Packers 53 Man Roster 2013 | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers 53 Man Roster
With the Packers and NFL draft over, free agency long done, and undrafted free agents signed, the preseason 90 man rosters for most teams are set. Now coaching staffs get down to business of figuring out how to get that number down to 53 by week one. Here is my attempt at a very early 53-man roster prediction.

Quarterbacks: Aaron Rodgers, B.J. Coleman, Matt Brown (P.S.)- The Packers want Coleman to win the backup job, and if he does, Harrell gets cut and Brown goes to the practice squad.

Running Backs: Eddy Lacy, Dejaun Harris, Jon Franklin, Alex Green, John Kuhn (FB)- After spending two draft choices on running backs, I highly doubt that anyone else outside of these five players make the week one roster. That means James Starks's days are numbered.

Wide Receiver: Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall Cobb, Jarrett Boykin, Jeremy Ross, Charles Johnson- The first three are a given, and those first three are the league’s best trio. After that, it's anyone's ballgame. The coaches like Boykin and Ross added a spark in the return game late last year until he dropped the ball in San Francisco. I think Johnson beats out Kevin Dorsey for the last spot and Dorsey goes to the practice squad.

Tight Ends: Jermichael Finley, D.J. Williams, Ryan Taylor. Brandon Bostick. - The loudmouth is still number one on the depth chart. I expect a breakout season from Williams, and Bostick is interesting.

Offensive Line: Brian Bulaga, Josh Sitton, EDS, T.J. Lang, Derek Sherrod, Don Barclay, J.C. Tretter, Andrew Datko, David Bakhtiari- If this is the list of offensive lineman, Packers fans can finally rejoice at the departure of Marshall Newhouse. Right now the starting right tackle job is up for grabs.

Defensive Line: Ryan Pickett, B.J. Raji, Datone Jones, Mike Daniels, Josh Boyd, C.J. Wilson, Gilbert Pena, Mike Neal- Mike Neal and C.J. Wilson somehow keep their spots here. I like Gilbert Pena. Jerel Worthy returns from the PUP late season and one of the last three on this list loses their job.

Linebackers: Nick Perry, Desmond Bishop, Clay Matthews, A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones, Terrell Manning, Nate Palmer, Dezman Moses, Jamari Lattimore- A lot of interesting here. I think the Bishop trade talk was just gold ole' Ted blowing smoke up people's butts just for fun. The last draft choice the Packers made this year, Sam Barrington, goes to the practice squad.

Defensive backs: Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Casey Heyward, Devon House, Micah Hyde, Jarrett Bush, Sean Richardson, Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings, Jerron McMillian. This is the strongest position for the Packers and this might darn well be the deepest secondary in the league. These guys all make the roster, no sweat. There is nothing to see here, move along.
