Patriots 53-man roster projection: Post-minicamp edition

There are still three months to go until the Patriots open the 2019 regular season against the Steelers, but an important part of the team's roster-building process took place in Foxboro this week.

While not all players took the field, the Pats were in Foxboro for their mandatory three-day minicamp, with practices open to the media.

Practices weren't in pads, and there was no contact to speak of, but after watching the drills during the week, several players opened Phil Perry's eyes — and when you combine these workouts with other roster moves like the recent release of tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, there have been some changes to Phil's pre-minicamp roster projection.

Allowing for players who might be injured to start the season (Demaryius Thomas) or suspended (Josh Gordon), how does Phil see things shaking out at this point?

Since the last time we put together one of these, a veteran tackle retired and a veteran tight end was suspended for the first four games of the season. That means there are two more open spots that could have a domino effect on other portions of the roster. Let's dive into the names that might fill 'em.
