Ken's Take on the 2011 Packers 53 man roster

I won't get too wordsy on this one. This is how I think the roster will shake out barring any injuries in camp (I'm looking at you Mike Neal). And yes, I'm on the 5 TE bandwagon. You gotta keep your 53 best players. (Starters italicized)

QB (3)Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn, Graham Harrell
RB (3)Ryan Grant, James Starks, Alex Green
FB (1) John Kuhn
WR (6) Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Chastin West
TE (5) Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless, Tom Crabtree, DJ Williams, Ryan Taylor
OL (9) Chad Clifton, Bryan Bulaga, Josh Sitton, T J Lang, Scott Wells, Marshall Newhouse, Derek Sherrod, Nick McDonald, Chris Campbell
DE (4) Ryan Pickett, Mike Neal, CJ Wilson, Jarius Wynn
DT (2) BJ Raji, Howard Green
OLB (4) Clay Mathews, Erik Walden, Brad Jones, Frank Zombo
ILB (4)AJ Hawk, Desmond Bishop, Robert Francois, DJ Smith
CB (5) Charles Woodson, Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Josh Gordy, Davon House
S (4) Morgan Burnett, Nick Collins, Charlie Peprah, Jarrett Bush
Specialists (3) – Mason Crosby, Tim Masthay, Brett Goode

Practice Squad Possibilities: Diondre Borel, Tori Gurley, Caleb Schlauderaff, Lawrence Guy, Cardia Jackson, Jay Ross, Brandian Ross, M D Jennings

Updated with news of Diyral Briggs being cut. Updated again with T J Lang in at LG and adding Harrell to the active roster.


  1. And of course I look at the interwebs today and find that I've missed the cut of Diyral Briggs. I'm guessing that means I'm right about keeping 10 OL like last year.

  2. I'd be surprised if they didn't keep Graham Harrell as a 3rd QB on the active roster. Also I feel relatively confident that either Crabtree or Taylor will be one of the final cuts. But then again they surprise me.

  3. I can't see them cutting Crabtree since he's their top blocking TE. I guess I could understand them cutting Taylor cut more, but I've heard a lot of positive reports on him from camp. I'd almost look for them to trade one of the TEs come cutdown day. I just don't know what for.

  4. If House can't get healthy, I have Ross above Pat Lee.
