    With 48 roster spots selected we now have to choose the remaining 5 open spots. These can be ST contributors, depth, or maybe just a development player. The Poll limits me to 10 choices so I chose the 10 players based on a combination of likelihood and previous voting.

    Do we keep the 3rd TE? How about a 9th OL? Or maybe a dedicated PR?

    I chose the following:

    Stewart (WR) - 2nd year player will make the roster and can hopefully become a contributor
    Tomlinson (TE) - best inline blocking TE on the roster will make the team
    Donahue (OLB) - off field issues are a concern but Greene will make him into a contributor
    Copeland (ILB/OLB) - his versatility and ST ability will get him on the roster
    Clark (CB/S) - I'm really intrigued by his "big nickel" potential so I chose him over Roberts for the #6 corner spot

    Daryl Roberts is a good depth player and Claiborne obviously has trouble staying healthy. Nickerson and Skrine are best served in the slot. I’m keeping Roberts as a backup outside corner since Burris was underwhelming last year.

    I don't think things will come down as you and/or the votes described. I don't think there will be 48 players who are pretty much locks and then 5 bubble players.

    I don't see any way that Mauldin makes the team barring a lights out TC, and I just don't think he's capable. Nor do I think that Burris makes the final roster over Roberts, or that Dozier will make the roster over Qvale. I think that Donahue makes it over Mauldin, Roberts makes it over Burris, and Qvale makes it over Dozier.

    Neither do I think the Jets would possibly keep only 2 TEs with Bates liking to use 2-TE sets, especially with both Leggett and Herndon coming off serious injuries. I think that Tomlinson makes it as the 3rd TE (and they may even keep 4 TEs) and Minter makes it as the 4th ILB.

    Cannon hasn't returned punts before and has been somewhat "iffy." Unless he proves totally reliable in camp, I think there's a chance that Whitehead or the other Roberts wins the job, and Cannon goes to the PS.

    Thus, I think there will only be 3 spots that will be debatable, and I only voted for 3 players. I think those 3 spots will be filled by Stewart, Clark and Whitehead. I don't think Peake has a serious chance of making the roster.

    Copeland's versatility is intriguing, but could be seen as a luxury since he really doesn't offer much as a pass rusher.
