Post your Titans 53 man roster predictions

The final roster cuts are only 13 days away, and teams can start signing players to their Practice Squads 2 weeks from today, at noon on Sunday. So, half way through preseason, it's about time to start the final roster predictions, here's mine, and I hope you'll post yours in response.

This years roster choices somehow seem much easier than in the past, But I'm you all can tell me where I'm wrong. Of course injuries can upset this list at anytime, and I'm assuming that the early reports of Wright's and Ayers injuries last night is correct, and they are only minor. I will list the minimum number of roster spots for each position (as I see them), but I'm rather iffy on numbers 52 and 53.

OFFENSIVE PLAYERS (23):

QUARTERBACKS (2): Jake Locker, and Ryan Fitzpatrick

RUNNING BACKS (3): Chris Johnson, Shonn Greene, and Jackie Battle

FULLBACKS (1): Quinn Johnson

WIDE RECEIVERS (5): Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright (when healthy), Nate Washington, Damian Williams, and Justin Hunter

TIGHT ENDS (3): Delanie Walker (also an H-Back), Craig Stevens, and Taylor Thompson

OFFENSIVE TACKLES (4): LT - Michael Roos, RT - David Stewart, Mike Otto, and Byron Stingily

OFFENSIVE GUARDS (2): LG - Andy Levitre and RG Chance Warmack

CENTERS (3): Rob Turner (also OG), Fernando Velasco (also OG), and Brian Schwenke

DEFFENSIVE PLAYERS (26):

DEFENSIVE ENDS (4): LDE - Derrick Morgan, RDE - Kamerion Wimbley (also OLB), Ropati Pitoitua (also DT), and Lavar Edwards

DEFENSIVE TACKLES (3): Jurrell Casey, Mike Martin (also NT), and Karl Klug (also DE)

NOSE TACKLES (2): Sammy Lee Hill, and Antonio Johnson

OUTSIDE LINEBACKERS (4): SLB - Akeem Ayers, WLB - Zach Brown, Zaviar Gooden, and Scott Soloman (DE/SLB, or either Patrick Bailey or sign someone among the final cuts)

MIDDLE LINEBACKERS (3): Colin McCarthy (if healthy), Mosie Fokou, and Tim Shaw

CORNERBACKS (6, 5 is the minimum, but I prefer 6): LCB - Jason McCourty, RCB - Alterraun Verner (can shift to the slot), "Nickel" - Coty Sensabaugh, Tommy Campbell (also a S), Blidi Wreh-Wilson, and Khalid Wooton

STRONG SAFETY (2): Bernard Pollard and George Wilson (also FS)

FREE SAFETY (2): Michael Griffin and either Corey Lynch or sign someone among the final cuts

SPECIAL TEAMS (4):

KICKER (1): Rob Bironas

PUNTER (1): Brett Kern (also the holder on kicks)

LONG SNAPPER (1): Beau Brinkley (also a TE)

KICKOFF & PUNT RETURNER (1): Darius Reynaud (also a RB/WR)

PRACTICE SQUAD (8): WR - Michael Preston, TE - Brandon Barden, FB - Colin Mooney, OT - Daniel Baldridge, DT - DeJohn Harris, S - Markelle Martin, LB - Kadarron Anderson, and QB (signing among final cuts, if Rusty Smith is cut)

SOME OTHER CUTS (name players either cut or as trade bate, and aren't eligible for the Practice Squad): WR Kevin Walter, KR/PR/WR - Marc Mariani, OG/C Chris Spence, OT - Barry Richardson, S - Al Afalava, QB - Rusty Smith, LB - Patrick Bailey, LB Gary Guyton, S - Corey Lynch and OG Kasey Studdard

The 52nd roster spot went to the KR/PR, and it was a close call, but Reynaud got the edge, because of Mariani's health. The 53 roster spot comes down to QB Rusty Smith or a 4th Safety (probably Corey Lynch, but I think they might be able to do better among the final roster cuts)and that's a very tough call.
