As the title says, predict the final roster.

For all intents and purposes, let's just leave out all the guys who are absolutely safe:

QB: Eli Manning, David Carr
HB: Ahmad Bradshaw, David Wilson
FB: Henry Hynoski
WR: Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle
TE: Martellus Bennett
T: David Diehl
G: Chris Snee, Kevin Boothe
C: David Baas

DE: Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora
DT: Linval Joseph, Rocky Bernard, Marvin Austin
LB: Chase Blackburn, Michael Boley, Mathias Kiwanuka
S: Kenny Phillips, Antrel Rolle
CB: Prince Amukamara, Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas

K: Lawrence Tynes
P: Steve Weatherford
LS: Zak DeOssie

Total: 30/53


Those are the players for sure safe. I guess there's no such thing as "for sure safe", but my jaw would drop to see any of those players cut.

Here's who's left:

QB: Ryan Perriloux
HB: D.J. Ware, Andre Brown, Da'Rel Scott
WR: Domenik Hixon, Ramses Barden, Jerrel Jernigan, Dan DePalma, David Douglas, Isaiah Stanback
TE: Adrien Robinson, Bear Pascoe, Larry Donnell
T: Will Beatty, Sean Locklear, Matt McCants, Selvish Capers, James Brewer
G: Stephen Goodin, Mitch Petrus
C: Jim Cordle, Chris White

DE: Matt Broha, Craig Marshall, Adewale Ojomo, Adrian Tracy
DT: Dwayne Hendricks, Markus Kuhn, Shaun Rogers, Marcus Thomas
LB: Mark Herzlich, Greg Jones, Jake Musasau, Spencer Paysinger, Jacquian Williams, Keith Rivers
CB: Michael Coe, Jayron Hosley, Bruce Johnson, Justin Tryon, Stevie Brown, Dante Hughes, Laron Scott
S: Will Hill, Tyler Sash

^You have to cut 21 of those players^

Who do you cut? I went through the list and could only get about 16 or 17 before I realized how difficult these decisions will be for the Giants. We're definitely going to have a few shocking cuts, and are going to have to let a few good players go. And let's not worry about the practice squad for now.

CB: Michael Coe, Jayron Hosley, Bruce Johnson, Justin Tryon, Laron Scott
S: Will Hill, Tyler Sash

Those guys make it with the exception of 1 WR and at this point in time, it has to be Hixon unfortunately in my opinion.

QB: Ryan Perriloux
HB: D.J. Ware, Da'Rel Scott
WR: Domenik Hixon, Ramses Barden, Jerrel Jernigan
TE: Adrien Robinson, Bear Pascoe
T: Will Beatty, Sean Locklear, James Brewer
C/G: Jim Cordle

DE: Adewale Ojomo
DT: Dwayne Hendricks
LB: Mark Herzlich, Spencer Paysinger, Jacquian Williams, Keith Rivers
CB: Michael Coe, Jayron Hosley, Justin Tryon
S: Will Hill, (Tyler Sash)

Notes:
-Sash out for first 4 games due to suspension. Might keep Laron Scott (CB) on the roster during that time.
-Barden impressed me, his biggest naysayer, so he gets to stay on the roster.
-We have to keep Perriloux. Carr is just too underwhelming, and his performance came against backup defenses.
-Petrus is out after what i've seen this offseason. Cordle gets the nod since he was playing all over the interior of the line tonight, and we need a backup that can play multiple positions on the line.
-I was really pulling for Andre "I got a ring" Brown, but that fumble gives me doubts, especially with the way we all know that TC treats fumblers...

EDIT: Swapping out Laron Scott (CB) for Keith Rivers (LB), since the OP forgot to have him on his original "bubble" list. By the way, you might want to fix that bro...

I'm surprised so many of you guys have Andre Brown getting cut. I think he's looked Da'Rel Scott this preseason, although Scott showed flashes last year (and the blocked punt this year).


EDIT: Swapping out Laron Scott (CB) for Keith Rivers (LB), since the OP forgot to have him on his original "bubble" list. By the way, you might want to fix that bro...

You'rr right, I did forget Rivers.

I'll add him to "on the bubble" just to keep things in sync, but he's almost certainly safe too.

We're definitely going to have a few shocking cuts, and are going to have to let a few good players go. And let's not worry about the practice squad for now.

Red indicates Practice Squad

Bold Black indicates players who will make the team

Blue indicates guys that we will have to cut to preserve the talent and who will immediately get picked up by other teams before we can sneak them into the practice squad. There are guys I did not cut because you can't hide them in the PS.

This seems pretty right on to me. I wouldn't mind seeing Jones get cut and keeping WR Douglass...I think he could have more opportunity to help the team than a backup (unimpressive) LB. Also, Hendricks v. Thomas is interesting to me...youth/possibility or veteran/last chance in a spot where some time could be seen because of injuries...I may go with the vet. Lastly, IMO, Brown > Ware, but I know that the coaches disagree and they are there every day.

Overall, I wouldn't bet against Juice33's picks here...well done sir! and look out for the '12 Giants!

You have too many players (24) and your leaving out Keith Rivers.

Also do you think the Giants will carry 7 DT's?

Yeah we're stacked at DT, I think Rogers may be sneaked onto IR.

Rivers' exclusion was first done by the OP (since corrected)
