Arizona Cardinals Final 53 Man Roster Prediction

New, comments

A look at my guess for the Arizona Cardinals final 53 man roster.

NFL: Preseason-Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

While Steve Keim and company anguish over their final 53 man roster decision, I sat down and took a stab at what I thought the Arizona Cardinals 53 man roster would look like come Saturday.

Feel free to disagree, but these were the final 53 for me, also note, I am not saying I agree with this, but this is my prediction, not what I would do.

QB (2):
Carson Palmer
Drew Stanton

RB (4):
David Johnson
Chris Johnson
Andre Ellington
Stepfan Taylor

WR (6):
Larry Fitzgerald
Michael Floyd
John Brown
J.J. Nelson
Jaron Brown
Jaxon Shipley

TE (4):
Jermaine Gresham
Darren Fells
Troy Niklas
Ifeanyi Momah

OL (8):
Jared Veldheer
Mike Iupati
A.Q. Shipley
Evan Mathis
D.J. Humprhies
Earl Watford
Evan Boehm
Cole Toner

Offense: 24

Nothing surprising outside of I have Shipley over Golden, but this is likely wrong.

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

LB (8):
Markus Golden
Deone Bucannon
Kevin Minter
Chandler Jones
Alex Okafor
Lamar Louis
Alani Fua
Shaq Riddick

DB (9):
Patrick Peterson
D.J. Swearinger
Tyrann Mathieu
Justin Bethel
Harlan Miller
Tyvon Branch
Tony Jefferson
Brandon Williams
Marquis Christian

Defense: 26

Well… Injuries suck. Bryant and Riddick make the roster, Martin hopefully is not injured bad, or Okpalaugo.

Miller and Christian will be important specialists I believe, so they make the team more so than for their ability in secondary… right now.

Specials are known, sound off on where I was wrong, or do a FanPost of your own 53. Maybe yours will be better.
