Barring injuries, I see these players as locks or as almost locks. DEFENSE (18) DE (2) Jones, Ninkovich DT (2) Wilfork, Kelly LB (5) Mayo, Hightower, Collins, Spikes, Fletcher CB (5) Talib, Dennard, Arrington, Dowling, Ryan S (4) McCourty, Wilson, Wilson, Harmon Obviously, there is great opportunities/competition for remaining DL roster spots. This is much less so for other defensive roster spots. It seems curious that the secondary is all but set. We could keep 9 or we could add Gregory and/or Ebner. The LB's, CB's and S's listed are likely to get 95% of the reps. The only other player who could get significant reps is Gregory. Clearly there is room at the bottom for special teamers and developmental players.
