Predicting The NY Giants Final 53 Man Roster

Figuring out the depth chart for the NY Giants 2011 season is going to be a tough one, you only have 53 spots and there is a lot of talent to this 2011 Giants team.

Some tough decisions will be made here — but the key again is going to be maintaining depth of talent across all the positions. So with that said, here is my prediction for how the final 53 will shake out:

QB Eli Manning David Carr            
RB Ahmad Bradshaw Brandon Jacobs DJ Ware DaRel Scott        
FB Henry Hynoski              
WR Hakeem Nicks Mario Manningham Domenik Hixon Victor Cruz Devin Thomas Michael Clayton Jerrel Jernigan  
TE Bear Pascoe Travis Beckum Jake Ballard          
OL Kareem McKenzie Chris Snee David Diehl David Baas Kevin Boothe Will Beatty Stacy Andrews Mitch Petrus
DL Justin Tuck Osi Umenyiora Jason Pierre-Paul Dave Tollefson Chris Canty Rocky Bernard Linval Joseph Jimmy Kennedy
LB Jon Goff Michael Boley Mathias Kiwanuka Greg Jones Phillip Dillard Mark Herzlich Spencer Paysinger
CB Cory Webster Aaron Ross Brian Williams Prince Amukamara Michael Coe      
S Antrel Rolle Deon Grant Kenny Phillips Tyler Sash        
K Lawrence Tynes Rhys Lloyd            
P Steve Weatherford            
LS Zak DeOssie              

My predictions for the NY Giants Practice squad is also:

1. QB Ryan Perrilloux
2. TE Christian Hopkins
3. OL James Brewer
4. LB Adrian Tracy
5. LB Jacquian Williams
6/7. DB Joe Burnett / Jarrad Tarrant / Darnell Burks

UPDATE: This list is a work in progress. I’ve changed the list 3 times since originally posting it to correct errors, etc.

    Andre Brown, Daniel Coats, Gabe Watson do not have practice squad eligibility so they would have to be cut or make the roster because they have accrued service on 53 man rosters.

    • Andrew Ilnicki

      youre right — a work in progress. changed the list 3 times since originally posting it.

    brian jackson? or brian williams the Vet we just signed??

  • LyleM.Weiser

    I hope that Andre Brown can make it over DJ Ware. DJ has had his chances and has done zip. However, you’re probably correct; Ware will make it over Brown because of his special team’s versatility.

  • LyleM.Weiser

    Even better, both Ware and A. Brown should make it and cut Clayton who will never sees the field unless Nicks get hurt.

    Isn’t Amukamara on the IR for the first 6 games?
