time evaluating Larsen--he's just a solid football player and will do whatever the team wants. Hard to hate on someone like that, and while I haven't really critiqued his run blocking, I wouldn't find it hard to believe that he's sub-par.
