    According to Reiss, 10 of the 20 below will make the 53-man roster. Barring any FA pickups (including he-who-shall-not-be-named), what 10 do you think will make it ?

    Safety (10)
    ============
    Rodney Harrison
    Artrell Hawkins
    Jarvis Herring
    Keon Jackson
    Tebucky Jones
    Mel Mitchell
    James Sanders
    Guss Scott
    Ray Ventrone
    Eugene Wilson

    Cornerback (10)
    ============
    Willie Andrews
    Vernell Brown
    Randall Gay
    Ellis Hobbs
    Hank Poteat
    Asante Samuel
    Chad Scott
    Antwain Spann
    Eric Warfield
    Gemara Williams

    #24 Jersey

    Safeties: Harrison, Wilson, Hawkins, Sanders, Scott

    Corners: Asante, Hobbs, Gay, Warfield, Scott

    I also think Mel Mitchell makes the team is a strictly special teams role.

    A safe selection and it's hard to disagree.

    I don't write off Tebucky as a special teamer, rather than Mitchell, and would have an irrational longshot bet on Vernell Brown as a PR.

    I think that Hawkins and both Scotts should be looking over their shoulders.

    Mitchell and Tebucky bring so much to special teams that they'll work their way onto the roster. Guss Scott - time to show you can stay healthy.

    Locks: Samuel, Hobbs, Wilson, Harrison (probably PUP).
    Near Locks: Gay, Hawkins
    CB depth: Chad Scott, Warfield

    That leaves about 3-4 spots for the backup safety/Special Teams roles amongst Mitchell, Tebucky, Sanders, Gus Scott and Andrews. Chances are good that injruies will make the decisions easy.

    I really don't see any of the other 7 guys making a serious push for the roster.

    Jeez, this is my list and there's 12 of them. I wouldn't be surprised if we keep one more DB and one less LB.

    Safety
    ============
    Rodney Harrison
    Artrell Hawkins
    Tebucky Jones
    Mel Mitchell
    James Sanders
    Eugene Wilson

    Cornerback
    ============
    Willie Andrews
    Randall Gay
    Ellis Hobbs
    Asante Samuel
    Chad Scott
    Eric Warfield


    I guess if I have to whack two from here, it's Scott and Mitchell, but . . .

    Well I guess you guys can field an entire defense just made up of defensive backs.

    I don't think for a moment that this will happen. We NEED four corners and three safeties. And the fourth corner is likely to be a DNP or even inactive. I will list eight because Harrison may be kept on the 53, even though not at near 100%.

    THE EIGHT
    Samuel, Hobbs, Warfield, Gay
    Harrison,Wilson,Hawkins,Sanders

    THE SPECIAL TEAMERS
    Jones and Mitchell

    I think that this is plently. All these players are ready to play, no developmental projects. Sanders was our nickel last year, and did reasonably well. Hawkins may not be a corner any more, but he certainly could be a dime back if we had two injuries, and Jones could play that role.

    CLOSE
    Chad Scott (over Warfeild) or Law over Warfield and Scott
    Guss Scott (over Hawkins or Mitchell)

    why would we let leadership leave? Hawkins made us better because he was a leader for us..our young guys looked lost without a vet.

    No Jersey Selected

    I'm stuck in Shanghai and believe it or not there's not much Pats news reported or discussed here. It's all NBA, soccer, and ping pong. Though I did show my colleague here a pic of Gillette stadium.

    Am I to take it from the lack of Law posts that Ty is not coming back? Or is all just quiet on that front and anything could still happen?

    Anything could still happen with Law. We are one of three teams interested

    I'd give it odds of 3:1 against.

    OT: How do you manage to keep kosher in Shanghai?
