Arizona Cardinals Updated 53 Man Roster Projections

New, comments

After one preseason game, how much has changed in the Arizona Cardinals 53 Man roster predictions?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

We are three days removed from the Arizona Cardinals loss at the hands of the Oakland Raiders. We've had time to review everything, so let's take a look at my newest Arizona Cardinals 53 man roster projections.

QB (2)- Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton

RB (4)- David Johnson, Chris Johnson, Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor

WR (5)- Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, Michael Floyd, Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson

I am abstaining right now from a sixth WR.  I think it comes down to Jaxon Shipley and Brittan Golden, but with the questions on the OL and DL, I am going with bulk at the other positions first.

TE (4)- Darren Fells, Jermain Gresham, Troy Niklas and Ifeanyi Momah

Also I am keeping four tight ends.

OL (9)- Jared Veldheer, Mike Iupati, A.Q. Shipley, Evan Mathis, D.J Humphries, Earl Watford, Antoine McClain, Evan Boehm and Jon Wetzel

Offense: 24

DL (9)- Calais Campbell, Corey Peters, Rodney Gunter, Ed Stinson, Xavier Williams, Frostee Rucker, Josh Mauro, Red Bryant and Robert Nkemdiche

LB (9) - Chandler Jones, Deone Buccanon, Kevin Minter, Markus Golden, Alex Okafor, Chris Clemons, Alani Fua, Kareem Martin and Shaq Riddick

This was the Hardest Part.

DB (8)- Patrick Peterson, D.J. Swearinger, Tyrann Mathieu, Brandon Williams, Justin Bethel, Tony Jefferson, Marqui Christian and Tyvon Branch

Who do you cut?  Cariel Brooks? Harlan Miller? Matthias Farley who played excellently Friday?  No thanks on this call.

Defense: 26

Specials: Chandler Catanzaro, Drew Butler and Daniel Dillon
