Building The 53 - The Most Likelies*

Yesterday I gave you my 35 locks* to make The 53.  I think there are 15 guys that will most likely* make The 53, which is down from 18 last year, but that is because there are eight more locks* for The 53 this year over last season.

Just to reiterate, you may have noticed the asterisk in the title and throughout this post.  I put that there because if any of the following guys suffer a season ending injury during training camp (knocking on wood as I type), the Packers will place them on injured reserve so they would not make The 53 but still would be in the team's long-term plans.  Absent a season ending injury, here are the 15 most likelies* to make The 53:

Quarterback: Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien

Running BackDuJuan Harris
Fullback: John Kuhn
Wide Receiver: Jared Abbrederis

Tight End: Ryan Taylor
Offensive Tackle: Derek Sherrod
Offensive Guard: None
Center: Corey Linsley
Defensive End: None
Defensive Tackle: Letroy Guion
Middle Linebacker: Jamari Lattimore

Outside Linebacker: Nick Perry and Carl Bradford
Cornerback: Davon House and Jarrett Bush

Safety: Sean Richardson
Specialist: None

That means absent injury, there are really only three roster spots up for grabs.  Check back tomorrow for my initial thoughts on the disposition of those final three roster spots.
