    I'll say that the practce squad will be:

    OT/OG-George Bussey
    OT- Thomas Welch
    OG-Rich Ornberger
    WR- Darnell Jenkins
    LB- Thomas Williams
    S- Sergio Brown
    TE- Rob Myers

    - The last spot will most likely come from another roster but it could be Zac Robinson

    Hmmm . . . . I'll go with, assuming only Pats players:

    OL: Two of Ohrnberger, Bussey, Welch, Larsen
    QB: Robinson
    WR: Jenkins, Farnham (play DB on scout teams?)
    TE: Myers
    S: Brown
    LB: Williams

    #50 Jersey

    I would add Farnham to that list.

    They might also try to find a way to keep Ventrone.

    Robinson
    Jenkins
    Farnham
    Myers
    Welch
    Larsen
    Williams
    Brown

    Ticks all the boxes except RB.

    4 athletes (2 WR's, TE, S). FB/LB in Thomas Williams. 2 developmental OLmen. QB.

    Wouldn't shock me if someone else was picked up at QB though.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pats claim Alex Hall off waivers or sign him to the PS>

    Here's a list of players that were recently cut that are practice squad eligible:

    QB: Zac Robinson
    RB: Chris Taylor, Thomas Clayton
    WR: Darnell Jenkins, Buddy Farnham, Rod Owens
    TE: Rob Myers, Carson Butler
    OL: Ted Larsen, Rich Ohrnberger, Thomas Welch, George Bussey, Brian Simmons

    DL: none
    OLB: none
    ILB: Thomas Williams
    S: Sergio Brown, Ross Ventrone
    CB: DeAngelo Willingham, Terrence Johnson


    For right now I'll guess Sergio Brown, Rob Myers, Darnell Jenkins, Thomas Williams, Thomas Welch, Ted Larsen, George Bussey, and Buddy Farnham. Given how accurate my 53-man roster predictions were, I'll probably be correct on about half of those.



    For an historical perspective, here is a list of who began 2009 on the Pats' practice squad:

    TE Robbie Agnone
    OT Patrick Brown
    DT Titus Adams
    DT Adrian Grady
    DL Darryl Richard
    WR Terrence Nunn
    WR Isiah Stanback
    CB DeAngelo Willingham


    And the practice squad at the start of the 2008 season:

    DL Titus Adams
    OL Jacob Bender
    SS Mark Dillard
    RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis
    OLB Vince Redd
    CB Mike Richardson
    FS Antwain Spann
    TE Tyson Devree

    DB Sergio Brown
    CB DeAngelo Willingham
    OL Rich Ohrnberger
    OL George Bussey
    QB Zac Robinson

    I can see NE exploring the following players to see if they'll suit:
    OLB Alex Daniels (Oakland)
    DE John Fletcher (Arizona)
    DE Malcom Sheppard (Houston)
    DE Jarron Gilbert (Chicago)

    I think that O-berger is gone. He had a golden opportunity to not only make the team, but be the #1 interior backup, and was cut. I dont see the point in putting him on the ps. I'd rather use the slot to bring in a different guy we think can develop who hasnt failed here already.
    Huge, huge disappointment that he spit the bit.

    I do think a QB will be on the PSquad..maybe NOT Robinson..it may depend on what BB sees in him. Would they bring back Gutierrez or O'Connell for that?? THAT could be interesting but might have already burned those bridges.
    Jenkins and or Farnham...absolutely.
    Meyers would be a solid one..BUT that is if no team signs him.
    Two OL I think will be part of the PSquad which?? I tend to agree that O=berger is gone. Bussey may have an inside track, but Larson or Welch could also stick.
    Maybe a DL from another team or if Love or Deaderick are cut..but at least 1 DL.
    LBs again, I am thinking other teams...Alex Hall MIGHT be a good pickup here; Fletcher, if he's cut, even Williams.
    DBs..Brown definitely...
    More than 8 there...so it will be a bit tougher.

    I love Dane Fletcher, but in an ideal world they would figure a way to put him on the practice squad...unless they see him helping this season.

    I think we could do better than Larsen and Oberg and Zac Robinson personally but Zac is an arm they can use for the time being.

    I hope we get some more intriguing prospects from around the league.

    What about Al Woods, who was cut by New Orleans? He was their 4th rounder this year out of LSU. He worked at DT in the Saints 4-3 defense, but he has the size and agility to be a 3-4 DE. Worth a peek. Hey, we're talking PS here...

    Bridges don't matter; neither is eligible: Gutierrez is a fourth-year player, and O'Connell's eligibility got burned up when he was Cassel's backup in 2008.

    [Which raises an interesting question: why burn his eligibility like that anyways when you have Gutierrez?]

    I suggest you check the rules before making statements..it helps.

    Do you have the specific rule that proves him wrong?

    One thing I've noticed about CTPatsfan77 is that he's usually got the rules down pretty well and rarely, if ever, mis-speaks on them..

    I don't know what their eligibility is, but I don't think either of them will be on BB's call list.. Not when both were cut last year.

    I had the same thought when I saw NO placed him on waivers. Not sure he'll clear waivers though.

    The latter may be true..but he STILL needs to take a look at the rule..and I guess you do as well...

    Obviously, you must be seeing something I'm not, because I've looked at the rule, and everything I see tells me that neither Gutierrez nor O'Connell is eligible. What am I missing?

    [I already stated my reasoning; if you're going to flat out say I'm wrong, certainly it's not too much to ask that you explain your logic.]

    You are correct. They are not.
