Decision Day: 53-Man Roster Speculation

With cuts due by 3pm CDT (I believe, please correct me if I'm wrong), I wanted to pontifibate one last time on the 53-man roster.  It's not going to be much different than my first take.

As a refresher, here's the composition of the Texans original 53-man roster last year:

  • 2 QBs
  • 3 RBs
  • 1 FB
  • 5 WRs
  • 3 TEs
  • 5 OTs
  • 5 Gs (1 C/G)
  • 1 C
  • 3 Special Teamers (P, K, LS)
  • 6 DEs
  • 5 DTs
  • 6 LBs
  • 4 CBs
  • 5 Ss

Again, there's substantial reason to believe the roster will be similarly composed.  So here goes:

Again, that leaves us with 52 of the 53 spots.  I think it's going to come down to:

After Anthony Hill's performance last night, I believe Dreessen takes the last spot.  While Casey needs some time to mature into the position, Hill is definitely not ready.  Dreessen will be the steady hand.

As far as Grossman, I believe there's a chance he still makes the team over Jeff Zgonina.  Kubiak hasn't shown any indication he's going to take three QBs, and after last night's game, he seemed pretty non-committal about keeping Rex.  Personally, I don't believe Rex makes the team.

I'll be out of town when the cuts are made, but I'll be back this afternoon.
