QB: Ben, Rudolph, Hodges (although I think Dobbs will be #3 and Hodges go to the PS)
RB: Connor, Samuels, Snell (the other RB's showed they aren't better than Snell)
FB: Nix
WR: JuJu, Washington, Moncrief, Johnson, Switzer, Holton (I take Holton over Rogers and Spencer, because Rogers is basically the same as Switzer and Spencer only has value as a return specialist)
TE: McDonald, Grimble, Gentry (I would look at other team cuts to replace Grimble)
C: Pouncey, Finney
OT: Villanueva, Fieler, Banner, Okorafor
OG: Decastro, Foster, Johnson (also Finney who is back-up center)

OLB: Watt, Dupree, Skipper, Ola (Steelers will keep Chickillo I guess, maybe they keep 5 OLB's this year and only 3 safeties or Ola goes to IR)
ILB: Bush, VW, Barron, Gilbert III, Matakevich
DL: Heyward, Tuitt, Hargrave, Buggs, McCullers, Mondeaux (close call with Alualu, they probably will keep him)
CB: Haden, Nelson, Sutton, Burns, Hilton, Layne
S: Edmunds, Davis, Kelly, Dangerfield

K: Boswell
P: Berry (I would try to get Ryan Allen, last year's true SB MVP)
LS: Canaday

What are your thoughts? Who would you keep?

Please not Okorafor. Good Lord, every play I've seen him, he gets beat by 2nd and 3rd stringers. He sucks at pass protection and is going to get someone seriously injured if he has to go in the game.

Okorafor has been okay when he's at RT. They tried him out at LT and that was a bit disastrous though understandable because LT is much more difficult to play at the NFL level.

53 as I expected, except for Holton not making it. I don't understand that since he made plays as a WR and as a ST, everything the Steelers need. Only 5 WR, I hope Holton makes it to the practice squad and that's he promoted to the 53 once one of the LB's goes to IR.

No WTH cuts this year. If Holton clears waivers I expect him to go to PS. I am surprised that we couldn't get a little better deal for Hawkins though. We got a 1 round bump for him from 7th to 6th. It's not even a full pick. Just a swap and he was thrown in for free. Oh well. Move on. I am glad to see Gilbert III and Skipper both made it. I think our ST got an upgrade assuming they play Skipper on STs.

All in all pretty predictable.

I was surprised to see that they got anything for Hawkins at all. He hasn't done anything in 3 years and has an injury history. Seeing he's going to the Buccaneers means we get a high 6th round pick instead of a low 7th round My 53 1797695198 Not bad!

Holton made it to our practice squad. The Broncos snagged Spencer.

Tuzar Skipper was waived. Holton has been promoted.

Let's hope Skipper can clear waivers.
