JP Finlay, Rich Tandler, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey took a break from their daily practice recap podcasts to collectively build a 53-man roster projection for the 'Skins in a special episode.

Of course, things will change between now and cut-down day. Injuries will pop up and preseason studs and duds will show themselves, too. But based on what they've seen so far, who'll make the squad? Here's who they chose.


(2) Alex Smith, Colt McCoy

Notable quote: "They're not keeping Kevin Hogan." - JP

Running back

(4) Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson, Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine

Notable quote: "I will go back to Perine [over Marshall]. Unless they can trade him." - Rich

Wide receiver

(6) Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, Jamison Crowder, Trey Quinn, Maurice Harris, Brian Quick

Notable quote: "They wanna be a 'win now' team. They can't be keeping guys like [Robert] Davis who need to grow so much." - Pete  

Tight end

(3) Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Jeremy Sprinkle

Offensive line

(9) Trent Williams, Morgan Moses, Brandon Scherff, Chase Roullier, Shawn Lauvao, Ty Nsekhe, Geron Christian, Tony Bergstrom, Tyler Catalina

Notable quote: "They kept Catalina last year, right? I think he's probably got the leg up."  - JP

Defensive line

(6) Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, Matt Ioannidis, Tim Settle, Anthony Lanier, Ziggy Hood

Notable quote: "Jon Allen is a leader on that defense." - Mitch


Note: Stacy McGee was not listed because the hosts expect him to start the season on the PUP as of now.

Inside linebacker

(5) Zach Brown, Mason Foster, Zach Vigil, Josh Harvey-Clemons, Shaun Dion Hamilton

Notable quote: "I do think they would love, love, love if they could sneak [Hamilton] to the PUP, to the IR. I don't know that it'll work, but I think they would love to do that. Let him recuperate the whole way from that knee and then they get to keep Vigil and Spaight." - JP

Outside linebacker

(5) Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, Ryan Anderson, Pernell McPhee, Pete Robertson

Notable quote: "What has Pete Robertson ever shown?!" - Rich (who personally would've kept four OLBs).


(6) Josh Norman, Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau, Orlando Scandrick, Adonis Alexander, Greg Stroman

Notable quote: "[Undrafted free agent] Danny Johnson and Stroman are similar and right now Danny is playing better. I think Adonis has that rare body type and kind of skillset you wanna look at. So I'll take Danny and Adonis over Stroman." - Pete (who would've kept Johnson over Stroman but was voted down).


(4) DJ Swearinger, Montae Nicholson, Deshazor Everett, Troy Apke

Notable quote: "I think they'll carry five and keep Fish [Smithson]." - Rich 


(3) Dustin Hopkins, Tress Way, Nick Sundberg
