The 53 Man Roster Final Prediction

1.0 is here. 2.0 is here.

So here it is. Not much else to say, let's just get to it.

Offense (24)​

QB (2)
Alex Smith
Colt McCoy

Thoughts: No change here. Kevin Hogan is eligible for the practice squad, so there's that.

RB (4)
Adrian Peterson
Chris Thompson
Rob Kelley
Kapri Bibbs

Thoughts: Samaje Perine still is struggling with fumbling. Also he doesn't bring anything to special teams like Kelley or Bibbs can do. 'Skins may keep 5 RBs but I don't see it. They may still sign a FB at some point, but right now I don't think that player is currently on the roster.

TE (3)
Jordan Reed
Vernon Davis
Jeremy Sprinkle

Thoughts: No Change

WR (6)
Josh Doctson
Paul Richardson
Jamison Crowder
Maurice Harris
Trey Quinn
Cam Sims

Thoughts: I think Sims makes the roster because he is more dynamic in the Red Zone than Quick can be. Also, I think the Redskins would be able to re-sign Quick if an injury did occur.

OL (9)
Trent Williams
Shawn Lauvao
Chase Roullier
Brandon Scherff
Morgan Moses
Ty Nsekhe
Geron Chrisitian
Tony Bergstrom
Player Not Currently on Roster

Thoughts: With Tyler Catalina having shoulder surgery, I think the 'Skins probably find another Guard on the waiver wire post cuts.

Defense (26)

DL (6)
Daron Payne
Jonathan Allen
Matt Ioannidis
Ziggy Hood
Anthony Lanier
Tim Settle

Thoughts: I know there was a last minute push for Phil Taylor, but I just don't see the team letting Ziggy Hood or Anthony Lanier go to keep him. Maybe the the team keeps seven DL but right now, I don't see it.

OLB (5)
Ryan Kerrigan
Preston Smith
Ryan Anderson
Pernell McPhee
Pete Robertson

Thoughts: Pete Robertson had a nice co-sack with Ryan Anderson in game 4 and is valuable on special teams. That's why he makes the roster.

ILB (5)
Mason Foster
Zach Brown
Josh Harvey-Clemons
Zach Vigil
Shaun Dion Hamilton

Thoughts: Spaight may still be on the roster, but he (like many of the LBs) had a horrible night tackling. Maybe the 'Skins try to put SDH on practice squad and keep Spaight, but I think they are afraid he'll get picked up elsewhere.

CB (6)
Josh Norman
Quinton Dunbar
Fabian Moreau
Danny Johnson
Greg Stroman
Adonis Alexander

Thoughts: Alexander has shown why the Redskins went after him in the supplemental draft. Still a raw talent, but makes the final 53.

S (4)
DJ Swearinger
Montae Nicholson
Deshazor Everett
Troy Apke

Thoughts: Pray that Apke doesn't have to play safety this year. I expect probably 2, maybe 3 safeties are on the practice squad.

Special Teams (3)​


Tress Way


Dustin Hopkins


Nick Sundberg

Thoughts: No change.

Practice Squad​
Kevin Hogan
JP Holtz
Simmie Cobbs Jr.
