D&C's Maiorana Projects The Final 53

Recommended Posts

Here's what the Bills' 53-man roster could look like in Week 1 against the Jets

 

Sal Maiorana, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 3:31 a.m. ET May 9, 2019
 

ORCHARD PARK – Last summer when the Buffalo Bills pulled into training camp at St. John Fisher College, all eyes were on the quarterback competition, specifically how rookie first-round draft pick Josh Allen was performing.

When the Bills return in late July for their 20th visit to Pittsford, eyes will be spread all around the practice fields because with all the off-season additions to the roster, there will be several competitions unfolding, a few of which could be fascinating.

Between now and then there will be a rookie mini-camp, organized team activities, and a mandatory mini-camp that will help coach Sean McDermott and his staff get to know all of these new players, reconnect with returning players, and develop a plan leading into the Fisher sessions, which will be critical when it comes time to picking the 53-man roster.

Same here, not paying for that.  Oh...and our opinions here have as much merit and probability of being right as his.  Too many variables to start this stuff now.

I really think that if we have to pay for reading then they should have to pay for advertising here.

Exactly. His guess is as good as any of ours. It's like paying to see someone's mock draft.

People just need to stop posting links to sites that need subscriptions. If you pay for a subscription aren't you checking it daily or weekly anyway? Why post it here

Why yes he was......

 

Overall the list is reasonable.  OL is the largest question.  He has Ford at RT which makes sense but my guess is they start him at G.

Isn't a cut & paste of subscription based content, a board no no?

I think its a good place to start. I'd prefer Derek Anderson not to make the team and another WR who shows promise. 4 TEs seem like a lot too....would have to see a lot out of Croom/Fisher for them to both make it.

Call me crazy, but I think we will carry 5 TEs this year,  and cut DiMarco

 

Kroft

Knox

Sweeney

Croom (could play wide at times)

Fisher (if he has realiable hands, he could be very useful)

 

all make the team.

 

I think it gives Daboll more options on offense this way.

I count about 43 locks to make it, from Sal's list the ones that are not locks:

 

FB - Dimarco

WR - Duke Williams

TE - Fisher

G - Teller

DL - Yarborough

LB - Alexander (though he's close because of ST)

LB - Harold

DB - J. Johnson

DB - Neal

P - Bojorquez

 

I think either Fisher or Dimarco make it not both and J. Johnson and Neal could both make it but at least one will. If Carter's ACL is healed the punting competition could be pretty good. 

 

I think they keep 6 WRs

If either Dimarco or Fisher do not make it I think they keep 9 OL and use 1 as the extra blocking TE (Waddle?) - that would give them 5 interior and 4 OTs

I do think they keep Neal and J. Johnson

I'd be really shocked if Sills didnt make the roster with how they paid to lock him up and an UDFA

No, I’m not checking it daily. It costs 99 CENTS for 3 months.  4 dollars a year.  Come on.

No.....I pay for the subscription because it costs 33 CENTS a month.  Then I come here and find all of my info.  If some of that info leads me there, I can still read it.  

 

They obviously need the money to stay afloat.  If you’ve never read their articles in the past, then I wouldn’t pay for it.  I’ve always read their articles, so paying 33 CENTS a month to support a local paper makes a lot of CENTS.  33 CENTS a month to be exact.

I thought I heard / read the Bills wanted him at RT,

 

One D&C story excerpt - 

Ford began his career playing mostly as a reserve at left guard with a few starts, but his redshirt junior year was spent at right tackle and he earned All-American honors

I never said it was expensive, so not sure why you are coming at me with that.

It's actually 33 cents per month for the first three months, followed by $8.00 per month afterwards. And when you sign up, you have to give them a credit card number and click a box that authorizes them to automatically charge your credit card very month.

Did we keep a ‘double secret option’ on JP?  And no, I don’t mean Losman...
