Final 53: Updating Roster Projections

Last week we projected the final 53 Panthers roster before we saw any game film. The breakdown was based on 1) previous performance, 2) Depth Chart and 3) chatter about the player.

Very scientific, I know.

I’ve updated my roster projections based on the game against the Bills and the injury to WR Kelvin Benjamin. You’ll see a few differences from last week.

One thing I’d like to do is figure out a way to have Brandon Wegher make the team. As of right now, I don’t have he or Jordan Todman making the team, with the Panthers keeping just Stewart, Cam Artis-Payne, Fozzy, Tolbert and a hybrid FB-TE Brockel as your backfield.

When I came down to the final spots, like the Panthers, you have to think about how these guys are going to play special teams. Guys like Jason Trusnik, Teddy Williams, and Colin Jones all are special teams guys.

There are a few really talented guys that just don’t make the cut, and that’s a shame. For the first time in a while, Panthers fans will see some tough cuts.

This Week’s Roster is above, here is last week’s:
