    I have it down to 54 players, need to be at 53. The Qty column represents the number of players I expect us to keep at the position. Those colored in red represent where I believe the last roster spot will come from to get us to the 53 man roster. Could use a TE as a FB again so FB highlighted.

    Couple pts of interest though. Yellow is presumed to make the roster, Pink is best guess to make the roster and grey is Practice Squad. In pre post mode not showing CB Louis-Jean and Trice whom I think may be going to the practice squad. All along I presumed Hayden would make the team at CB, looking at his age I wonder if we will opt to keep a younger player and let Hayden go. Camp will be critical to Hayden and CJ Wilson and Demonte Hurst. Only 1 of them will probably make the roster as I suspect Frey will make it.

    The Linebackers will be interesting also. Greene may be on the bubble with UDFA Jones. Last point is I have 8 players grey for PS but only 5 can actually go to PS. If we only keep 2 MLB's then a player like Lattimore would have to go to the PS to back up the position. Camp will be interesting below are my pre-camp thoughts

    I will be surprised they let Nate Collins go, so I am leaning towards 10 on DL.

    Interesting no Palmer.

    Yeah the interchangeability of the OL will probably be where the 54 goes down to 53 as I had posted. Think they like Ola and some of the rookies though. Will be interesting if Joe Long makes the squad over a rookie.

    Really be surprised they keep 4 RB and FB/ Its probably the only way Lynch sticks but who knows at this point.

    Originally I had 5 at CB as well but last yr we had six and lots of young talent there so this will be a good one to watch also I believe. Especially knowing Tillman is probably gone after this yr. Playing Nickel so often it only leaves 2 on the bench. Maybe Vereen is interchangeable in case of emergency.

    Forgot about Collins, they are big on him, but everything I've read is they are big on Bass also, and to be honest Collins job got put on notice w/Sutton and if they do plan on using Houston at DT, even only partially, that's a 3rd body at DT, and it sounds like they plan on using Ego at DT a little also, there's 4. Then again I was going off the board though, a lot of variance on what will likely happen. I really don't believe Lynch makes the squad, just pontificating on the idea that the team didn't trust Bush to run last year, and Ford got less carries them him which means they might not like him that much either.

    Since the great Mannelly has announced he won't come back, do the Bears really need to keep a LS on the final roster? Why not give that job to De La Puente? He will make the roster anyway. That way we can save a spot for someone else. What do you think?

    Gonna be quick busy at work.

    Wow, so little faith in Palmer. The coaches have said it is right now his job to lose.

    Groy doesn't make the 53 man roster.

    De La Puenta is not a long snapper.

    Lynch is definitely practice squad. I think Draughn over Ford.

    True, de la Puente is not a LS. That's become a very specialized position lb and not one an OL usually fills. LS are usually a little smaller LB or TE size guys. Mannelly was bigger than most but still only 265lbs not 300lbs+.

    Sorry, but I'm still not sold on the guy. How can a QB with absolutely no experience as starter and only 10 complete passes for 59 yards and 2 INTs be Cutler's backup?
