    every year it seems there's a surprise and with this team there's so much competition it feels like there could be a real shocker depending on how camp shakes out. Namoe someone almost everyone has penciled in right now.

    I'm going with Dane Fletcher

    Zoltan Mesko

    Prob wont happen but I honestly can't remember anything he's done that's said to me, "Wow, he's a keeper!" (think Rich Camarillo type distance)

    He has cleanly fielded some aweful snaps. I think Zoltan is one of the best punters in the game and would hate to see him go.

    3rd in net yardage, with 24 of 57 punts inside the 20, and only 3 touchbacks. I'll take that from my punter every year.

    Here's a "wow" stat for you. No rookie punter has ever had a higher net average than Mesko did his rookie year.

    He then followed that up by being 3rd in the NFL in net average this past season.

    I just looked up the numbers and can not see how you come to this compclusion.

    In 2011, Mesko punted 57 times with just 3 touchbacks and no TDs against. Tied for 11th with 46.5 avg yards is good for a punter in the North East. His net avg of 41.5 is third best and Mesko has never had a punt blocked in the NFL or in College. I think you need to re-examin your evaluation of the guy. If you're being sarcastic, I just bought it hook line and sinker.

    And if Mankins stays off PUP, I think Koppen gets cut. I also think there's a chance that Ochocinco makes it over Branch.

    I respectfully disagree. The versatility thing is overblown. Edleman
    is a good punt returner. On offense, he has caught 6 passes over
    the past two years. On defense, he was forced into action because
    of a woeful situation at safety.

    BB's statement will be " Our history is not to have elite players supporting Tom. He's to good and making everyone look bad. With that we worked out a trade with the Saints for Chase Daniels. I think in time he will made a very mediocre TE."

    But we are as thin now as were were when he made the team, got the playing time he did, and got overrated.

    Stallworth isn't a surprise, frankly I think it would take a miracle for him to make the team.
    Cunningham seems to be cut by more fans than kept. I agree it would be surprising if he is cut, but many fans expect it.
    Edelman is the opposite. I don't see him making the team. A developmental WR who hasn't developed after 3 years is on shaky ground, but he is an underdog, so fans who root for him tend to think he is better than he is, so fan sentiment almost has him as a lock.

    My off the wall prediction is that Love (or maybe Brace) will get cut if favor of my udfa binkie Marcus Forston who will surprise in camp.

    he's someone who I think gets a little overhyped by fans too, he only played 22% of the snaps last year. He's good depth, and may even improve so it's not like I hate him but there just has to be one or two tough decisions made.

    Its funny that Fletcher and Cunningham arrived together, and Cunningham was an immediate starter who was displaced due to scheme change and injury in year 2, and Fletchers playing time of 22% of the snaps was his highest, mostly due to Spikes missing many games, and the general perception of the board is that Cunnigham is a failure and Fletcher is a hidden gem.
    Lets not forget we played Tracy White at LB in the SB instead of Fletcher.

    Hoyer, by default. Just don't see any surprise cuts. Most of the names mentioned are possibilities (except the punter).
